    View Draft Report
    Paciorek is a converted reliever who has been successful out of the bullpen for Northwestern. He has struck out 44 batters in just 26.2 innings so far this spring, but he has also struggled with 18 walks during that same span. A former catcher, Paciorek is athletic and has a good delivery, attacking hitters with a low-90s fastball that reaches 94 mph. He pairs his fastball with a slider that has good shape and flashes plus potential with a chance to be a double-plus offering in the future. The 6-foot-2, 195-pound righthander can only hold his stuff for an inning or two, ensuring that he sticks in the bullpen at the next level. Paciorek has good arm strength with little mileage, which helps him to stand out as a two-pitch reliever.
