There are two former players on the Baltimore Orioles who used to call Queens their home: Logan Verrett and Darren O’Day.
Logan Verrett was selected by the Orioles in the RuleV draft this year in the major league round. The O’s will have to hold on to him the entire season to keep him. His numbers were impressive but the Mets couldn’t protect him with the amount of players they needed to protect this year. Hopefully he has a good career with Baltimore and if they want to send him back, we’ll take him!
Darren O’Day has made a name for himself in Baltimore. The Mets got O’Day from the Angels in 2008 and the Rangers selected him off waivers in 2009. Then Baltimore came in 2011 to select him off waivers. He onl;y pitched 4 games with the Mets allowing 2 runs, none earned over 3.0 innings. The last three years in Bmore he has posted a 2.28, 2.18 and an 1.70 ERA.
This series of articles will take us across every organization in baseball and look for former Mets in the majors and minors to see how they are doing, leading up to a “Former Mets Team” to see how the current Mets stack up with pieces we have all over the place. I am still looking for Mets team members on the Rangers, White Sox and Tigers. If you know any, please let me know!
