Edward Cory Kunz (born April 8, 1986) is an American professional baseball pitcher.

Early life and amateur career

Kunz was born in Portland, Oregon.[1] He attended Parkrose High School, where he played football, basketball, and baseball. He was a preseason All-American second-team in 2007 for the Oregon State Beavers.[2]

Professional career

New York Mets

On August 24, 2007, the New York Mets signed Kunz after they selected him 42nd overall in the 2007 Major League Baseball Draft.[3] Less than a year later, on August 3, 2008, he was called up to the Major Leagues from the Double-A affiliate, Binghamton Mets, after having a 2.79 ERA with 27 saves in 44 games.[4]

That day, in his Major League debut, he pitched a scoreless seventh inning.[5] However, two weeks later, after struggling and the Mets' trade for Luis Ayala, he was demoted back to the minors.[6]

On November 5, 2010, Kunz was sent down to the minors to Triple-A Buffalo along with Jesús Feliciano and Raul Valdes. Along with them were Mike Hessman and Omir Santos who then became free-agents after refusing their minor league assignment.

San Diego Padres

On March 29th, 2011, Kunz was traded by the Mets to the Padres at the end of spring training for minor league first baseman Allan Dykstra.[7]

On March 20th, 2013, Kunz was released by the Padres.[8]
