    A native Canadian who spent three years with the 18U National Team in high school, O’Halloran had an up-and-down 2022 with Michigan, but showed solid swing-and-miss stuff and finished the year with 104 strikeouts in 92.2 innings. In 2023, he dominated early in the season and put together a career year, with a 4.11 ERA over 15 starts and 103 innings, as well as a 25.5% strikeout rate and career-low 6% walk rate. The 6-foot-2, 190-pound lefthander throws from a deceptive and low, three-quarter slot and is able to locate his low-90s fastball well to either side of the plate. He averaged 89-91 mph on the pitch this spring and touched 94, and will need to be able to spot the pitch with precision at the next level to keep hitters off of it consistently. His best offering is a high-spin slider in the low 80s, which boasted a 42% miss rate, and it was an equal opportunity bat-misser against both righties and lefties—though given his arm slot and sweepy shape, it should be more consistent in same-side matchups in pro ball. He mixes in a mid-80s changeup with some tumbling action that should be a key pitch for him to prevent platoon advantages in pro ball. O’Halloran doesn’t have the loudest pure stuff, but he could develop into a touch-and-feel back-end starter if he can add a few more ticks of velocity.
