    View Draft Report
    Passantino was arguably the most dominant pitcher in the Cape Cod League as a rising junior, posting a 1.13 ERA in 55.2 innings. This spring, Passantino posted a robust 95-to-9 strikeout-to-walk ration. He's not overpower, throwing his fastball in the mid to upper 80s. He has a sharp slider and shows flashes with a curveball too. Passantino's loud performance could intrigue some teams, but he could also end up back at Lipscomb for one more year.
