It is becoming more and more frequent these days, but it’s still fun any time a position player takes the mound. Kevin Plawecki did just that in the ninth inning Tuesday, when the Cincinnati Reds were well on their way to a 14-4 shellacking of the New York Mets.

The final line for Plawecki, usually a catcher for the Mets, was one inning, one hit, no earned runs. Given that he had already pitched two innings this year, allowing four earned runs, that lowered his ERA on the season to 12.00. Sean Gilmartin was actually worse (13.50 ERA) in 3.1 innings for the Mets this season.
