The San Francisco Giants traded veteran Al Oliver, 1st baseman/Of. and pitcher Renie Martin to the Philadelphia Phillies for minor pitchers Kelly Downs and George Riley.

Upon Further Review: Baseball Players

The trade brought highly-touted minor league pitcher Kelly Downs to the last place San Francisco Giants. Downs had a solid career in SF, and posted a 12-9, 3.63 ERA in his second major league season, helping the Giants win the NL West. Although he was injured in parts of the 1989 season, the SF Giants won the NL pennant.

Al Oliver lined 2,743 career hits and was one of the top hitters of the 1970s and early 1980s, but, by 1984 he was on the tail-end of his fine career. Al Oliver retired after the 1985 season.

Pitchers Renie Martin and George Riley had shorter MLB career than the above two players. Check out their career stats on Player Section.
