And what better day for it than the Babe’s birthday…
Micah Owings is no longer the best-hitting pitcher in baseball. Now he’s just another minor league first baseman trying to make it to the majors, as the 30-year-old has officially switched from pitching to hitting and signed with the Nationals...
he’s far from guaranteed to be a productive everyday hitter, particularly at an offense-driven position like first base.
As a first baseman/pitcher, however, Owings could be awfully interesting even if he were just mediocre at both roles and for a minor-league deal the price is certainly right for the Nationals.
for his generous support.
