Possessing a power pitcher’s frame, Chargois only began pitching during his sophomore year at Rice, and since then has assumed a prominent role at the back end of the Owls’ bullpen.

Chargois’ delivery requires max effort, but that’s more of a result of his lack of experience and currently being more of a thrower than a pitcher. The right-hander’s fastball sits at 93-98 mph with late life, while his 85-87 mph slider serves as a legitimate out-pitch with plus potential.

He profiles as a closer at the next level due to his arsenal and deception, but he’ll have to improve his command to be successful. Considering how well he’s adapted to his role on the mound, there’s reason to believe that Chargois will continue to make steady improvements. If that’s ultimately the case, he has the potential to move quickly and could reach the big leagues by late 2013 or early 2014.
