Jeff Robinson

San Francisco dealt this promising fastball/forkball reliever for veteran Rick Reuschel during the 1987 stretch drive. Robinson combined with stopper Jim Gott to give the Pirates an outstanding bullpen in 1988, but when Gott was injured on Opening Day 1989, Robinson failed to hold the stopper job by himself and was switched to starting before the end of the season. Pittsburgh later traded him to the Yankees for Don Slaught, but he left the Bronx as a free agent after George Steinbrenner criticized his performance on the mound following hernia surgery.
