  • Ray Caldwell

    Ray Caldwell spent 12 years in the big leagues, going 134-120 with a 3.22 ERA. The 20-game winner in 1920, his second-to-last season, won at least 15 games three times. From 1913 to 1917, he totaled 64 victories and posted a 2.64 ERA.

    Decent at the dish, Caldwell hit .248 with eight home runs and 114 RBI in 1,164 at-bats, three times surpassing the .280 mark in a season. In 1915, he had four home runs and 20 RBI, and in 1918, he notched 44 hits.

    He never led the league in any major pitching categories, however he paced the loop in the exclusive pitcher fielding percentage column in 1913.

    Statistically, he is similar to Larry Dierker, Frank Lary, Dock Ellis, Joaquin Andujar, Lefty Tyler, Howie Pollet, Cy Falkenberg, Frank Kitson, Mike Boddicker and John Denny. He ranks #479 on the Fan EloRater. He was an All-Star once in the Retrospective All-Star Game project.

    Not a chance, but if they ever have a hall of fame for guys struck by lightning, I'd put him in that.
