Position Players Pitching Newsbeat

Sunday, June 28, 2015

Rookie League manager leaves bullpen off lineup card, has to use position players in relief

Rivera sent out left-hander Seth Davis to take over in the fifth. Before Davis could face his first batter, plate ump Jeb Bennett called a halt to the proceedings…

“I saw that (Davis) wasn’t listed on the lineup card ... the number ... I don’t know their players’ names,” said Bluefield manager Dennis Holmberg.

“It’s a tough situation, but the umpire caught it. I looked at my lineup card and said ‘What’s his number?’ But he would have caught it anyhow. That’s their job,” he said.
