The Mets initially drafted Brian Daubach in the 17th round of the 1990 amateur draft. Daubach would spend seven years in the Mets minor league system but never sniffed the majors. He left in 1996 as a free agent and signed with the Florida Marlins. After playing seven seasons for the Marlins, Red Sox and White Sox Daubach returned to the Mets organization in 2005 as a free agent.
Daubach started the 2005 season with the Norfolk Tides, the Mets top minor league club before being called up in June. He made his Met debut on June 16 against the Oakland A’s. He started the game at first base and went 0-1 with three walks. Daubach would appear in 15 games for the Mets and was used as a first baseman and pinch hitter. He hit just .120 with 1 home run and 3 RBIs and was sent back down to the minors in the middle of July. His only home run came as a pinch hitter against the Phillies on June 21.
Daubach finished out the season in the minors and signed with the St Louis Cardinals in the off-season.
While with the Mets Daubach wore number 13.
