Caracci has come a long way. After redshirting as a freshman, he didn’t earn a spot on the Rebels’ 35-man roster in 2017. Caracci finally got his first chance as a redshirt sophomore and quickly became Mississippi’s closer, earning second-team All-America honors and an opportunity to play with USA Baseball’s Collegiate National Team. He was a 37th-round pick of the Blue Jays in 2018. This spring, Caracci’s fastball generally continued to play better than its radar gun readings, but there were times when he was extremely hittable—most notably when he blew a six-run lead against Louisiana State. A couple of outings like that make Caracci’s statistics hard to stomach for a draftable reliever—he was 3-3, 5.60 with nine saves in late May with 4.9 walks per nine and 11.5 strikeouts per nine. Caracci has an up-tempo delivery and works quickly. His fastball has some late jump, helping him get swings and misses in the zone at 93-95 mph. It dipped to 90-92 mph early in the season. His low-80s slider has improved, but it’s still fringe-average.
