Michael Lorenzen, relief pitcher for the Reds I think.
Brenden McKay from Tampa Bay. Starting pitcher/DH/firstbaseman. Made his debut late august.

There's probably a bunch more that swing both ways but haven't emerged from the closet yet. :)

This thread was great till Rossi posted that AA ruined it.

The rule for "limitations on when position players can pitch" seems unnecessary. It's standard practice to not see a position payer pitching, unless the team is getting blown out (down by 6 or more runs) or in extra innings.

I can't think of an exact scenario, right now, but I'm wondering if it was added to prevent someone from pulling a Belicheck and finding a loophole in the new pitching rules for 2-way players and 3-batter minimums.

I'm thinking the 3 batter minimum rule might lead to an entire bullpen filled with nothing but "closers". So I expect some ding-dong online writer to soon pen a column about how the 1990 Reds "Nasty Boys" (Dibble, Myers, Charlton and arguably a few more) were prophetic.
