Félix José Fermín Minaya (born October 9, 1963) is a former shortstop in Major League Baseball who played for the Pittsburgh Pirates (1987-1988), Cleveland Indians (1989-1993), Seattle Mariners (1994-1995) and Chicago Cubs (1996). He is the current manager of the Delfines de Ciudad del Carmen in the Mexican League.


On August 22, 1989, Fermin tied an 87-year-old MLB record with four sacrifice hits in one game against the Seattle Mariners.[1] Along with Reggie Jefferson, Fermín was traded by the Cleveland Indians to the Seattle Mariners in exchange for Omar Vizquel before the 1994 season. Fermín was a regular starter in 1995 when the Mariners won the American League's Western Division. He led the AL in sacrifice hits (32) in 1989; he also led the AL in most at bats per strikeout (34.3) in 1993. In 1996, Fermin was very nearly traded to the Yankees for Mariano Rivera.[2]

In a 10-season career, Fermín played in 903 games and had 2,767 at-bats, 294 runs, 718 hits, 86 doubles, 11 triples, 4 home runs, 207 runs batted in, 27 stolen bases, 166 walks, a .259 batting average, a .305 on-base percentage, a .303 slugging average, 838 total bases.

Fermín is the current manager for Águilas Cibaeñas of the Dominican Winter League. Since 2000, he has led the team to five championships until he was removed from the job in 2009. He was then hired to be the manager for the Gigantes del Cibao until the Aguilas Cibaeñas hired him back in 2011.

As a player, his nickname was "El Gato", for Felix the Cat and his quick reflexes and defense too.
