MIAMI — Left-hander Jared Pettitte, son of three-time All-Star lefty Andy Pettitte, agreed to terms with the Miami Marlins as an undrafted free agent on Tuesday.
Marlins CEO Derek Jeter and Andy Pettitte were New York Yankees teammates for 15 seasons.
“Dream into reality!” the younger Pettitte posted to his Instagram story. “Blessed for this opportunity and ready to get to work @marlins.”
Jared Pettitte pitched for Dallas Baptist University this year and had a 5.81 ERA in 13 games. He helped lead his Houston high school team — coached by former major leaguer Lance Berkman — to a state title in 2016, where he had a 12-1 record and a 1.20 ERA.
