Pat Venditte Impresses

The 24 year old came out of the bullpen to relieve C.C., when warming up he threw 4 from the left and 4 from the right.

"I understand where it's coming from, and it's my job to go out there and prove that I can pitch," Venditte said. "People are going to have their doubts when they hear something like this, and I've got to prove that I can do it."

Venditte was a walk-on at Creighton University, then drafted as a 20th-round Draft pick by Yankees in 2008 and is 5-2 with a 1.53 ERA in 79 career Minor League relief appearances.
Last season, Venditte finished at Class A Tampa, where he was 2-0 with a 2.21 ERA in 21 games.

Venditte allowed 1 earned run and 2 hits while working 1 and 1/3 against the Braves.

Venditte Promoted

The 24 year old reliever finally got the promotion to Tampa. What shocking is that it took so long with his numbers as ridiculous as they are. It'll be interesting to see if he can continue his success against tougher competition.
