Venditte typically throws with the hand needed to gain the platoon advantage. As a natural right-hander, he throws harder righty. His velocity is in the mid to high 80s with both arms, touching 90 mph right-handed.

The A's reportedly have signed a right-handed pitcher and a left-handed pitcher, all in one move.

The ambidextrous Pat Venditte will take his switch-pitching talents to Oakland on a Minor League deal that includes an invitation to big league Spring Training, according to a recent tweet from his agent, Marc Kligman. The club has not confirmed the signing.
