Biographical Information[edit]

Mike McCoy played four seasons in the majors, the first with the Colorado Rockies in 2009 and the other three with the Toronto Blue Jays from 2010 to 2012. He was a true utility player with appearances at all positions except for catcher and first base; he even was used once as pitcher by the Blue Jays in 2011, retiring al three batters he faced. He wasn't much of a hitter, finishing at .190 in 170 games with 3 homers and 20 RBIs; in fact, he never managed to go over the Mendoza Line in any of his four seasons.

He was originally drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals in the 34th round of the 2002 amateur draft out of the University of San Diego, then was successively traded to the Baltimore Orioles and to the Rockies before being picked up on waivers by the Blue Jays. He continued playing in the minors until 2015, for a total of 14 seasons and over 1,300 games. He was also valued for his great versatility in the minors and played a couple of seasons of winter ball in the Mexican Pacific League.

He became a coach with the Lake Elsinore Storm in 2016 and AZL Padres in 2017. He then became a manager with the Tri-City Dust Devils in 2018. In 2024, he was named assistant hitting coach with the San Diego Padres.
