Today In Brewer History: Bye Bye Bosio

Author's personal collection.

The longtime Brewer became a free agent on this day in 1992.

Chris Bosio was the Brewers' second round pick in the 1982 secondary draft and a fixture in the Milwaukee rotation for most of his seven years with the Crew, but that all came to an end on this day in 1992 when he officially became a free agent.

Bosio appeared in 212 games over seven seasons as a Brewer and posted a 3.76 ERA. His best season was 1989, when he pitched a career-high 234.2 innings and had a career-best 2.95 ERA, yet somehow was not listed on a single ballot for the AL Cy Young. Bosio was never an All Star or Cy Young candidate, but he is still one of the top ten Brewers of all time in each of these categories:

Stat # Rank
Strikeouts 749 6th
Innings pitched 1190 7th
Wins 67 8th
Starts 163 8th
Complete games 32 9th

Bosio went on to sign with the Mariners and pitched four more seasons in the majors.
