1978 Topps Baseball #225 - Don Gullett

  • Don Gullett was on the disabled list until early June 1978. Don had a rough start on June 4 and then won four of his next five starts. It looked like Gullett was back from his arm woes. Gullett lost his next two starts and that was it for his career. Rotator cuff problems caused Don to miss the rest of the 1978 season. 
  • Don had rotator cuff surgery in September 1978. Gullett tried to recover in 1979 and 1980, but he couldn't make it back. Don was released in late 1980.
  • 1978 Stats: 4-2, 3.63 ERA in 8 starts
  • 1978 Highlights:
    • June 15 - Got his first win of the season when he pitched six scoreless innings against the Seattle Mariners. The Yankees won 5-2.
    • June 30 - Had a complete game victory for his last major league win. The Yankees beat the Detroit Tigers 10-2.
