Scouting Report

Maclin has a wiry, projectable frame at 6-foot-2, 150-pounds, with plenty of room to add strength in the next couple of years. The right-hander works from a high slot with a quick arm swing. Athletic lower half finish, even though he varies his delivery at times. Fastball has tilt at 85-87 mph, to go with a good downer shape on his curveball that he threw for strikes at 67-69 mph.

At 6-foot-1, 150-pounds, Maclin has plenty of room to add size and strength as he continues to develop. The right-hander works from a high-¾ slot with a long, loose arm swing and quick hand out front. His fastball started out at 84-86 in the first inning, touching 87 once. Velocity settled in at 83-85, with the occasional 86 and arm side run. Throws a sharp 70-72 mph curveball with 11/5 shape. Although his command will need to improve, the frame and arm action, along with his ability to spin a sharp curveball, suggest that Maclin will be an arm for college coaches to follow closely this spring. Final line, 2.2 IP, 3 H, 6 R, 3 ER, 5 K, 5 BB.

09.10.17 - 2020 RHP Cade Maclin has an athletic, projectable pitcher's frame at approximately 5-foot-11, 160-pounds. He works from a ¾ slot and throws a heavy sinking fastball at 80-82 mph, topping out once at 83 mph. His curveball has average shape as he was mostly on the side of the ball, but the pitch comes in at 71-73 mph. Struggle with his fastball command in the first inning with three walks, but Maclin is certainly a player we want to see again.
