Nyjer Morgan net worth: Nyjer Morgan is a Major League Baseball outfielder who has a net worth of $500 thousand. Also known by his nickname "Tony Plush," he has earned his net worth by playing for a total of three MLB teams so far, including the Pittsburgh Pirates, the Washington Nationals, and his current team, the Milwaukee Brewers. One of Morgan's first big plays in baseball came on September 14th, 2007, when he made a catch that sent the Pirates to a 4 to 3 victory against the Brewers. One of the people who noticed this catch was none other than Houston Astros manager Cecil Cooper, who said of the catch "That's probably the best catch I've seen this year." The catch also invited comparison's to Willy Mays' famous "The Catch," most notably on the ESPN sports news program SportsCenter. Since this auspicious beginning, Morgan's star in the sport of baseball has continued to rise, but he hasn't been free from controversy. One troubling incident took place on May 23rd, 2010, when Morgan reacted angrily to a missed ball by tossing his glove to the side and storming off the field. He's also courted controversy through his Twitter account, which he often uses to taunt his fellow players.
In November 2011, a former girlfriend of Nyjer's by the name of Jordana Lenz began appearing as a cast member of the new VH1 reality show Baseball Wives. Jordana Lenz has been described as rude, bitchy, flirtatious and a gold digger. She and Nyjer dated for a little over a year.
