My latest edition of This Week in Minor League History is up at Baseball Prospectus, and it features a couple of former Padres. On May 26, 1984, Juan Eichelberger, then with the Milwaukee Brewers organization, threw a no-hitter for Vancouver. Eichelberger won 20 games for the Padres from 1978 to 1982. His shining moment came on June 6, 1982, against the Cubs, when he finished a Scot Thompson single shy of a big-league no-no.
The other ex-Padre was someone I’d not heard of before researching the article. Right-hander Jack Salveson played for the Pacific Coast League Padres in 1952 and 1953. On May 25, 1952, he won his 200th PCL game. Salveson, then 38 years old, went 10-10 with a 3.80 ERA for the Padres in ’52. He appeared in a handful of games for San Diego and Oakland the following year before retiring.
