Darrell May is one. Although he's not all that special or anything.
Dan Serafini got an opportunity, although he ended up going right back. Even though he sucked with the Reds, he's gone back to Chiba Lotte and become a major cog in the Marines' rotation.
I'm certain there are others, but it's more common for position players.
