[edit] Biographical Information

Randy Jones picked up the save for the National League in the 1975 All-Star Game, then went on to start and win the 1976 All-Star Game. He came into the 1976 All-Star Game with a record of 16-3, an All-Star break win total that no one has equaled since. Those were his only two All-Star appearances.

His lifetime record of 100-123 places him as the only Cy Young Award winner amongst pitchers who were starters with a lifetime losing record (as of 2010). He won the award in 1976 when he went 22-14 with 25 complete games.

After winning 20 games in back-to-back season in 1975 and 1976, a nerve injury in his pitching arm consequently led to surgery after the 1976 season and Jones was unable to recover up to the level of those seasons. He still was a good pitcher, though, as he went 13-14 with a 2.88 ERA in 1978, then pitched 263 innings in 1979.

After retiring, Jones worked with young pitchers, among them, future Cy Young Award winner Barry Zito.

His #35 has since been retired by the San Diego Padres.
