Jason Lane made his starting debut today. He lost, but pitched pretty darn well

Jason Lane spent seven seasons as a hitter. Not a terrible one, either. He posted an .815 OPS, hit 26 homers, and had 78 RBI in 145 games for a pennant winner in 2005. But after that he crashed hard and was done as a big league bat. He reinvented himself as a pitcher in the Padres organization and was called up in June. Today he got his first start at age 37. And it wasn’t half...

Santana, Gattis lead Braves to 2-0 win over Padres

ATLANTA (AP) -- Ervin Santana knew in the very first inning his slider would be tough to hit. It took a while to know if that would be good enough for a win. In the seventh, Evan Gattis finally came through. Gattis hit a tiebreaking homer off outfielder-turned-pitcher Jason Lane and that was all Santana and the Atlanta Braves needed, beating San Diego 2-0 on Monday for their third...

Jason Lane’s unprecedented return to big leagues as a pitcher

I was disappointed to see San Diego Padres LHP Jason Lane designated for assignment. The converted OF threw 4 1/3 scoreless innings over 2 outings, giving up just 1 hit in the process. The move was expected, as the Padres were just using Lane to help out with a depleted bullpen. Lane’s career has been […]
