compiled from staff, wire and MLB reports

Jose Lima played 13 years in the major leagues with Detroit, Houston, Kansas City, the Los Angeles Dodgers and the New York Mets.

The All-Star pitcher died on Sunday at the age of 37, according to the Los Angeles Dodgers front office.

Lima, who pitched the Dodgers to their first playoff win in 16 years back in 2004, was in full cardiac arrest when paramedics arrived at his Pasadena home early on Sunday morning, police said in a media statement. He was pronounced dead at Huntington Memorial Hospital.

Lima went 13-5 with a 4.07 ERA in 2004 after making the Dodgers as a non-roster invitee to spring training.

In the National League division series, Lima pitched a five-hit shutout against the St. Louis Cardinals in front of a sellout crowd at Dodger Stadium. It was the Dodgers first postseason win since game five of the 1988 World Series.

In 2005, when the Kansas City Royals ended a 19-game losing streak, Lima broke out bottles of Dom Perignon to celebrate and offered a $1,ooo to the player who best helped the team win the day.

Jose Lima revived his career several times, bouncing back and forth between the independent league and the minors. The Dominican Republic native was 89-102 overall with a 5.26 ERA in 348 games in the majors with his last appearance a four-game stint with the New York Mets in 2006.
