Spencer was drafted out of the University of Washington, where he played college baseball for the Huskies from 1994–1995,[1] by his hometown Seattle Mariners in the 40th round of the 1996 Major League Baseball Draft. He made his major league debut with the Mariners on May 6, 1999, pitching 1/3 of an inning and giving up 2 earned runs against the Cleveland Indians. On August 10, 2000, Spencer was announced as the first of two PTBNLs traded to the Montreal Expos for Chris Widger. In 8 games for Montreal, he struck out 6 and had an ERA of 5.40. The Expos released him on July 19, 2002. On July 25, 2003, Spencer signed a minor league contract with the Baltimore Orioles and pitched in the minors for them until his retirement after the 2004 season.
