Drafted in the 12th round (348th overall) by the Chicago White Sox in 2018 (signed for $175,000)
A 35th-round pick of the Rangers out of Damien (La Verne, Calif.) High in 2015, Carranza spent two years at Oregon before transferring closer to home to Division II Azusa Pacific. He emerged as the top Division II prospect on the West Coast this spring, touching 97 mph and going 9-1, 3.89. Carranza has a prototypical pitcher's build at 6-foot-5, 200 pounds and a strong right arm. He sits 93-94 mph, touches 97 and has room to grow into more velocity with a still-projectable body. Carranza's secondaries are much further behind. His slider is below-average, and his curveball and changeup are get-me-over pitches. He also has trouble keeping the ball down in the zone. Carranza starts now but projects as a reliever long-term due to his lack of secondaries and poor fastball command. His arm strength has teams interested around the fourth round.
