Player Profile: Fernando Arroyo

I have five cards of Fernando Arroyo. This one is from 1982 Topps.

Playing career: Fernando Arroyo pitched for the Tigers, Twins and A’s from 1975 to 1986, going 24-37 with a 4.44 ERA. A detailed description of his career can be found at Project Baseball 1976.

My memories: He’s before my time. Only know him from his cards.

Where he is now: He coached for many years in the minor leagues as well as in Korea. He is now retired.

Google Autocomplete results: He is sixth when you type Fernando Ar, between Fernando Araujo, a Colombian politician, and Fernando Arruda, a classical saxophonist. Another prominent Fernando Arroyo is a Mexican actor.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Randy Asadoor.
