Patterson began his professional career on a tear as he hit .415 (17-41) over his first ten games of the season. The outfielder was as consistent as a player could be in 2005.

When asked which player in the major leagues Patterson would compare himself with he said Kevin Millar.
"I think I am similar with Kevin Millar. A lot of scouts have compared me to him. I believe because he doesn't do anything really flashy, but plays hard and in the end gets the job done."
