Scouting Report

5/30/14 McKay saw his pursuit of the all-time national consecutive scoreless innings record end at 72 2/3 innings when West Allegheny was able to push across two runs against him in the 4th inning. McKay showed similar numbers to previous outings this spring sitting 88-90 while touching 91 with his fastball. His curveball sat 76-78 all night and showed above average two-plane action in the early innings.

5/6/14 McKay sat 88-90 early out of a controlled, rhythmic high 3/4 arm slot. His fastball showed solid arm side run and late life. McKay also fashioned a cutter at 83-85 and a straight changed that he used infrequently at 79-81. McKay utilized his 1/7 breaking curveball routinely in the middle innings before going back to the fastball late. The lefty touched 90 as late as the 6th inning and still was 87-88 in the 7th in finishing off a 1-hit shutout that extended his consecutive scoreless innings streak to 58 innings.
