1989 Topps Major League Debut #33: Mike Dyer
Now isn't this odd. If Dyer's middle name were "Cud," that would be really neat. Because then we'd have two Twins players: Mike Cud Dyer and Mike Cuddyer.
PHOTO: Looks like he's checking the runner. Get used to that, dude, because you're going to give up a lot of baserunners in your career.
STAT: After starting in 1989, Dyer was a reliever for the rest of his career. But he did spin a few nice gems, including his only complete game, a 1-run effort against the White Sox.
After his MLB debut in 1989, 16 games with the Twins, Dyer went to the minors and resurfaced again in 1994 with the Pirates. In 1995 and 1996, he was a league-average reliever pitching 150 innings over the 2 seasons.
