Random Former Met - Charlie Puleo

We're going old school here.  Charlie Puleo pitched eight seasons in the bigs from 1981-1984, 1986-1989, playing for the Mets, the Reds and the Braves. In 180 games (76 starts), he recorded a record of 29-39 with a 4.25 ERA in 630 innings.  Of his two career saves, one came with the Mets.  For his career, he struck out 387 batters.

Two of those years were as a Met.  He made his Major League Debut in 1981 with the Mets, pitching in 4 games (1 start) and posted an ERA of 0.00 in 13.1 innings with a 0-0 record.  His only full season on the Mets roster was 1982 where Charlie posted a record of 9-9 with an ERA of 4.47.  He pitched in 36 games (24 starts), recorded one shutout and one save and in 171 innings struck out 98 and walked 90.

He was also part of the trade (along with Lloyd McClendon and Jason Felice) to bring back Tom Seaver from the Reds on December 12, 1982.  He also once surrendered a Home Run to Nolan Ryan in 1987 while a member of the Atlanta Braves.
