Right-handed pitcher Pete Smith, a seven-year veteran, was acquired from the Atlanta Braves, prior to the 1994 season in exchange for outfielder Dave Gallagher. Smith made his Mets debut on April 5 against the Chicago Cubs; he allowed 2 earned runs over 7 innings to earn the victory. That pretty much was the highlight of the season for Smith; as he went on to post a 4-10 record with a 5.55 ERA in 21 starts while also leading the Mets in many dubious categories such as losses, earned run allowed and home runs allowed.
The Mets allowed Smith to walk as a free agent following the season and he signed with the Cincinnati Reds.
While with the Mets Smith wore number 32.
Pete Smith also played for the following teams:
Atlanta Braves – 1987-1993
Cincinnati Reds – 1995
San Diego Padres – 1997,1998
Baltimore Orioles – 1998
