Left-handed pitcher Ryan Chasse was drafted by the Toronto Blue Jays in the 17th round of the 2022 MLB draft.

“I had heard from a couple teams before the draft, but nothing was guaranteed,” said Chasse. “I had heard from the Blue Jays during the second and third days and I was fortunate to get a call from the NC area scout in the 17th round.”

Pitching 41 2/3 innings for Campbell University in 2022; Chasse racked up 60 K’s and maintained a WHIP of 1.39. The lefty would later pitch an additional 14 2/3 innings for Brewster of the Cape Cod League before being drafted.

Finding success on the mound with a four-pitch mix of a fastball, a slider, a curveball, and a changeup; Chasse tries to establish his fastball early to work in his off-speed pitches.

“I try to establish my fastball in,” explained Chasse. “When my fastball is in, my other pitches work off of it.”

Chasse is thankful for his time at Campbell, “Playing at Campbell was a really great experience for me,” stated Chasse. “I played there for four years and was part of three championship seasons, got my degree, and learned a ton of lessons both in baseball and in life that will serve me well.”

Currently down in Florida, Chasse is enjoying all of the resources the Blue Jays’ have available to their players.

“The organization has been awesome so far,” said Chasse. “All of the facilities are top-top notch and the staff has been extremely welcoming and friendly. It has been a blast so far.”

Welcome Ryan Chasse!
