Tigers infielder Danny Worth flashes a nasty knuckleball

New, comments

Wasn't expecting that.

Danny Worth is a utility infielder. He might be the very utility infielderiest of utility infielders. He plays all over the infield, can't hit, and seems pleasant enough. Those are all qualifications for a pure utility infielder.

He moonlights as a knuckleball viking, though.


Wooo. One inning, one hit allowed, two strikeouts. Lyle Overbay pitched recently, too, so it's time to update the list of the last position players to pitch for each franchise:
