Righty starting pitcher Rick Reuschel was a workhorse starting pitcher for some very bad Chicago Cubs’ teams. His best year came in 1977 when he pitched in 39 games (37 starts) for the Cubs in which he was 20-10 with 1 save, a 2.79 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP. Reuschel finished 3rd in the N.L. Cy Young voting in 1977 and he made the All-Star team for the Cubs that year. Reuschel has now pitched in 358 games (343 starts) in his 12 years with the Cubbies and he was 135-127 with 3 saves, a 3.50 ERA and a 1.31 WHIP. Reuschel is #8 in Cubs’ history in games pitched with 358. He’s also #2 in games started (343), #6 in innings pitched (2,290) and he’s #5 in strikeouts (1,367) in Cubs’ history. Reuschel was never a dominating pitcher for the Cubs (except in 1977) but he was a solid one when their wasn’t a lot to get excited about at Wrigley Field.
