screwy

Here is my best explanation:

'eccentric' is the definition.
(thesaurus)

'unknown on second team' is the wordplay.
'unknown' becomes 'y' (algebra).
'on' says to put letters next to each other.
'second' becomes 's' (common abbreviation).
'team' becomes 'crew' (crew is a kind of team).
's'+'crew'='screw'
'y' put after 'screw' is 'SCREWY'.

'is' is the link.
