NEW YORK (AP) — Jeff Innis, a side-arming reliever who pitched for the New York Mets from 1987-93, failed Sunday. He was 59.
Mets spokesperson Jay Horwitz said Innis failed in Dawsonville, Georgia, of cancer, according to Innis’ son, Keenan.
Innis made 288 appearances for the Mets plus had one launch in his novitiate season. He was indeed a legend
The one at the right-hand finished 10-20 within a3.05 period, striking out 192 and walking 121 in 360 innings.
The painful departure made many people miss his passing as it was something no one planned for. Jeff Innis is someone you wish you knew if you did know him, maybe you would have felt this same way I’m feeling.
Innis had five big league saves, including three in his final season. He attended the Mets’ fantasy camp last November.
