    I mean, I get it, it's all NL pitchers and all in the golden era of Baseball. But still... none since?

      Ohtani hits when he pitches. They re-did the DH rule for him to allow him to stay in games as a DH after he leaves the mound.

      I'm surprised by the number of people who might think Koufax, because as good has he was over the latter half of his career as a pitcher, he was just that bad as a hitter (hit below .100 for his career). In fact he may be the worst hitter among all the Cy Young winners (at least those who took a regular turn at the plate).

      • Assuming Koufax, to me, because I don't know a lot of the historical details of players and assumed "known name pitcher + national league + dominant team for era."

          Winning the Cy is probably the caveat.

              Wonderful question. Thank you!

              I never knew Spahn was a great hitter. Drysdale was legendary and Gibson hit two grand slams.

                Don Newcombe was probably the best hitter among those pre-DH Cy Young winners. Not the home run power of some, but he finished his major league career as a .268 hitter, and slugged .361. Drysdale was the better hitter among those dominant Dodger teams of the 1960s, but outside of that occasional pop and 1965 when he was a .300 hitter in 138 plate appearances, he was just a career .186 hitter in almost 1200 at-bats.

                    Wes Ferrell. His 162-game season average works out to 11 61 .280/.351/.446. He had over 200 career RBI and a lifetime batting WAR of 11.

                        Ferrell might have been a better hitter than pitcher. I doubt he would have contended for a Cy Young had the award been around during his career but he may have gotten a few top-5 votes in a couple of his best years. He was a workhorse for sure on the mound.
