With the Tulsa Oilers in 1977, he went 13-4 with a 2.51 ERA, leading the Texas League with 4 shutouts.

He showed quite an improvement after the All-Star break in 1988. Before the break, he went 3-8 with a 4.69 ERA. After the break, he went 5-5 with a 2.68 ERA while pitching for the Houston Astros.
