Chris Schwinden is one of the floaty heads that appears on multiple 2012 Heritage cards. He started off the season with the AAA Buffalo Bisons and made occasional appareances with the Mets, but it’s been busy as anything for him since the Mets tried to send him to AAA after an appearance on May 30th. On June 2nd he was claimed on waivers by the Blue Jays. He appeared in one game in AAA Las Vegas and then he was claimed off waivers by the Indians. He made a few appearances for the Indians AAA team in Columbus, but then on June 29th, the Yankees claimed him off of the Indians. He appeared in one AAA game before the Yankees put him on waivers again. This time, he was claimed off the Yankees by the Mets. So, from early June to early July, Chris Schwinden pitched for four different AAA teams and ended up back where he started.
I’m not sure how to go about researching this, but I wonder if there are any ballparks he pitched in twice for different teams. Any suggestions?
Here’s a nugget of joy I got from baseball-reference.com: Chris Schwinden made his Major League debut on 9/8/11 starting in a doubleheader against the Braves, and all four starting pitchers in that doubleheader – Schwinden, Dillon Gee, Mike Minor and Julio Teheran – were rookies. That hadn’t happened since 1946.
