With two weeks left in the 1977 season the Mets were in desperate need of starting pitching and picked up Doc Medich off waivers from the Seattle Mariners. The right-handed pitcher would make one start for the Mets on September 29 against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Medich pitched effectively for seven innings allowing 3 runs and 6 hits. But it was not enough as the Mets managed only 2 runs and Medich suffered the loss.
Medich signed with the Texas Rangers following the season ending his brief Mets career.
