Player Profile: Doug Brocail

I have eight cards of Doug Brocail. This one is from 1993 Donruss.

Playing career: Reliever Doug Brocail pitched for the Padres, Astros and Tigers from 1992 to 2000, at which point he suffered an elbow injury that knocked him out of the major leagues for three years. An initial misdiagnosis of the injury led Brocail to unsuccessfully sue the Tigers. He made a comeback with the Rangers in 2004 and stayed in the majors through the 2009 season. Overall in 626 major league games he was 52-48 with nine saves and an ERA of 4.00.

Where he is now: Special Assistant to the General Manager & Special Pitching Advisor for the Houston Astros.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is tenth when you type Doug Bro, behind Doug Brown Lazard, a banker who used to be at Lazard. There do not appear to be any other prominent Doug Brocails.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Greg Brock.
