Mainland Regional H.S. Alum Chase Petty Makes 2022 Pro Debut
Mainland Regional High School alum Chase Petty made his 2022 professional debut on Saturday, pitching for the Daytona Tortugas.
The 19-year-old pitcher was the 26th overall pick in the 2021 MLB Draft by the Minnesota Twins but was traded during the off-season to the Cincinnati Reds in exchange for pitchers Sonny Gray and Francis Peguero.
The Somers Point-native tossed four innings, giving up four hits, and one run, striking out three during his debut with the Reds' organization.
Despite allowing just one run, Petty was saddled with the loss.
This is Petty's debut at the full-season level after pitching rookie ball in two games in 2021. He is ranked as the seventh-best prospect in the Reds organization.
