    Josh Towers' ERA is 9.11 through 54.1 innings. He has had 12 starts and is now on his second stint in the minors. He is 1-9.

    PS Nolan Ryan's career ERA was 3.19.

    Elarton

    How did he keep getting thrown out there? The rest of the staff must have been brutal!! You guys have come up with some great examples.
    Camilo Pascual had a few yeras like this before he became a very good pitcher.

    1955 43 games,129 Innings 2-12 6.14 E.R.A.
    1956 39 games,188.2 Innings 6-18 5.87 E.R.A.
    These are almost good compared to some above!

    Eric Milton had the 5th lowest ERA ever for a pitcher who started at least 34 games last year.

    This topic was in Baseball Digest a few months ago.

    A more recent player to come to mind with a high ERA is Hideo Nomo. In 2004 his ERA was 8.24 in 84.0 innings. In 2005 he had a 7.24 ERA in 100.7 innings. Another player from Tampa Bay, Dewon Brazelton had a 7.61 ERA in 71.0 innings last year. Ouch, that hurts for the D-rays.

    Quite a List. I looked them up. You're right! I didn't know that Ross Grimsley's father played in the majors. One that might be left off is my all-time favorite player,Del Unser. His one year(72') in Cleveland wasn't......very good.They shipped him out in a hurry. He was better than these guys though! I do have a soft spot for Gustavo Gil though because he was a Pilot!

The first,In 1930,he was 3-4 with a 7.97 In 24 games and 10 starts,he pitched 84.2 Innings.His numbers were awful! In 1931,he was 2-3 with a7.24. He pitched in 12 games,4 starts and 41 Innings. He was Ok for a few years after that. Amazing that he got another shot. How do you know about this Guy??!!
    They used to have a thing on the radio every once in a while about worst Indian stiffs, so I started researching

    Worst E.R.A.'s

    How about single season Starters? I guess this could be a seperate thread. Some come to mind:

    1) Bobo Newsome 1938 Browns 20-16 5.08 E.R.A.
    2) Rick Helling 1998 Rangers 20-7 4.41
    3) Jim Merritt 1970 Reds 20-12 4.08
    4) Dan Spillner 1980 Indians 16-11 5.29
    5) Len Barker 1980 Indians 19-12 4.17

    These are,of course,before this crazy era of 4.25 E.R.A.s being respectable!

    I forgot about Joe Cleary. China's Shuai Li had a 40.50 ERA in 2/3 innings during a World Baseball Classic game last weekend.
