And another position player pitches!

If this blog gets noticed for one thing, it’s going to be my record keeping of every position player that pitches in 2008.

Even though I’ve had trouble finding concrete year-to-year information on position players pitching, I feel like we’re well on our way to having an anomaly of a year. And I feel like I’m the only one that’s noticing it…

Last night, Diamondback’s utility infielder Josh Wilson pitched a scoreless ninth inning in a game the Diamondbacks eventually lost to the Reds 13-5. Wilson induced a popup to third baseman Adam Rosales and after walking a batter, inititated a double play.

He's happy to have made it through.

This wasn’t Wilson’s first time on the hill; in 2007 he pitched a shutout frame for the Rays.

Unfortunately, as one of the first people to usually catch these things, there isn’t usually a lot of media unless it comes from And since they’ve got some kind of high-tech super protection, the best I can do is link to the video. Enjoy!

Wilson is the fourth position pitcher to pitch in baseball’s first two months.
