Bryan Anderson’s Official Baseball-Reference Position: Pinch Hitter


As pointed out by Joe Posnanski’s dissection of Tony LaRussa’s managerial decisions during Saturday night’s 20-inning affair, Cardinals newbie Bryan Anderson’s official position, as noted by is “pinch hitter”.

This is stated as such because Anderson hasn’t played an “official” inning in the field – which is sure to change.

Or maybe not.  Who knows really, given Yadier Molina’s desire to play every inning and La Russa’s reluctance to use him, even as a pinch hitter in the 19th inning when two relief pitchers gobbled up plate appearances before him.

Side Note: Posnanski’s recap is an absolute must-read.  Link below.
