Justin Craig Duchscherer is a right-handed Major League Baseball starting pitcher for the Oakland Athletics . Previously, he played with the Texas Rangers .

Duchscherer was selected by the Boston Red Sox in the 8th round of the 1996 MLB Draft out of Coronado High School in Lubbock, Texas. His high-80's fastball made him one of the hardest throwers in the area, but his velocity quickly became average as he entered the minor leagues. In 1998, he went 7-12 with a 4.79 ERA in 30 appearances for Single-A Michigan. As Duchscherer continued to struggle in the low levels of the minor leagues, he was beginning to look more like a roster filler than a big-league prospect. But in 2001, he turned his career around. He went 6-3 with a 2.44 ERA in 12 starts for Class AA Trenton before being traded to the Texas Rangers for catcher Doug Mirabelli. He finished the year pitching well with the Texas organization, going 4-0 for Class AA Tulsa and sporting a 2.84 ERA after his call-up to Triple-A Oklahoma. He received his first major-league call-up in 2001, a very forgettable one. He went 1-1 with a 12.27 ERA for the Rangers.
