Pitching in: Mets hurler Taijuan Walker’s once UES rental up for sale

A palatial Upper East Side penthouse that, until recently, housed Mets star pitcher Taijuan Walker is on the market for $14.2 million.

It had been asking $39,000 a month when Walker was renting it. The penthouse asking price is just a tad more than the $14.1 million the seller, artificial intelligence expert Adrian Weller — a former fixed income pro at Goldman Sachs, Salomon Brothers and Citadel — paid for it back in 2008, according to property records.

The penthouse is in a seven-story, limestone-clad boutique condo converted from a former garage.

The spread, at 157 E. 84th St, is 6,700 square feet.

It comes with five bedrooms and 6½ bathrooms. The condo also features several woodburning fireplaces and close to 3,000 square feet of outdoor space.

A private, key-locked elevator landing opens to an entry and lounge area that leads to a great room with a fireplace and floor-to-ceiling windows.
