PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – While several local players are simply adjusting to life as a pro after being selected in the Major League Baseball draft earlier this month, Vince Voiro is adjusting to a new approach to pitching in his second season as a pro after being selected by the Oakland A’s in the 15th round of the 2012 Draft.
Voiro was a standout at Cherry Hill West High School and the University of Pennsylvania. He went 5-3 with a 2.45 ERA as a senior with the Quakers. So far, he has spent all of 2013 with the Beloit Snappers of the Single-A Midwest League.
“I feel good so far this year,” Voiro tells KYW Newsradio. “It’s been a little bit complicated, we’re doing a system called ‘piggybacking’ where you switch every other game with another guy. You’re starting one game, and you’re relief the next game. Gives you a different feel on things, but so far, so good.”
