Paul Gibson

Both a starter and reliever, Gibson pitched well in his rookie season, going 4-2 with a 2.93 ERA, but experienced control problems in 1989. Nevertheless, he teamed with Mike Henneman as Sparky Anderson‘s main lefty-righty tandem in 1990 and ’91 before moving to the Mets in January 1992 in a deal for outfielder Mark Carreon.

Gibson spent four years in the Big Apple — he caught on with the Yankees when the Mets released him in June 1993 — but never really played a key role in either team’s bullpen plans.
