Gerald Laird of the Tigers made 123 defensive starts in 2009 and still failed to reach the minimum number of PAs to qualify for the batting title. Melvin Mora of the Orioles also came up short despite 122 defensive starts. I haven't checked any previous seasons yet to find out if Laird is close to a record in that category, but it seemed notable. It didn't surprise me that a catcher (particularly a lighter-hitting one) topped the list because that's the most likely late-inning substitute position, thus fewer PAs.

Daniel McCutchen got 12 plate appearances, i wonder if all 4 ever got to bat in a single inning?
