Erickson's career began in 1990, taken by the Rangers in the 31st round of the draft out of Nebraska-Kearney.
Erickson started with the Rangers at rookie Butte and he did so at least a day late as an overbooked flight from Salt Lake held him and teammates back, The Montana Standard wrote.
He then gave up two runs in an inning and two thirds in an early game. He threw an inning and a third in a July game and gave up a run. Overall, he got into 16 games, one start and gave up 12 earned in 20.1 innings of work. He struck out 24.
