Player: Nittoli, Vinny
Card: 2021 Choice Tacoma Rainiers #NA
“He’s had a journey,” said manager Scott Servais about his first callup to the Mariners “All you guys love to tell the stories, so you’ll have plenty to talk about when he gets on the mound.”
Michael Vincent Nittoli (b. Tempe, AZ in 1990) is a pitcher for the Philadelphia Phillies. He previously played in Major League Baseball (MLB) for the Seattle Mariners. “Vinny” was drafted by the Mariners in the 25th round of the 2014 Major League Baseball draft.
Gone are the days of big names being traded in August after the “non-waiver” deadline. There are no longer waiver trades in August – nowadays, since the 2019 rule change, the trade deadline is more of a hard deadline.
Still, deals can happen for players who haven’t been on 40-man rosters at all in 2022 – such as Vinny’s move from the Blue Jays organization to the Phillies on Aug. 3, 2022.
