Major League Career

Stanton was drafted on three separate occasions, by the Atlanta Braves, Kansas City Royals, and Texas Rangers before signing with the Houston Astros in 1973. He pitched briefly for the Astros in 1975, then bounced around the minors for the next four years, including a stint in the ill-fated Inter-American League in 1979. He resurfaced in the majors with the Cleveland Indians in 1980, and this time he was there for good, pitching an additional 270 games (all but one in relief) before finishing up with the Chicago White Sox in 1985.
