Although he is well known as playing for Yankees rivals, the Mets and Red Sox, starting pitcher Bob Ojeda did don the pinstripes for a short time.

Ojeda broke into the league in 1980 with the Red Sox and remained there for six seasons before being traded to the big apple … to play for the Mets. His first season in Flushing was one of his best, going 18-5 with a 2.57 ERA. This line helped the “Amazings” defeat his former team, the Red Sox, in the World Series.

After five years of service for the Mets, Ojeda played for the Dodgers and Indians before returning to New York, this time in a Yankees’ uniform. Ojeda’s time with in the Bronx was brief, starting only two games for the Yankees. Those starts were the last of his career. He later retired as a Yankee.
