Greg Cadaret was signed as an 11th round pick in the 1983 amateur draft by the Oakland A's and scout Frank Franchi. On the heels of his finest big league season (5-2, 2.58 ERA, 64 strikeouts in 71 2/3 innings in 1988) and off to a 2.28 ERA in 26 games in 1989, he was one of three players traded to the New York Yankees on June 21, 1989, in return for superstar Rickey Henderson; the others were Eric Plunk and Luis Polonia. Mainly a relief pitcher with a stout fastball, he struggled with control problems most of his career, and never was more than a marginal pitcher in the bigs thereafter. Cadaret played for 8 different teams in a span of 10 years, with his most solid season after his promising start coming in a 68 game 1991 in New York, going 8-6 with a 3.62 ERA and 105 strikeouts in 121 2/3 innings. He capped his career with a stint with the Texas Rangers in 1998, finishing with 451 appearances and a 38-32, 3.99 record.
