The ace reliever for North Carolina this spring, Palermo was second on the 2022 Tar Heels team in appearances and posted a 2.78 ERA over 58.1 innings, with 74 strikeouts (30.5 K%). Palermo primarily pitched off a 94 mph fastball this spring, which ran up to 99 mph at its best with solid spin and induced vertical break. His most-used secondary was a mid-80s slider that blended into a cutter as the season progressed, and he also experimented with a spike-curve in a similar velocity range to the slider, but with more vertical and horizontal break. Palermo has also shown an ability to kill spin with a mid-80s splitter that has potential, but he used the pitch more in the preseason than the regular season. Given his pitch mix, it wouldn’t be surprising if a team tried to start Palermo at the next level, especially considering his step forward in control in 2022 (9.9 BB%) compared to 2020-2021 (18.0 BB%).
