Milwaukee Brewers: Top Ten Relievers in Franchise History
1. Dan Plesac
Years as a Brewer: 1986-1992
524.1 IP, 3.30 FIP, 1.23 WHIP
Dan Plesac was drafted in the first round of the 1983 MLB Draft by the Milwaukee Brewers.
Plesac had a phenomenal rookie season in 1986, where he was snubbed from the Rookie of the Year award and an All-Star appearance.
He followed up his rookie season with three straight All-Star selections from 1987-1989. Out of those three seasons, 1987 was the most impressive. He had a 2.92 FIP and 1.08 WHIP in 79.1 innings pitched.
Plesac is the Brewers all-time saves leader with 133 and holds the majority of franchise records in pitching.
Plesac’s consistent success with the Brewers earns him the honor of being Milwaukee’s top reliever of all-time.
