Charlie Culberson is now a relief pitcher (yes, really)

Long-time position player Charlie Culberson is attempting to transition to pitching. In an interview with Dave Lezotte, the play-by-play voice of the Gwinnett Stripers, prior to yesterday’s game, Culberson announced that he is working to transition to a pitcher.

Culberson told Lezotte that he’d like to be a two-way player but is trying to do as much as he can to extend his career. The transition - which he is working on with the Braves organization - started in April but was interrupted by two call-ups to the major league roster.

He has been working on pitching full-time since returning to the Stripers in August…

During his career, he has played in parts of four season with Atlanta: 2018-2020 and 2023. He’s slashed .248/.294/.386 with 30 home runs in his career, thus far. In the eight games he’s pitched in the majors, he’s tossed 7.1 innings and given up only one earned run with one strikeout and a 1.364 WHIP.
