DUNEDIN, Fla.–Former Baltimore Orioles first round pick Adam Loewen of Surry, BC appears to be making the switch from left

handed pitcher to outfielder with his call up Tuesday by the Toronto Blue Jays.  Picked in 2002 by the Orioles, Loewen last pitched in a major league game on July 6, 2008 vs Texas when his already surgically repaired left elbow finally gave out.  As of today, Loewen has been off a major lague field for over 1,1158 calendar days. That’s over three years!
 
When Loewen plays in his first game for Toronto, who signed him to a minor league contract in 2009, he will join some pretty impressive company in making the switch.  Just two who have made the switch in the majors from the mound to a position are Babe Ruth and Rick Ankiel.
