Don't know if you're looking to expand beyond baseball, but there's always Ernie Davis (

Heisman Trophy winner drafted #1 overall by the Washington Redskins in 1962, he was immediately traded to the Cleveland Browns for future HoF Bobby Mitchell and Leroy Jackson (drafted #11 overall in 1962). He was then diagnosed with Leukemia, and coach Paul Brown refused to take the risk of letting him play, Davis never played a down in an NFL game. The Browns still retired his #45 jersey.
