While Carasiti has served as St. John's Friday starter this season, he has less of a chance to stick in a rotation than his teammate, Kyle Hansen. Carasiti fits better in a relief role, which he filled for St. John's in 2011. In 60 innings this spring, he was 4-4, 4.03 with 49 strikeouts and 25 walks in 60 innings. He has a big body at 6-foot-3, 205 pounds and a quick arm that generates low-90s fastballs with downhill plane. However, he lacks command and consistent secondary stuff. His second pitch is a slider, and at times he'll snap one off that has sharp break to it, but most will come out flat. He has alternated between a changeup and splitter for a third pitch, but won't have much use for either if he moves to the bullpen. His frame and arm strength give him a good foundation, and he's a hard worker so scouts see upside if he can put it all together. He could go anywhere from the fourth to sixth round.
