While scouts were excited to Peter Solomon pitch at Notre Dame after a strong summer in the Cape Cod League, it was Bielak who the Irish relied on as a starter. Unfortunately for Bielak and Notre Dame, his junior year was easily the worst of his college career as he posted a 5.55 ERA. Bielak is generally around the zone with his 88-93 mph fastball and he sinks it and his changeup has some deception. But he doesn't have a swing-and-miss offering and his breaking ball needs to be better. Many scouts think he could be more effective in a relief role as a pro.
