After toiling in the Kansas City Royals minor league system for five years the Mets acquired right-handed pitcher Mike Fyhrie in 1996. After spending the 1996 season with the Norfolk Tides, the Mets Triple A affiliate, where he posted a 15-6 record with a 3.04 ERA as a starter Mike Fyhrie was promoted to the big club as a September call up. He made his Major League debut on September 14th pitching two innings of relief against the Atlanta Braves allowing two hits and one run. He wouldn’t pitch again until September 29th, the last game of the season, against the Phillies. He suffered the loss pitching just 1/3 of an inning while allowing two hits and three runs. In his two appearances with the Mets he posted a 0-1 record with 15.43 ERA in just 2 1/3 innings.
Following the season the Mets sold his contract to the Chiba Lotte Marines of the Japanese Pacific League. After pitching one year in Japan he returned to the Mets as a free agent and spent a disappointing 1998 season with the Norfolk Tides posting a 3 and 7 record with 6.64 ERA. The Mets chose not to retain him following the season and he signed with the Anaheim Angels.
While with the Mets Fyhrie wore number 40.
