A 1977 CAREER-CAPPER FOR LONG-TIME RELIEF PITCHER WAYNE GRANGER

Time to give long-time reliever Wayne Granger a career-capping 1977 card as he closed out a nice nine-year career in 1976 with the Montreal Expos:


Granger appeared in 27 games for Montreal, going 1-0 with two saves over 32 innings of work along with a 3.66 earned run average.
Of course, his MLB heyday were the early-1970’s with the Cincinnati Reds when he posted 27 and 35 saves respectively in 1969 and 1970, appearing in as many as 90 games during that ‘69 campaign.
After the 1971 season he moved around a lot, playing for the Twins, Cardinals, Yankees, White Sox, Astros and Expos over what would be the last five years of his career.
He finished up with an even 35-35 record, along with 108 saves and a 3.14 E.R.A., with 303 strikeouts over 451 appearances and 638.2 innings of work.
