Bill Swift was a Pittsburgh Pirate for most of his career, first appearing in 1932, where he went 14-10 as a rookie and led the NL in BB/9 (1.1).
Swift was never a permanent starter in his career, and was used wherever needed. Winning 70 Games against 57 Losses in his first five years, Swift at least 200 Innings in all of those years, complied either as a starter or reliever, and was one of the better Pitchers in not allowing Walks.
He would be moved to more of a bullpen role in his later three years with the Pirates and was traded to Boston after. Swift slid into the final spot on this list because he was a competent batter, hitting .230 with 132 Hits for Pittsburgh. He had a 91-79 Record with a 3.57 ERA on the mound.
