Like Johan Santana, Frank Viola is far better known for his accomplishments in Minnesota, but still brought skills when he was traded to the New York Mets.  In both of his full seasons with the Mets, Viola was an All Star and would finish 3rd in Cy Young Voting in 1990, a year where he was a 20 Game winner and finished 2nd in WAR for Pitchers.
