Focus Area
Fastball:Carignan has a good fastball, throwing it in the 88-92 mph range.
Slider:Right now, his slider is below average.

Physical Description:Carignan is a smallish right-hander.
Medical Update:Healthy.
Strengths:Arm strength, good fastball, poise.

Summary:Despite only having one average, or above-average pitch, Carignan has gotten excellent results as North Carolina's closer. Arm strength alone won't get you to the big leagues, so Carignan will have to improve his secondary offerings if he wants a chance at a big-league bullpen job down the line.
