Dave Tomlin

Used primarily against lefthanded hitters, Tomlin averaged 60 appearances a year in relief for the 1974-77 Padres. He was traded to Texas with $125,000 for Gaylord Perry in January of 1978, but in March was sold to the Reds, who had first signed him in 1967. He went 9-1 in ’78, despite a 5.81 ERA. He spent most of the 1980s in the minors, and in 1982 he led the American Association in appearances.
