Looking for a left-handed power bat off the bench the Mets acquired Jon Nunnally from the Boston Red Sox in exchange for Jermaine Allensworth prior to the 2000 season. At the time Nunnally was a journeyman outfielder who at times showed potential but could never really get his career off the ground. He made his Met debut on Opening Day 2000 where he went 1 for 2. Unfortunately, from that point Nunnally struggled and could never find any consistency at the plate. With his average on the interstate at .189 the Mets sold his contract to the Orix Buffaloes of the Japanese League on June 8th. Nunnally returned to the states in 2001 but never made it back to the Majors as he bounced around the minors before finally retiring after the 2006 season.
In 48 games for the Mets Nunnally batted .189 with 2 home runs and 6 RBIs.
While with the Mets Nunnally wore number 26.
Jon Nunnally also played for the following teams:
Kansas City Royals – 1995-1997
Cincinnati Reds – 1997,1998
Boston Red Sox – 1999
