    What Player Played For The Most Teams In His First Season?

    Jose Bautista made his MLB debut in 2004, and played for Baltimore, Tampa Bay, Kansas City, and Pittsburgh that year. Has anybody else played for at least four teams in the year he made his MLB debut in?

    According to this site, no http://www.baseball-almanac.com/recbooks/rb_ten1.shtml

    Jose is one of 13 players to play for 4 teams in a single season which is the MLB record.

    I didn't not check to see if any of the other 12 were in their first year when it happened to them.

    I know one of the 12 was Dave Kingman, not in his first season.

    And the last of his four was the Yankees. For some reason I remember that one of the others was journeyman pitcher Mike "Oh my god, they" Kilkenny.

    Probably the only player to play for a club in all 4 Divisions and homer for each team that year (1977)

    I checked and none of the other 12 did it in their first year.
