Yes, but if he starts a batter right-handed he must finish that batter right-handed (or left-handed if he started the batter left-handed).

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Would it be possible for someone to note the rule in MLB, or in any organized Baseball league, that states a pitcher cannot change hands to a batter during an at bat. This question comes up a lot with the question of 'can a batter switch sides of the plate during an at bat'. It would be great if someone could note the rule concerning this.

There is a minor leaguer in the Yankees system named Pat Venditte who is a true switch pitcher (pitches left-handed to lefties and right-handed to righties, does a little shuffle with switch hitters), but he has yet to make the majors. In a game in the mid-90s, righty Greg Harris pitched to a few batters left-handed.
