WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE
Carey was a regular starter for Duke as a junior after pitching in relief as a freshman.  His sophomore season, of course, was largely eliminated by the pandemic.  His numbers as a junior weren’t impressive:  a 5.24 ERA, 25 walks and 69 strikeouts in 68.2 IP.  He gained ground by pitching better late in the year, but remained erratic.  He throws 91-93 mph, with a slider as probably his best secondary pitch.  He also throws a curve, cutter and change.  Baseball America ranked him 237th among draft prospects.  The Pirates picking him in round 11 may have been an indication that they committed much of their bonus pool to their first four picks.
