Kevin Tapani

Kevin Ray Tapani
Batted: Right
Threw: Right
Height: 6'0"
Weight: 180 lbs.
Born: February 18, 1964 in Des Moines, IA
Drafted: 2nd round 1986 by the Oakland Athletics
Acquired: traded from the Athletics with
Wally Whitehurst as part of a three-team trade, December 1987; the Los Angeles Dodgers sent Bob Welch and Matt Young to the Athletics; the Dodgers sent Jack Savage to the Mets; the Athletics sent Alfredo Griffin and Jay Howell to the Dodgers; the Mets sent Jesse Orosco to the Dodgers
Departed: traded to the Minnesota Twins with
Rick Aguilera, Tim Drummond, David West and a player to be named later (Jack Savage) for Frank Viola, July 1989

 

This long-time big leaguer debuted with the Mets (as evidenced by the 1990 Topps Debut card below), but only pitched in three games with New York before being packaged to Minnesota in the Frank Viola trade.  Won 16 games twice for the Twins, and then won as many as 19 for the Cubs in 1998, despite rather a high ERA.  Pictured here at the top is a 1995 Topps Embossed card.  Other cards are pictured below.
