NOT REALLY MISSING IN ACTION- 1978 JOHN CANEIRA

Here’s a 1978 card for a guy who appeared in only six games for the California Angels in 1977. But hey! Always worth a card in my book! A “not so missing” card for former pitcher John Caneira:


Caneira went 2-2 over those six games, with a 4.08 earned run average and 17 strikeouts over 28.2 innings pitched, the first Major League action of his brief two-year career.
When he returned to the mound in 1978, he got into only two games, not factoring in a decision and posting a 7.04 E.R.A., with both appearances being starts for the Angels.
That would be it for him on a big league mound, finishing up with that 2-2 record over eight games, with a 4.71 E.R.A. and 17 strikeouts in 36.1 innings pitched.
