Biographical Information[edit]

Relief pitcher Conor Mullee began his professional career in 2010. Selected by the New York Yankees, was the last pick taken in the 24th round of the 2010 amateur draft.

He had a 1.64 ERA in 14 games for the GCL Yankees in 2010, but then missed 2011 to Tommy John surgery. Back in 2012, he had a 3.60 ERA in six games for the Staten Island Yankees before suffering an avulsion fracture. In Mullee's words, "the ligament just kind of tore the bone off." After treatment for the fracture did not work and a new method had to be tried, he missed all of 2013 before returning in 2014 to post a 1.40 ERA in 21 games between Staten Island and the Charleston RiverDogs. In 2015, he was 4-4 with a 2.91 mark in 36 games between the Tampa Yankees, Trenton Thunder and Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders. He had a 0.00 ERA in two games in his first taste of Triple-A.

After starting 2016 by going 3-0 with a 1.42 ERA with 25 strikeouts in 19 innings between Trenton and Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, he was promoted to the majors and made his debut on May 16th at 28 years old. Facing the Arizona Diamondbacks in what would be a 12-2 Arizona blowout, he allowed three walks and a run in relief of Nick Goody, who himself relieved starter Chad Green, who had also made his debut that day. On the positive side, Mullee did strike out the dangerous Paul Goldschmidt. He was optioned back to the minors on May 17th.

He pitched 13 games in the minors in 2017 and has not pitched professionally since.
