Claimed off waiver from San Fransico, he's a centerfielder turned pitcher, that needed to be put on the 40 man in order to be claimed.

he's a centerfielder turned pitcher.

next year, Reds bring up Coutlangus and Asadoorian, both ex-CFers turned LHPer and RHPer, respectively. We double switch, taking out Jr. If a lefty is up, Coutlangus pitches and Asadoorian (who's quite a defensive CFer, I hear) plays center. When a righty is up, Coutlangus goes out to CF and Asadoorian goes in to pitch.

Sounds very Larussian.

He's a swinger. Really popular with the ladies.

I can't believe it took six posts before that joke was made. Thanks Puffy.

Did Asadoorian make the switch officially?

Joseph, not that I have heard of. In an article about a week after he pitched, it talked about how he was not really open to the idea, but that it had been proposed to him.
