Following a standout college career at Arizona State, Darrell Jackson only pitched in ten minor league games before getting the call to the Twins in 1978. He split time between the majors and minors over his first two years. In 1980, he broke through with career-best numbers across the board: 172 innings, nine wins, and a 3.87 ERA. Though it's not saying much, he was one of the most promising arms on the Twins staff. Unfortunately, a shoulder injury knocked him out in 1981 and his career was never the same. He tried coming back the next year, but was released in July after going 0-5 with a 6.25 ERA.
