Must be a rule change I wasn't aware of.
Get the FED rule out of your head, then read the pro rule again.

6.10 (b) The Designated Hitter may be used defensively, continuing to bat in the same position in the batting order, but the pitcher must then bat in the place of the substituted defensive player, unless more than one substitution is made, and the manager then must designate their spots in the batting order.
