Luke Prokopec, former Blue Jays. Now the Reds?
There are currently actually 11 Australians on the 40 man rosters for big league teams. The most well known one I guess is Grant Balfour who pitched out of the pen well last year for the Twins. Damian Moss had a couple of semi-decent seasons - but got done for a banned substance. Chris Snelling might be in the bigs if he had stayed healthy with the Mariners...he can play, made his brief debut a couple of seasons ago til he did his knee.
But yeah there are hundreds of Aussies in the minors. One of the top prospects in the minors is an Australian named Justin Huber for the Royals. He'll probably be up at some stage.
Not sure how many guys have been in the bigs that are Australian.....maybe 10-12?
