Venditte was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Thursday, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Venditte joined the Giants on a one-year deal in December but didn't pitch well in spring training with seven runs allowed on eight hits and four walks over 5.2 innings. The 33-year-old should serve as bullpen depth in the minors for the Giants.
