1989 Topps Major League Debut #142: Kevin Wickander
PHOTO: Wow this is an almost identical photo to that on Russ Swan's card, absence of baseball and all.
STAT: Wickander didn't give up many home runs (even rate-based he was good.) However, his last 2 were doozies--both grand slams when his team was already down by 4 runs.
ANAGRAM: Kevin Wickander, Indians = Advanced in kinkier wins
Wickander was an above-average lefty who put together several nice seasons although, like a lot of lefty relievers, didn't pitch many innings. He also walked too many batters.
