The Mets signed right-handed pitcher Barry Jones following his release from the Philadelphia Phillies on August 14, 1992. His Mets debut on August 18 against the Los Angeles Dodgers was inauspicious to say the least; he gave up two runs in just 1/3 of an inning. Jones would finish out the season pitching out of the Mets bullpen appearing in 17 games. He managed to win 2 games and save another despite posting an astronomical 9.39 ERA in 15 1/3 innings. His two victories came in back to back appearances against the Cincinnati Reds.
Following the season Barry Jones signed as a free agent with the Chicago White Sox.
While with the Mets Jones wore number 46.
Barry Jones also played for the following teams:
Pittsburgh Pirates – 1986-1988
Chicago White Sox – 1988-1990, 1993
Montreal Expos – 1991
Philadelphia Phillies – 1992
