J.P. Arencibia Tosses Scoreless Inning
2014 may go down as the Year of the Position Player Pitcher. Texas Rangers C/1B J.P. Arencibia became the latest position player to toe the rubber last night, tossing a scoreless inning in a blowout loss to the Tampa Bay Rays. Relying exclusively on a low-70s fastball/dropball(?), Arencibia only allowed one hit in the frame. He had a good sense of humor about the appearance, and his stuff, after the game.
