Rijo

Right-handed pitcher, 1988-1995, 2001-2002. Inducted 2005.

Was named the MVP of the 1990 World Series after posting a 0.59 ERA over two great starts, both for wins, including 8+ innings a 2-hit shutout baseball in Game 4. Injuries shut him down at age 30, but he returned to the Reds six years leader for an additional season and a half.  Ended his career at #5 on the Reds’ all-time career strikeouts leaderboard.
