Did you know that only eighteen pitchers in Major League Baseball history have earned a win against all thirty Major League teams? Sportswriter AJ Cassavell once wrote, " Beating one Major League team figures to be difficult enough for a starting pitcher. Beating all 30 of them, however, is nothing short of pitching history ." We agree and are pleased to present the I've Beaten Every Major League Team "club" that includes these 18 twirlers: Kevin Brown , A.J. Burnett , Bartolo Colon , Dan Haren , Tim Hudson , Randy Johnson , John Lackey , Al Leiter (who started the "club"), Kyle Lohse , Derek Lowe , Jamie Moyer , Terry Mulholland , Vicente Padilla , Max Scherzer , Curt Schilling , Javier Vazquez , Woody Williams and Barry Zito .

A.J. Burnett led the National League in shutouts in 2002 (5), led the American League in 2008 in both strikeouts (231) and games started (34), and had the most wild pitches in 2002 (14), 2009 (17) and 2011 (25)! A few of his pitching feats include; a no hitter on May 12, 2001 , the third for the Marlins franchise; 4 strikeouts in 1 inning on June 24, 2011 , the first New York Yankees pitcher ever; and 200+ strikeouts in 2013, the first right-handed pitcher in Pittsburgh Pirates history to strikeout 200 in a single season.

A.J. Burnett No Hitter ( Box Score

A.J. Burnett issued nine walks in his no-hitter ( box ), one shy of the record for most walks in a no-no set by Jim Maloney on August 19, 1965 . In Burnett's gem, every starting position player reached base on a walk except two, the opposing pitcher ( Wascar Serrano ) and the second baseman ( Damian Jackson ), who did reach base, by a hit by pitch that broken his wrist.

Pitching Analysis: A.J. can best be described as a classic power pitcher, with four pitches (four-seam fastball, sinker, curveball, and a changeup) at his disposal, a truly outstanding fastball that can almost always get him out of trouble, and control problems that can place him in trouble just as easily. His curveball, which is sometimes a a knuckle curve, can simply be devastating - when he controls it.
