Born a righty, Wagner taught himself to throw southpaw and eventually developed into one of the best relievers in baseball. “Billy the Kid” made the All-Star game six times for three different teams (Houston Astros, Philadelphia Phillies, New York Mets) and also helped pitch a combined no-hitter before undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2008. Despite the procedure, Wagner remained one of the top bullpen arms in baseball, saving 37 games in his first full season after coming back from surgery. Wagner finished his career as one of just five relief pitchers to have at least 400 saves in his career.
