5-foot-8, 175-pound with an athletic frame. He pitches only out of the stretch with a drop and drive delivery. Piranio has short and loose arm action from a high ¾ window. His arm works out front with quick arm speed. Throughout the entirety of his start, Piranio was pounding the zone on his arm side of the plate. His fastball sat 82-83 mph, touching 84 mph and plays with downhill tilt and arm side run. He does an excellent job maintaining his fastball’s arm speed while throwing his offspeed pitches. He showed feel for his slider that has 11/5 shape and late depth at 72-73 mph. The STiKS starter also mixed in a changeup at 77-78 mph that plays with both sink and fade.

5-foot-8, 175-pound right-handed pitcher and shortstop. Strong, compact frame. Started on the mound Thursday in one of the weekend’s most dominant pitching performances. Tossed a 13-strikeout complete game having allowed a single run and hit along the way. Fastball came out sitting in the 80-82 mph range, and it mostly stayed that way, dropping down to the occasional 78 late. The slider is an effective go-to offspeed that flashes late, and it clearly did its job throughout his outing.
