Wes Ferrell’s first four years as a regular in the Indians rotation saw him win twenty games. He would do so again on two more occasions utilizing a brilliant fastball. He was one of the only pitchers to retire with a winning percentage over .600 and he did so as an innings eating starter. Ferrell also may be one of the games greatest hitting pitchers as he has decent power numbers and a lifetime .280 average.
His numbers began to sharply decline as his arm gave and he was not able to make career numbers that would have ensured him a Cooperstown plaque. If he was alive today, he would likely be fighting for that slot.
