Milacki was superb in his 1988 trial, going 2-0 with a 0.72 ERA in three starts, including a shutout. He then went 14-12 with a 3.74 ERA in his first full season in 1989. But Milacki's promise never panned out; his ERA shot up suddenly to 5.84 in 1992, and he never again anchored a major-league starting rotation.
