Career highlights and awards

Clayton Lee Condrey (born November 19, 1975 in Beaumont, Texas) is a relief pitcher for the Minnesota Twins. Condrey features 5 pitches: a sinker, cutter, curveball, changeup, and a four-seam fastball.

Condrey pitched with the San Diego Padres in the 2002 and 2003 seasons before coming to the Phillies in the offseason. In the Padres organization as a starter, Clay started 43 games between the Triple-A Portland Beavers and the major leagues, giving up 118 earned runs in 257.1 innings (ERA of 4.13).

The right-handed pitcher played at Navasota High School and McNeese State University. The New York Yankees selected Condrey in the 94th round, with selection No. 1,728 of the 2006 Major League Baseball Draft out of Angelina (Texas) Junior College. Condrey was the very last player selected in the 1996 Draft. [1] Condrey would eventually sign with the San Diego Padres in 1998. He was signed by then-Padres scout Theo Epstein.

Condrey pitched his entire 2004 season for the Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Red Barons of the International League, where he led the team in starts and innings pitched (28 ST, 162 IP), compiling an ERA of 5.50. His 2005 campaign dropped slightly in appearances, where he appeared in only 24 starts (132.1 IP), but he subsequently lowered his ERA to 4.15. After being converted to relief, he was off to a strong start in 2006 as well, allowing only 3 earned runs in eight appearances, but was called up to the Phillies in May.

Condrey began the 2007 season on the Phillies' active roster, but on April 14, 2007, Condrey was designated for assignment by the Phillies to make room on the roster for starting pitcher Freddy Garcia, who had been on the DL since the end of spring training. Condrey would be designated for assignment three other times, up until August 3, 2007, when he was recalled from Triple-A Ottawa for his fifth stint of the season with the Phillies.

In 2008, Condrey made the Phillies' Opening Day squad and pitched well in middle-relief. In accordance with one of the oddities of the baseball rulebook, he earned a save in a 12–2 Phillies victory over the Nationals on May 21 by pitching three innings in relief of Jamie Moyer and not surrendering the lead, though he entered the game with the Phillies leading by twelve runs.

On December 12, 2009, Condrey was non-tendered by the Phillies and became a free agent.

On January 6, 2010, Condrey signed a 1 year deal with the Minnesota Twins.[2]
