MO (all caps because it stands for Matthew Oliver) Wiley took the hit in the 11th. He pitched very well in his first season last year, but hurt his elbow early this year in Dayton. Rather than undergo Tommy John surgery, he elected to come back as a knuckleballer. (Got that from Doug's minor-league site.) Apparently, there are still kinks to iron out.
