100 Greatest Phillies: 88 – Tommy Greene

Tommy Greene
Starting Pitcher
1990-1995

Career w/Phillies:
580.1 IP / 36-22 / 4.01 ERA / 429 K

The player to be named later in the 1990 Dale Murphy trade, Greene had two spectacular seasons with the Phillies, amongst a few other mostly-hurt seasons. He arrived in 1990 and performed okay, but came alive in an inspired 1991, going 13-7 with a 3.38 ERA, throwing a no-hitter in Montreal. After a injury-hampered 1992, Greene returned to lead the 1993 staff with a 16-4 record and 3.42 ERA, finishing sixth in Cy Young voting. Sadly, he never lived up to his 1993 form again because of injuries, and retired in 1997 at age 30.

Comment: Should Greene be on the list? I say so, because he anchored the 1993 rotation while really having a nice career with the Phils. Sure, he got hurt a lot, but when he pitched, he was pretty good.
