Brunet made over 30 minor and major league moves before sticking with the Angels for four-plus years starting in 1965. A hard-luck pitcher, he led the AL in losses in 1967 (19) and ’68 (17) despite good ERAs of 3.31 and 2.85. In 15 of his losses in 1967, his teammates scored two runs or less. Brunet was still pitching in the Mexican League past age fifty. He holds the minor league strikeout record with more than 3100.
