RP - MIA - MiLB
Pat Venditte was removed from Tuesday's game against the Mets with an apparent injury.
Venditte recently signed a minor-league deal with Miami. We should get an update on his status after the game.
The Marlins are signing Pat Venditte to a minor-league contract.
Venditte signed a minor-league deal with the club back in January but was let go prior to summer Camp. With the organization in desperate need of healthy bodies they return to a familiar name here. Venditte can pitch with both of his arms but owns a 5.03 career ERA.
The Blue Jays have optioned RP Pat Venditte to Triple-A.
Venditte is better known that most middling bullpen arms considering his can throw with both of his. He got off to a rough start this season and has been unable to repeat some of the promise he showed in his rookie campaign with the A's.
In a low-scoring affair on Sunday, Blue Jays bullpen hopeful Pat Venditte recorded a save, allowing only one hit in the process.
Venditte looked a little shaky with his control throwing right-handed, but eventually induced a game-ending double play, finished by a second-base illegal slide ruling. Venditte is still yet to allow a run this spring, and is in a good spot to join the Blue Jays going north due to the versatility of his throwing...arms.
Blue Jays reliever Pat Venditte is yet to allow a run this spring for the Blue Jays. He has recorded one strikeout in five spring innings
Venditte is looking to take the second lefty reliever role for the Blue Jays behind Brett Cecil, and allowing no runs is certainly a solid way to do so. If he secured the spot he may be in line for some holds this season in the lefty-heavy American League East.
