Javier was a talented player and a classic fourth outfielder: someone who can give a club good defense, blazing speed, and a switch-hitting bat with decent average, but who cannot sustain his play over a full season. His production was good from both sides of the plate, and he had a strong arm with excellent range, being able to play any outfield position. He is also one of only three players to bat against (current Red Sox manager) Terry Francona, and the only one who struck out.

Stan Javier | BaseballLibrary.com (1239 words)
Javier filled in admirably for Lenny Dykstra, who would be on the bench for the rest of the season with a hamstring strain and a hand injury.
Javier signed a two-year contract for $2.1 million with the San Francisco Giants in December 1995 with an opportunity to be the regular centerfielder, but as luck would have it, spent much of 1996 on the disabled list.
Javier was traded to the Houston Astros in August 1999, as Houston began to stockpile possible outfielders for its postseason run with four of their outfielders, including Moises Alou and Richard Hidalgo, on the DL.
