• Jeff Baker, who made his first start at second base on Wednesday night, has started at six positions this season, including designated hitter. He is the only player in the Major Leagues to do that. Baker had a 15-pitch at-bat against Indians closer Vinnie Pestano in the ninth inning on Wednesday. That's the most pitches in a plate appearance in the Majors this season.
