The Detroit Tigers were getting blown out so badly by the Texas Rangers on Thursday afternoon that they decided to have an infielder take the mound for the ninth inning. Believe it or not, that infielder was pretty impressive.
Utility man Danny Worth, who has never pitched an inning in his career, actually has a nasty knuckleball. He allowed just one hit and struck out two batters. His MLB ERA is now officially 0.00.
We’re not saying Worth is the next RA Dickey, but he looked like more than just a position player chewing up an inning. That knuckleball had enough movement on it to make a lot of guys look silly.
