Dodgers organization, appeared in 25 games for the Dodgers in 1977,
going 2-3 with an earned run average of 5.34, all out of the bullpen.
The previous year saw him appear in 31 games, going 2-2 with an ERA of
3.60, throwing a career high 50 innings while also picking up a save.
In 1975 he had the first taste of the Majors, getting into 10 games for
the reigning National League champs, going 0-1 with a nice 1.69 ERA over
16 innings at the age of 24.
