Casey Cox

After three years as an effective reliever, 6’5″ Casey Cox went 8-12 as a starter in 1970. Off to a 0-3 start in 1971, Cox asked Washington manager Ted Williams to return to the bullpen. He won five and saved seven, and Williams declared that “Casey might be the best-righthanded relief pitcher in the league.” Cox was out of the majors two years later.
