He then missed play time due to a shoulder injury, but in a freak accident of being shocked from his truck’s electrical system, the pain disappeared. After returning to the game in 1999, he pitched 143 strikeouts and had 13 wins for a club record high.
In 2000, he was chosen to represent the US in the Olympics, pitching in the semi-finals against South Korea and winning a gold medal.
