more journeymen

Along with being traded as many times as any pitcher who has hit Craig Biggio with a pitch, Ron Villone also holds a record for pitching for the most teams by any of the 205 pitchers who have plunked Biggio. Villone has pitched for 9 different teams in his career, more than any other plunker of Craig Biggio. Mark Guthrie, Mike Jackson, Danny Darwin, Tim Worrell, Willie Blair, Juan Acevedo, Josias Manzanillo, Jeff Juden, Mark Leiter, Rudy Seanez and David Wells have all plunked Biggio and pitched for 8 different teams.
Villone has also hit a batter while pitching for all 9 teams he has played for. Among pitchers who have drilled Biggio, only Willie Blair, Danny Darwin and Mike Jackson hit batters for 8 different teams.
Villone is 3rd among all pitchers in that category - only Mike Morgan (11) and Terry Mulholland (10) have hit batters for more teams, and only Dave Weathers (9) has done so for as many.

16 pitchers have plunked Biggio for 2 different teams, but none have hit him for 3 different teams.

Are there any Biggio plunkers who, like him, have spent their entire careers with a single team? Other than rookies and the like, I would venture to guess not, seeing as plunking the opposition is not the sort of thing that would endear you to your management.

Off the top of my head, John Smoltz is the only one I can think of.
