A throw-in to the Giants in the deal that sent Bill Madlock
to the Pirates, Breining
earned a spot in the San Francisco bullpen with a 2.54 ERA in 1981. He became a starter
late the next season and finished 11-6. After an 11-12 year in '83, he was traded
to the Expos for Al Oliver
but reported with a career-ending rotator cuff injury.
The Giants sent Andy McGaffigan
to Montreal as a replacement.
