Thomas Joseph Davey (born September 11, 1973 in Garden City, Michigan) is a former Major League Baseball pitcher who currently plays for the Camden Riversharks. At 6'7", Davey was a tall right-handed relief pitcher for four years with the Toronto Blue Jays (1999), Seattle Mariners (1999), and San Diego Padres (2000–2002). Davey was drafted by the Blue Jays in the 5th round of the 1994 amateur draft. In December 1996, the Baltimore Orioles claimed Davey in the minor league draft, but returned him to the Blue Jays three months later.
Davey has pitched in 114 major league baseball games, all of them as a relief pitcher. He has accumulated a lifetime record of 7–6, finished 27 games, and had 1 save in 136-2/3 innings pitched. His lifetime earned run average was 4.45 for an Adjusted ERA+ of 101. In 11 games for the Padres in 2000, Davey had a 2–1 record with a 0.71 earned run average (Adjusted ERA+ of 600) in 12-2/3 innings. Davey earned a salary of $270,000 in his final season with the Padres.
From 2003 until 2008, Davey pitched in Japan. He played for the Hiroshima Toyo Carp from 2003 until 2005 and for the Orix Buffaloes from 2006 until 2008. He did not pitch in the 2008 season for the Buffaloes because of shoulder surgery. He was released by the Buffaloes on August 11, 2008. He was signed by the Camden Riversharks of the Atlantic League on April 7, 2009.
Davey underwent a fourth shoulder surgery in early 2010, and while he hoped to attempt another comeback, the repair did not heal well enough to allow him to continue pitching. He is unofficially retired from baseball as of October 2011.
