After throwing 32 innings and posting a 3.06 ERA during his freshman season, Casey underwent Tommy John surgery in 2015 which kept him out for the entirety of the 2016 season. Since returning in 2017, Casey has posted a sub-4.00 ERA in back-to-back seasons and struck out a career-high 106 batters this spring, while walking 25. He pitches in the 88-93 mph range with his fastball, with a solid changeup and a fringe-average breaking ball.
