Every MLB Team's Most Worthless Player

On every MLB team, there's a player who makes fans ask, "Okay, why is he here, again?"

These players may include underachievers, choke artists, overpaid injury risks or guys who are just plain bad.  No matter how much they hurt the team, they remain on the roster and continue to earn their seemingly unwarranted paychecks by any means possible, even if it's just sitting on the bench.  As a result, they continue to drive the fans crazy and to be distractions.

One can only imagine how Los Angeles Angels fans feel about outfielder Vernon Wells, who used to be a powerful bat and could hit for a decent average.  Once he came to the Angels, however, it all disappeared.  He serves no real purpose to the team now that Mike Trout is in the picture, but GM Jerry DiPoto can't get rid of him thanks to his massive contract.

The sad part is that the league is rampant with players like Wells.  Even sadder is that he may not be the most worthless player in the league.
