Padre of the Day
Dravecky was one of the best pitchers for the Padres during the 1980s. He joined the Padres as a rookie in 1982 and was an All-Star in 1983, going 14-10 with a 3.58 ERA. On July 4, 1987, Dravecky was traded to the San Francisco Giants alongside Craig Lefferts and Kevin Mitchell. The next season, doctors found a cancerous tumor in his pitching arm and he was unable to fully recover from the injury. In 1991, Dravecky’s left arm and shoulder were amputated.
