Carignan is a 27 year-old right handed middle relief pitcher. He holds a 4.50 ERA in 16 innings pitched in 2011-2012 with the A’s. He was originally drafted by the  Athletics in the 5th round of the 2007 MLB June Amateur Draft. He was a top prospect and holds the record for the most saves in the College World Series.

He underwent Tommy John surgery on July 5, 2012 and was expected to return mid-season in 2013 but spent the year still recovering.
