2013-03-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Pat Venditte pitched at AAA last year. PLEASE TELL ME that the Yankees will get desperate and have a Pat Venditte night so his big league dreams can come true. If that doesn't happen, it's option B: Start a campaign to pressure the Marlins to trade for him and use him in their bullpen.
(Brady Childs from Louisiana Tech (cafeteria))
Venditte, for those who might not know, is a switch-pitcher. He pitched 13 innings last season for Scranton, the Yankees Triple-A club. It was only 13 innings because, a not-so-quick google search tells me, he has a torn labrum in his right shoulder. It looks like he may have been on the roster of Team Italy in the WBC, which is one of the odd things, in theory, about being ambidextrous: you can rehab one arm while still pitching with the other.

Still, my understanding of his stuff is that he's not much from either side of the plate so if he loses the platoon advantage, something he has all the time, then he's not major league material.

I wrote a piece a while back about him. You can read it here: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=16406 (Matthew Kory)
2012-11-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)Any predictions as to players that Houston, Cubs, Twins and other bottom feeders might take a flyer on in the Rule V draft? From what I've seen, it doesn't look like a very appetizing bunch to choose from, but have I missed anything?
(Bill from New Mexico)
Seems like Josh Fields and Marc Krauss could be off the board early. I've read Randy Henry, Chris McGuiness...but temper your expectations, since there aren't impact players that often. It won't happen, but how fun would it be if some team selected Pat Venditte, the Yankees' ambidextrous reliever? So fun. That's how fun it would be. I believe he's eligible for the first time. (Ben Lindbergh)
2010-04-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Love the expanded player comments...please keep them. My question has to do with the website. Last year, Joe Sheehan wrote an entire article about a single play Joe Mauer made in a game against the yankess. It was fantastic, the kind of informed sportswriting I can't find elsewhere. That's the kind of writing I miss the most and I'm waiting for one of the current bp authors to take over this role. Is anyone going to be doing this?
(tcayou from AZ)
The short answer is yes. We just need some games first! On a related note, did you see Jay Jaffe's bit on Pat Venditte yesterday? http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=10418. (Steven Goldman)
2009-09-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)So what do you think about Pat Venditte after this year? Still a novelty or do we have a real prospect here?
(Dave from NJ)
I think he's maybe some kind of situational reliever at best, but still a longshot. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-05-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any thoughts on Pat Venditte? Does a switch pitcher worry you from an injury perspective?
(rsambrook from Vancouver)
No, he's actually a real problem since you can't treat him as two pitchers. It's the same legs. The back/core has to go two directions. It's an incredibly complex issue. Id KILL to see what the joint loads are. I've only seen the highlights of him pitching, so don't know enough about him to comment on mechanics, but he's getting real pro hitters out, so it's more than a gimmick. (Will Carroll)
2009-05-07 14:00:00 (link to chat)Has Pat Venditte's stuff gotten any better or are his good numbers just because of the gimmick?
(PFoJ from Philadelphia)
Honestly? I don't know. He CAN spin a curveball, and that can really serve you well at the lower levels. I think the jury is still out, but that's certainly an upgrade from where we were six months ago. (Kevin Goldstein)
