Another position player pitches!

leave a comment »

In case you missed it, as I almost did, Boston’s Jonathan Van Every pitched 2/3 inning last night in a fruitless game against the Tampa Bay Rays. Van Every replaced Jose Lopez on the mound and Lopez replaced him in right field, making this an even more unique situation. Here’s the video.

Van Every is the third position player in the past month or so to make an appearance on the mound. All three have been lefties.

Playing Van Every position.

I don’t know if I’m the only one keeping track of this weird phenomena, but I am curious as to whether this occurrence usually happens this frequently. Bill James, please contact me as soon as possible…
