Ron Darling and Mike Thomas for Tim Burke
|Date: July 15, 1991|
|Team: Montreal Expos|
|Sent: Ron Darling, Mike Thomas|
|Received: Tim Burke|
The Mets and Expos made a trade of pitchers during the 1991 season. Ron Darling and Mike Thomas were sent to the Montreal team in exchange for reliever Tim Burke. Darling had been a solid starter for the Mets during the team's most successful period in its history, which included a World Championship in 1986. Thomas was at the A-level in the minor leagues. Burke was an All-Star closer for the Expos with seven years of major league experience.
Darling had two losses in three games pitched for the Expos before he was dealt to the Athletics on July 31. Thomas never appeared in a game with the Montreal team.
