Bill Pulsipher named as pitching coach of Winnipeg Goldeyes

Former New York Mets pitcher, Bill Pulsipher has been named the pitching coach for the Winnipeg Goldeyes of the American Association.

Pulsipher was originally drafted by the New York Mets in the 2nd round (65th overall) of the 1991 MLB Amateur Draft

Pulsipher and fellow teammates Paul Wilson and Jason Isringhausen dominated the minor leagues in the early 1990's and were on the fast track to the major leagues. Their dominance earned them the nickname "Generation K."

In 1995, Pulsipher got called up to the major leagues at the age of 21, but struggled going 5-7 with a 3.98 ERA. The Mets sent him back down to the minors the following season.

Pulsipher wouldn't make it back to the big leagues until 1998, and he continued to struggle. He would be eventually traded to the Brewers for Luis Lopez.

From 1998-2003, he bounced around from seven different organizations. All of which hoping he would fulfill the promise seen earlier in his career.

In 2004, he came to the Long Island Ducks and pitched 18 games going 9-5 with a 3.67 ERA. He was eventually signed by the Mariners organization toward the end of season.

In 2005, he came back to the Ducks but was eventually signed by the Cardinals organization. Later that season he'd pitch 5 games in the major leagues for the St. Louis Cardinals.

He returned to the Ducks for the 2006 and 2007 seasons where he posted a 6-4 record.

In 2009, he signed with Winnipeg Goldeyes and was 4-2 with a 3.35 ERA in 40.1 innings pitched.

Pulsipher has been a member of the Somerset Patriots for the last two seasons.
