The Skinny:
As a sophomore Pettigrew was a varsity contributor for Mount Carmel, which finished runner-up in Class 4A. He saw limited action because he was stuck behind arguably the state's best infield, which was comprised of all Division 1 athletes. Nevertheless, Pettigrew is a highly projectable infielder, one who features a level, athletic swing with bat speed. He also possesses plenty of arm strength to play on the left side of the infield - he was clocked at 85 mph last fall. Long and rangy, Pettigrew has an athletic frame, one that should continue to add strength in the coming years.
