All though you could make the case that he 's only thrown thirty three major league innings, Patton will be twenty eight next season, and batters have hit him fairly hard in the big leagues (6.75 ERA). This season is very important for Patton, who could become another decent set up man under control for years to come, or a AAAA pitcher who will not succeed in Major League Baseball.
