ESPN did a piece on switch pitcher Pat Venditte.
Nobody seems to think Venditte is a prospect. But the numbers don’t lie: 58 innings, 49 hits, 77 strikeouts. He started the season with Charleston and was promoted to Tampa to get challenged.
He has been pretty solid in the Florida State League, throwing 27.1 innings and allowing 25 hits while striking out 37.
Venditte is 24, which is old for that level of competition. But he’s put himself in a position to get a chance.
