Happy Reds birthday, Candy Sierra!


March 27, 1967

Candy Sierra must have made an impression on the Reds when he pitched two scoreless innings against them on June 6, 1988; two days later, they traded Dennis Rasmussen to the Padres to acquire him. He only pitched one more game in the majors, giving up two runs to the Giants in four innings pitched on June 10. Sierra spent the rest of 1988 in Nashville and 1989 in Chattanooga before returning to the Padres organization in 1990.
