Greg Cadaret was signed as an 11th round pick in the 1983 amateur draft by the Oakland A's and scout Frank Franchi. He was then one of three players traded to the New York Yankees on June 21, 1989, in return for superstar Rickey Henderson; the other players involved were Eric Plunk and Luis Polonia. Mainly a relief pitcher with a stout fastball, he struggled with control problems most of his career, and never was more than a marginal pitcher in the big leagues.
Cadaret played for 8 different teams in a span of 10 years which included a stint with the Kansas City Royals that lasted only 15 innings. Upon giving up 7 walks and one hit batter against only 2 strikeouts, Greg was released by Kansas City after only 13 appearances. This however would not be his shortest stint with a major league team. In 1998, Greg pitched just 7 2/3 innings for the Texas Rangers before ending his career. He grew up and and attended school in the small town of Stanton, Michigan.
Cadaret was hired as head coach at Simpson University in April 2014.
