Anthony Recker

June 30, 2013

Three teams employed position players as pitchers between June 28-30, with backup catcher Anthony Recker rounding out the weekend. Recker was the fifth man out of the Mets' bullpen, called on by Terry Collins to pitch the ninth inning with the Mets down 11-0 to the Nationals. Recker's first six pitches were balls, and the seventh was a two-run home run by Ian Desmond, but the next three men he faced all flew out.
