The Marlins recalled RHP Chris Hatcher from AA Jacksonville today. From Joe Capozzi:
Hatcher will be the first catcher-turned-pitcher in the majors since Art Doll of the Boston Braves.When life gives you a surplus of middling receivers, make middle relievers...
Art, nicknamed "Moose," made his debut in 1935 and played three games as a catcher. He returned in 1936 and lost his only start as a pitcher. He made three more appearances in 1938, all in relief.
