#37 / Pitcher / Los Angeles Dodgers
Oct 12, 1970
Happy birthday to Tanyon Sturtze, who turns 39 today.
Sturtze was in the Ranger system in 1997 and 1998, appearing in 9 games for the Rangers in 1997, and generally serving as organizational depth in Oklahoma.
In 2000 and 2001, he had a nice little run for the D-Rays, making him yet another in the long line of pitchers who have left the Rangers and had a brief stint of success elsewhere which made fans rail about how the Rangers gave away YET ANOTHER good pitcher, but then went back to being sub-mediocre for the Rays and the Yankees.
He had 8 appearances in Albuquerque this year, so I guess he's technically not retired yet.
