An undersized righthander listed at 6 feet, 205 pounds, Carey showed solid pitching ability over his first two years with Duke and then took a big step forward in his stuff last fall. That prompted many to think he would have a breakout season, and Carey was impressive at times, but also had a lot of inconsistencies. He struggled out of the gate but found success later in the year after upping his slider usage and was particularly impressive in an ACC Tournament matchup against Miami, where he struck out eight and walked one over six innings. However, in his next start against Liberty in the Knoxville Regional, he allowed eight earned runs and seven hits in just 3.1 innings of work. On the season, Carey posted a 5.24 ERA over 68.2 innings and 15 starts, with 69 strikeouts (9.0 K/9) and 25 walks (3.3 BB/9). Carey’s fastball sits in the 91-93 mph range and he runs it up to 96 mph at his best. His go-to secondary is a slider in the low 80s that he’s shown good feel to spin at times, but the pitch is inconsistent. He’s also thrown a slower curveball in the 70s, a cutter and a changeup.
