Dan Warthen

Daniel Dean Warthen
Batted: Both
Threw: Left
Height: 6'0"
Weight: 200 lb.
Born: December 1, 1952 in Omaha, NE
Drafted: 2nd round 1971 by the Montreal Expos

 

Dan showed some early promise as a big-league pitcher but couldn't overcome control problems and was out of the majors by age 26. Thirty years later he became the Mets pitching coach, a position he held with great success. He's shown here in the same capacity for the 2004 Norfolk Tides. (Side note: I think Dan looks a lot like Doctor Nefario from the movie "Despicable Me.")  A card from his playing days is among those shown below.
