Major League career

Originally signed as a catcher by the Phillies in 1968, Trillo was selected by the Oakland Athletics from the Phillies in the Rule 5 draft in 1969.[2 ] He started his Major League career with Oakland on June 28, 1973. After being traded with two other players in exchange for Billy Williams, he was the Cubs' regular second baseman for four seasons before returning to Philadelphia in an 8-player trade.[2 ][3] Trillo batted a career-high .292 for the 1980 World Series-winning Phillies, and was named the Most Valuable Player of the 1980 National League Championship Series when he hit .381 with four runs batted in against the Houston Astros.[4][5] Trillo won his third Gold Glove Award in 1982, when he set a since-broken major-league record for consecutive errorless chances at second base (479), falling two games short of Joe Morgan's record 91-game errorless streak.[6][7]

A four-time All-Star, Trillo was a three-time Gold Glove winner and hit .263 in his career.[1 ][8][9][10]
