Switch Pitcher in the MLB?

Has there ever been a switch pitcher in the major leagues?

Check out this answer:

Greg Harris switch pitches in a major league game in 1995

Harris was the first major league switch pitcher in 100 years!


Could there be a major league switch pitcher in 2015?

It's possible ...

Pat Venditte is a switch pitcher in the minor leagues for the Oakland Athletics. For the past few years he was with the Yankees ... switch pitching in AAA.

Venditte could be the first ambidextrous pitcher to throw in an MLB game - since Greg Harris switch pitched for one inning back in 1995.
