Despite being an outstanding minor league player, the lefthanded-hitting Pasqua never lived up to New York’s high expectations and was traded to the White Sox, with Mark Salas and Steve Rosenberg, after 1987 for pitchers Rich Dotson and Scott Nielsen. Pasqua was the International League 1985 Rookie of the Year and MVP even though he played in just 78 games (.321, 18 HR, 69 RBI) before being called up. He homered in his second major league at-bat. Though he hit 20 homers as a starter in 1988, his first year in Chicago, they came with a lowly .227 batting average. He would play in over 100 games only twice more in his career.
