Scott Robert Patterson (born June 20, 1979 in Oakdale, Pennsylvania) is an American former professional baseball pitcher. He played in Major League Baseball (MLB) for the New York Yankees and San Diego Padres.

Early life[edit]

Patterson grew up in the Pittsburgh suburb of Oakdale, PA where his dad and brother currently live. He attended West Allegheny High School where he still holds the single season strikeout record. Following high school he attended Allegany College of Maryland in Cumberland, Maryland. Afterward, he attended West Virginia State, where, during his senior season he threw a perfect game and was also awarded the 2002 WVIAC Pitcher of the Year.

Career[edit]

Patterson was re-signed by the New York Yankees as a free agent on November 16, 2007,[1] after spending most of the previous two seasons with their Double-A affiliate, the Trenton Thunder. Prior to spending time in the Yankees organization, he was in the Frontier League, an independent baseball league, for 412 seasons.

On June 1, 2008, Patterson was called up to the major leagues for the first time and made his major league debut for the Yankees. Patterson was optioned back to the minors on June 3, 2008 after only pitching in one game.[2] He was designated for assignment on September 8, 2008[3] and was claimed off waivers by the San Diego Padres three days later.[4] He would end up pitching in three games for the Padres in September. On August 21, 2009 Patterson was traded to the Oakland Athletics for cash considerations.[5]

On January 20, 2010 Patterson signed a minor league contract with the Boston Red Sox. On August 5, 2012 Patterson joined the New York Mets organization and was assigned to Triple-A Buffalo.[6] He was released during the 2012 Season by the Mets.
