John Butcher

Sinker specialist Butcher was drafted four times before signing as a first-rounder with Texas. Although he one-hit the Royals (8/16/83), he did not establish himself as a regular starter until he was traded to the Twins in 1983 as part of the Gary Ward deal. He was 13-11 and 11-14 in two years in Minnesota before suffering a career-ending arm injury.
