originally drafted by the pirates, honeycutt made his debut for the mariners during their inagural 1977 season. he was 26-41 in his 4 years in seattle with a 4.22 era. in his first season with the rangers, he posted the first winning record of his career (11-6) with a 3.31 era. his best season (with the rangers or otherwise) was his 1983 season wherein he was 14-8 with a league leading 2.42 era. that was the year that he was traded to the dodgers in mid-august, and had the honor of appearing on cards in the 1984 set as both a dodger and a ranger.

in all, honeycutt spent parts of 21 seasons in the major leagues and amassed over 100 wins and 1000 strikeouts. he's currently the dodgers' pitching coach.
