Patterson Promoted To NY

According to multiple reports, Scott Patterson has finally been called up to the majors in lieu of the short hook which will be awaiting Joba Chamberlain on Tuesday. Patterson was a wounded soldier after not making the big club out of Spring training, and that could have led to the tough start to his AAA campaign this year.

Over his 22 appearances [and 23.2 innings] at Scranton, Patterson struck out 22, walked just five, allowed 22 hits and pitched to a 3.04 ERA. Over his last 10 outings Patterson has 8 strikeouts, zero walks and 7 hits over 10.1 innings pitched with a 1.74 ERA.

Much of Patterson's success spawns from his unorthodox, funky delivery seen here:

The corresponding move was Morgan Ensberg getting the ol' DFA.
