Mike Smith (2000s pitcher)

Michael Anthony "Mike" Smith (born September 19, 1977 in ) is a pitcher in Major League Baseball. He was signed by the Toronto Blue Jays in the 5th round of the 2000 amateur draft at the end of his college career at the University of Richmond. He played in 14 games for the Blue Jays in 2002, starting six and posting an ERA of 6.62. The Minnesota Twins acquired Smith from the Philadelphia Phillies during the 2005-2006 offseason, but he was not on the Twins' 40-man roster. However, inconsistent pitching from Scott Baker and Boof Bonser and shoulder problems for Brad Radke prompted the Twins to call him up to the major leagues on August 2, 2006.
