Carignan was named the Cape's 22nd best prospect by PG Crosschecker. A shorter righty at 5'11", Carignan makes up with that with a strong, sturdy frame and a power arsenal, even if that arsenal isn't as dynamic as some of the more notable college closers available for the 2007 draft. He pitches regularly in the low-90s, can touch the mid-90s, and mixes in a very nice, hard curveball. He has a no-nonsense delivery, and a very aggressive approach on the mound that makes him a perfect candidate to close at any level. Carignan paced the ACC in saves last year for the CWS runner-up UNC Tar Heels with 15, and he closed two more games while in Omaha. He has been effective from the moment he stepped on UNC's campus, and was a Cape All-Star last summer despite not receiving as many accolades as his closing peers.
