Which Royals position player should pitch in a pinch?

A while back I did a piece about which Royals pitcher should be used to play outfield should the need arise. That led a reader to ask which infielder should pitch if the Royals ran out of arms. In the past, the Royals used Mitch Maier: not because they thought he had the best arm, but because Mitch was the only one mature enough not to blow his arm out by trying to do too much. It might be instructive to know that Mitch Maier has a career ERA of 0.00.
