In back to back years (1983 and 1984), the NL Cy Young winner was a pitcher the Indians had traded to the NL just months before.

The latter extracted a franchise cornerstone whose trade would spark a renaissance in the early 1990s. Name EITHER of these ex-Indians hurlers, who won for the Philadelphia Phillies and Chicago Cubs, respectively.
