#364 Trevor Wilson

About the Front: Trevor Wilson's five o'clock shadow says, "My name may be Trevor, but don't be fooled. I am a very dangerous man.".

About the Back: That June 7, 1992 two-hitter was the last shutout of Wilson's career. In the ninth inning, he struck out Jeff Bagwell, Eric Anthony, and Rafael Ramirez on three pitches each, making him the 27th pitcher in MLB history to record an "immaculate inning".

Triple Play:

1. On June 13, 1990, he took a no-hitter into the ninth inning but had it spoiled by a Mike Pagliarulo leadoff single. Wilson retired the next three Padres batters to seal the shutout.

2. Injuries cost Trevor three full seasons (1994, 1996, and 1997) before he closed out his career with a 15-game stint out of the Angels bullpen in 1998.

3. Wilson has been a minor league coach for the Giants and Angels for more than a decade.

11-Year-Old Kevin Says: I might have assumed that he was related to a fellow lefty of his era, ex-Dodgers pitcher Steve Wilson.

Bill James Said: "Went on the DL three times with tendonitis and inflammation in his throwing shoulder, and pitched only 20 innings after the All-Star break."

On This Date in 1993: January 27. Legendary pro wrestler and actor Andre the Giant (born Andre Roussimoff) dies of congestive heart failure at age 46.
