MLB said now that the batter will decide before the at-bat

Dragging this thread up from the depths...

Anybody wondering if this guy is for real?

For the Sally League's Charleston Riverdogs, he has a .74 ERA, 17 saves, and 38 strikeouts in just 24 IP. I'm surprised he hasn't been promoted yet, but since he hasn't, I'll go watch him pitch this Sunday and let everyone know.

How long until he gets promoted? And also, has he become a prospect and less of a spectacle yet?

He had a great year last year too and seems like he should be getting some respect for his pitching rather than his special talent.

Yeah, I followed himafter hearing about him from ESPN. LOL His numbers look for real, & I heard his stuff has improved obviously since this topic was 1st created. I'm monitoring him, tho he's not in CBSs minors database yet. I don't see why he wouldn't be servicable in the majors. Ive seen alot worse so far. lol....Vegeta

I remember hearing a whisper about an ambidextrous pitcher last year.  I finally found the guy, just came across this article randomly too.  Crazy stuff.

i read something how in the minors...they named it the venditte rule...and now the pitcher and batter both can only make a change once per at bat...not sure who can go first and who goes last in terms of changing sides...but i remember reading that only one change is allowed cuz of this guy...they made this rule cuz he was facing a switch hitter and they both kept changing sides for about 10-15 mins and the ump made the batter finalize which side he was gonna hit from...and the batter was pissed off after the game cuz there was previous rule that he was aware of that he couldnt keep changing sides...

i read this quite a while ago so my memory might not be exactly accurate about it...

whenever he gets promoted we'll see if his numbers are for real.  He's mowing them down so far in low-A, but is one of the more experienced pitchers in that league.

According to Baseball Reference he pitched 13 innings in AAA with a 2.77 ERA. His SO/BB is less than impressive (2.0), but it's a fairly small sample size. I could see him spending the season in AAA and then maybe getting promoted if his stuff is good enough. He looks like he'll be a solid relief pitcher and maybe even a closer at some point in his career. It seems like he has made great progress since the time the original video was made. I'm definitely watching him.

"Venditte spent the 2012 season with the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees, pitching in seven games and putting up some good numbers. Unfortunately, he suffered a torn labrum early on – thus ending his season."

What a wimp.  He has a second labrum, doesn't he?  If Jim Abbott could pitch with one hand, Venditte should be able to pitch with one labrum.

(seriously, I'd love to see him in the bigs)
