Remember Pete Walker? I didn’t have any particular reason to think about him until I got this signed photo of Walker from my friend Bart yesterday.
Drafted by the Mets in 1990, Walker had a cup of coffee in New York in 1995 before getting shipped off to San Diego in a spring training deal the next year.
Walker appeared in 144 major league games over eight years, working as a starter and a reliever. Most of those appearances came as a Toronto Blue Jay from 2002-2006, though he did pitch in 16 games for the Mets over three separate stints with the team.
Walker last pitched in 2007. He’s now the pitching coach for the New Hampshire Fisher Cats, the Double-A affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays.
