WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE
After a string of overdrafts on day two, the Pirates started day three of the 2022 draft with yet another.  Perachi, who’s from Australia, wasn’t among MLB.com’s top 250 draft prospects nor Baseball America’s top 500.  The team also continued a pattern of taking pitchers from obscure schools, in this case Division III Salve Regina U. of the little-known Commonwealth Coast Conference.  After posting a 5.28 ERA in his sophomore year, Perachi dominated in his junior season, going 9-1 in 11 starts with an ERA of 1.00, and an 0.89 WHIP and 15.1 K/9.  He also pitched very well in summer 2022 in the New England Collegiate Baseball League; selecting pitchers who’ve done well in summer ball is another pattern with the Pirates’ front office.  Perachi added some muscle before his junior season and his fastball reaches 93 mph, with some projection remaining.  He throws a high-spin curve from two different angles and adds a change.

Perachi was one of the Pirates’ more interesting draft picks in 2022, but he didn’t debut before the end of the season.
