    Switch-pitcher Pat Venditte couldn't match his 43 2/3-inning scoreless streak and 1.88 ERA from 2007, but he still had an amazing season nonetheless. Venditte appeared in 37 of Creighton's 58 games, leading he team in wins (nine) and saves (seven) while posting a 101-21 K-BB ratio in 86 innings. The former walk-on has thrown ambidextrously since he was 3, and he recorded a strikeout with each arm 17 different times this year. Scouts consider him more of a novelty than a true prospect, as his stuff is ordinary from both sides. As a righthander, he works with an upper-80s fastball and a curveball, slider and changeup. As a lefty, he drops his arm angle and utilizes a low-80s fastball and a slow, sweepy breaking ball. The Yankees drafted him in the 45th round last year, and someone will take him as a senior sign in the middle rounds this time.
