Don Sutton Died

Don Sutton passed away in his sleep overnight last night. He was 75. He had a long battle with cancer. He’s the 9th Hall of Famer to die in the last 12 months.

He played 23 years in the majors, 16 with the Dodgers. He went 324-256 for his career with a 3.26 ERA and 3574 strikeouts. The most reman aspect of his career was his durability. He never was on the disabled list, never once missed a scheduled start. His 756 starts are third in ML history. The two pitchers with more: Cy Young and Nolan Ryan.
