Pitt redshirt junior right-handed pitcher Dominic Verrastro announced his decision to transfer from the program on Thursday.

He wrote a statement and posted it to Twitter thanking everyone for their help along the way. Verrastro received his bachelor’s degree from Pitt and is entering the transfer portal as a grad transfer.

“To my teammates, I appreciate everything that you guys have done,” Verrastro wrote. “You guys are my brothers and I wish you all the best of luck.”

Verrastro did not pitch last season and redshirted. He made five relief appearances for the Panthers in the 2021 season. He pitched a total of 3.0 innings and gave up five hits and five earned runs. Two of those hits were home runs, one was a double and he also issued two walks. He finished the 2021 season with a 15.00 ERA, second highest average on the team.

He is originally from Scott Township, in Lackawanna County, P.A. in the northeastern part of the state. He pitched for Lackawanna College at the Junior College level for two seasons.

He saw the most success in his first season in 2019. Verrastro pitched in 18 games, earned a 6-0 record, made two starts and threw 32 strikeouts in 36.2 innings pitched. His efforts helped lead his team to the JuCo World Series.

Verrastro didn’t pitch much in the abbreviated 2020 season due to COVID-19. He still put-up solid stats, with seven strikeouts a 1.69 ERA in 5.1 innings pitched.

With the departure of Verrastro, Pitt still has 13 right-handed pitchers on their roster and 19 pitchers in total.
