Jeff Nelson was one of the toughest setup relief pitchers during his exceptional 15-year major league career.
He played three stints with the Mariners (1992-95, 2001-03 and 2005) and still holds the record for most games pitched in franchise history.
Nelson was also a Yankee twice (1996-2000 and 2003) and won four World Series titles with the Bronx Bombers.
After retiring, he turned to broadcasting and is currently an analyst with MLB.com.
