In the Lance Berkman post, I joked around and said I would rather have Zambrano play 1B than sign Berkman. I thought, "why couldn't a pitcher like Z (a decent hitter, etc.) play a position like 1B once in a while between his starts? It's not like he has to throw a whole bunch. Would it totally just kill his recovery time? Has there ever been a time when a pitcher has been used like this?
