 Biographical Information
Wes Stock began his pro career by leading the 1956 Northern League in winning percentage (.700, 14-6) and strikeouts (182 in 181 IP). He then missed the next two years due to military service but never pitched below AAA after 1956. He spent parts of nine seasons in the majors and, aside from one start for the 1961 Baltimore Orioles against the Washington Senators on July 6th, worked entirely out of the bullpen. He ended his career with a 27-13 mark and a 3.60 ERA.
After retiring, Stock became a coach with the Kansas City A's in 1967. He spent 1968 and 1969 as a minor league pitching instructor for the New York Mets, then was pitching coach for the Milwaukee Brewers (1970-1972), Oakland A's (1973-1976), Seattle Mariners (1977-1981), and A's again (1984-1986).
