i think not, but it does make some guys extremely valuable (namely the stud pitchers). I wouldn't take just any pitcher higher than normal, but the Sheets, Ollie Perez's, and expecially Schmidts (AKA young, solid K pitchers) higher than normal.
That said, I would definitely try to grab a Figgins/Cuddyer type who has many positions eligible, trying to get a backup hitter for most positions in as few picks as possible. That would allow most of my bench to be pitchers, allowing me to rotate a bit more when necessary.
edit; oops, missed the part about bench players not being allowed to play except injury. Then ignore my post, grab the top backup for every spot. That's obnoxious.
