Professional career[edit]

Easley was drafted by the New York Yankees in the 20th round of the 1981 amateur draft.[1] He was traded to the Pittsburgh Pirates in November 1986 along with Brian Fisher and Doug Drabek for Pat Clements, Cecilio Guante and Rick Rhoden.

Easley made his MLB debut in April 1987 against the New York Mets. He played 17 games for the Pirates in 1987 before being released in November. Easley was re-signed as a free agent the next month, but spent the 1988 season with the minor league Buffalo Bisons. He appeared in 10 games for the Pirates in the 1989 season, but was released a second and final time in November 1989. He spent the rest of his career in the minor leagues and retired in 1991.

Easley played for several minor league teams throughout his career. In addition to the Buffalo Bisons, Easley also played for the Albany-Colonie Yankees (now the Albany A's), the Vancouver Canadians, the Denver Zephyrs (now the New Orleans Zephyrs), the Reno Silver Sox and ultimately finished his career with the Canton/Akron Indians (now the Akron Aeros).
