SCOTTSDALE Pete Rose Jersey , Ariz. (AP) —League Baseball and the players’ association adopt a three-batter minimum for pitchers starting in 2020: the 33-year-old reliever is a switch-pitcher.The rule, if adopted, might cause less use of left-handed relief specialists. That could benefit Venditte, who has made 56 appearances over three big-league seasons and is at his first spring training with the San Francisco Giants.“As long as I’m executing pitches and getting guys out, that would be beneficial from a split standpoint,” Venditte said Wednesday. “The only thing that would throw that off would be a switch-hitter, obviously. Then I’d be just like anybody else. You could still have them go from their weaker side. If I’m doing my job, it would be advantageous to me.”Venditte pitched for Oakland in 2015, Toronto and Seattle in 2016 and the Los Angeles Dodgers last year http://www.philliesfanproshop.com/authentic-pat-neshek-jersey ,Players and owners have been discussing how to speed the pace of play.“As with anything, the game evolves,” Venditte said. “With anything, the players will adapt, the players will go with it. Whatever changes come, I’m sure the people involved in those decisions will do what’s best for the game.”He is proud of his special ability.“It’s a good thing I’ve got the right hand going, for sure,” he said. Hardy had a tremendous 2018 season, and other teams are taking note."It looks like Nicholas Castellanos isn’t the only Tiger drawing trade interest this offseason. Lefty reliever Blaine Hardy has piqued the interest of the Oakland Athletics John Kruk Jersey , who are looking to bolster their pitching roster with someone who can do double duty as a starter and long reliever.Hardy played that role with aplomb for the Tigers this season, and with the addition of lefty Matt Moore who seems poised to take over that position in 2019, another team might want to snap up Hardy. According to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle, Hardy is definitely drawing some interest from the A’s. Currently only 31, and with three years of service time remaining before free agency, Hardy would be an appealing get for a team that wants a malleable arm in their rotation. Though the Tigers seem to clearly be eyeing Hardy for a bullpen role this year — the addition of swingmen like Moore and Tyson Ross doesn’t leave much space for him in the starting rotation — Hardy is still one of the most valuable pitchers on the team, and the Tigers shouldn’t take a trade offer lightly. Last season, Hardy did everything he needed to do to prove his value to the team, by adjusting his entire pitching approach Greg Luzinski Jersey , becoming a Triple-A starter, and really helping keep the team afloat as other traditional starters were felled by injury. There are several reasons the Tigers shouldn’t let Hardy go. For one, their bullpen already needs as much help as it can get, with the Tigers willing to let Alex Wilson walk during arbitration. Hardy is a lefty who can fill a long relief role, or anything else the Tigers throw at him, really. Last season he had a 3.56 ERA, a 3.97 FIP, and a 1.17 WHIP, collecting a career-high 66 strikeouts in 86 innings of work.If the Tigers really do plan to consider the “opener” strategy periodically http://www.philliesfanproshop.com/authentic-pat-neshek-jersey , then Hardy is precisely the kind of pitcher they will most want to have in their arsenal. He can deliver over a long stretch, and has proven himself to be consistent and reliable.So yeah, the A’s might want him, but the Tigers would be wise to walk away and keep Hardy in Detroit.
