Today In Brewer History: Farewell, Geoff Jenkins

On this day in 2007 Geoff Jenkins signed a two year deal with the Phillies, effectively ending his Brewer career.

Jenkins was a rare draft success for the mid-90's Brewers, who selected the USC outfielder with the ninth overall pick in 1995. He made his Brewer debut as a 23 year old in 1998 and was a mainstay in left field for most of the next ten years. His best season came in 2000, when he hit .303/.360/.588 with a career high 34 home runs.

Jenkins finished his Brewer career with a .275/.347/.496 batting line over 1234 games. He's third on the Brewer all time list with 212 home runs, fourth with 704 RBI, fifth with 661 runs and is tied for the franchise record with 95 HBP.

After spending one season as a Phillie, being released and taking a year off, Jenkins returned to the Brewers for one day to announce his retirement in 2010.
