Question

Guest Umptroop

Team A starts the game with Adams as P/DH pitcher in #4 spot, 3rd inning Jones comes in to pitch and Adams moves to SS.  Smith who is the SS in the #2 spot goes to the bench, Can Jones bat in the #2 spot for Smith and Adams continue as DH in the #4 spot and play SS?

Yes. Not only can you do it that way, that's the only way to do it.

Keep it simple: Jones is a sub for Smith in the 2 spot. That's how to report it. Adams is F/DH who changed defensive positions. Legal.

The new rule simply allows coaches to replace a F/DH on defense and keep him in the lineup on offense. Usually, that will be P/DH, but it need not be.

Any player in the lineup may switch defensive positions with another player. That's not a substitution and doesn't affect the DH.
