Sure, Shohei Ohtani is evoking images of days of yore as a pitcher/designated hitter for the Angels.
But the baseball ‘Bows are evoking memories of Billy Blanchette with two two-way players. Logan Pouelsen has pitched and been used as a DH this season. For today’s game, he is playing first base.
And last night, Jeremy Yelland was used as a pinch hitter. He drew a walk. Yelland, a promising pitcher, also is a capable position player.
Word also is that first baseman Alex Baeza is an accomplished pitcher, too.
