With the exception of the 1993 season where he was mostly used as a Middle Reliever, Mark Gubicza was a Starting Pitcher for the Royals for thirteen seasons.  Over that time Gubicza was used either as the team ace, the number five starter and all spots in between which was enough for him to accrue 133 wins as a Royal.

Gubicza’s time as the team’s best Starting Pitcher was in the late 80’s where in 1988 he would finish 3rd in Cy Young voting while leading the league in bWAR for Pitchers. It would also be his first and only 20 Win Season.  1989 was also a very good year as he would go to his second All Star Game and finished second in bWAR for Pitchers.  Also worthy noting is that Gubicza would lead the AL in HR/9 three times.  The only other Pitcher to do that is Walter Johnson.
