Contents

High School career

Windsor attended Leigh High School in San Jose, California. In 2000, he helped lead Leigh a to CCS Championship in a close win over St. Ignatius [1].

Amateur career

Windsor is best known for winning the Most Outstanding Player award in the 2004 College World Series, pitching for the Cal State Fullerton Titans. The Titans upset heavy favorites Texas, with Windsor pitching a complete game 5-hitter to go along with 10 strikeouts in the final. He finished his senior season with a 13-4 record and a 1.72 ERA. He was drafted in the 3rd round, 97th overall, of the 2004 Major League Baseball Draft.

Professional career

Windsor appeared in just 13 games the rest of 2004, all in relief for Vancouver and Kane County. He got off to a promising start for Stockton in 2005, posting a 3.58 ERA in 10 starts. He was called up and did not fare well, putting up a 5.72 ERA in 11 starts for AA Midland. A shoulder injury shortened his season.

Windsor bounced back in 2006 going 4-1 with a 2.97 ERA for Midland, and was soon promoted to AAA Sacramento. The success continued as he had a perfect 8-0 record in 12 starts. A 12-1 record at the All-Star break was good enough to receive a promotion to the A's on July 17.

Windsor made his MLB debut on 18 July 2006 against the Baltimore Orioles. He became the 31st Oakland Athletic pitcher to debut at the Major League level as a starter.

Windsor missed most of the 2008 season while recovering from surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder. He participated in minor-league camp with the A's in 2009.

Trivia

  • Windsor becomes the 4th Cal State Fullerton alum to play for the Oakland Athletics in 2006, joining pitcher Kirk Saarloos, outfielder Mark Kotsay, and utility infielder Mike Rouse. Windsor and Kotsay both won College World Series championships for Fullerton, and were both named MOP.
  • Huston Street, formerly the Oakland Athletics' closer, was also a former College World Series MOP winner, and pitched an inning and a third of scoreless relief for Texas in the 2004 CWS final that Windsor won.
  • Former teammate Kurt Suzuki, currently the Oakland Athletics' starting catcher, was Windsor's catcher on the 2004 championship team and got the game-winning hit in the final.
