One of the more intriguing members of the Yankee farm system is a player who hasn’t showed up on any of the top prospect lists I’ve seen over the past few months and likely never will. That player is Pat Venditte, the ambidextrous relief pitcher from Double-A Trenton. Venditte is conversation-worthy because his [...]
Yesterday, Rob Neyer had a few things to say about the Yankees’ handling of Pat Venditte. Venditte, as you know, is the ambidextrous pitcher twice drafted by the Yankees. After dominating A-ball hitters, he was recently promoted to Double A Trenton. Venditte is 25 years old and rarely cracks 90 mph on his fastball when [...]
Prediction comes true: Pat Venditte is on a schedule
Three days after his last appearance, Pat Venditte pitched two innings for Tampa tonight. He struck out four and allowed one hit. While its only two appearances, I willing to bet that this is a permanent shift for Venditte. He will pitch multiple-inning appearances to a [...]

Pat Venditte made a sensational season debut on Saturday. He pitched 3 perfect innings, striking out four. You’re probably already familiar with the switch-pitcher, so I won’t rehash it here.

As I see it, one of the more interesting minor-league story-lines for the Yankees this season will center upon the development of ambidextrous reliever, Pat Venditte. For those who are unfamiliar with Venditte, for whatever reason, and therefore are confused by the thought of an ambidextrous pitcher, this video clip from 2007 should [...]
-Here’s the pitching match ups for the upcoming Yanks-Red Sox series:
Friday-Pettitte vs Penny
Saturday-Burnett vs Tazawa
Sunday-Sabathia vs Beckett
We really should take 2 of 3, even in Boston. Beckett got shelled his last time out, so maybe that shoulder is wearing down like it did last year.
-Here’s an ESPN360 piece on [...]
Pat Venditte Almost Perfect
Switch-pitcher Pat Venditte put up video game-like numbers for Staten Island last season. He allowed just a 0.83 ERA in 32 2/3 innings while acting as the team’s closer and making 23 saves. He struck out 42 and walked 10 in that time period, while allowing just 13(!) hits.
He’s still [...]
From Jim Baumbach:
The curiosity that led the Yankees to draft ambidextrous pitcher Pat Venditte last June has quickly been replaced by intrigue. And that’s as good an indication as there is of just how impressive Venditte’s debut season as a professional switch pitcher was….
And the Yankees love that Venditte is a [...]
