Graeme Lloyd – His New York Mets Career 2003

Graeme lloydA native of Australia, Graeme Lloyd was signed by the Mets as a free agent prior to the 2003 season.  A ten-year veteran Lloyd was used as a lefty specialist out of the bullpen his entire career.  His brief stint with the Mets was no different.  Lloyd appeared in 36 games for the Mets and pitched 35 1/3 innings.  He posted a 1-2 record with 3.31 ERA.  His only victory came on May 11th when he pitched 2 innings of relief against the San Diego Padres.  With the Mets, hopelessly out of the race in July the Mets traded Lloyd to the Kansas City Royals in exchange for minor league pitcher Jeremy Hill.
