1986 Topps Giants - Part 5 (pitchers)

Atlee Hammaker (#223) didn't pitch for the Giants in 1986. He was out all season because of a shoulder problem, surgery on both knees, and a debilitating virus. Here is a "where are they now" article from 2005.

Mark Davis (#138) was 5-7 with four saves and an ERA of 2.99 in 67 games (2 starts). Davis was the first player selected in the 1979 draft. Mark started his career with the Philadelphia Phillies in 1980, went to the Giants in 1983, and went to the San Diego Padres as part of the big trade they made on July 5, 1987. Davis ended up pitching in 15 seasons from 1980-1997.

Jeff Robinson (#93T) was 6-3 with eight saves and a 3.36 ERA in 64 games (1 start) in 1986. He pitched for the Giants from 1984-1987 and finished his major league career in 1992.

Roger Mason (#70T) was 3-4 with a 4.80 ERA in 11 starts in 1986. He pitched for the Giants from 1985-1987 and ended up pitching in the majors from 1984-1994.

Mike LaCoss (#57T) was 10 -13 with a 3.57 ERA in 37 games (31 starts) in 1986. After pitching for three other teams, Mike had most of his success with the Giants. He pitched for the Giants from 1986 until his release on July 3, 1991. Mike tried to pitch in the minors for Montreal's AAA Indianapolis club in 1992 but he hung 'em up after seven games.

Juan Berenguer (#9T) was 2-3 with four saves and a 2.70 ERA in 46 games (4 starts). This (1986) was the only season Juan pitched for the Giants.
