To his credit the younger McLain seems brush that aside and instead has made quite the name for himself. While where he'll play might still be in question, whether or not he will play is no question at all. McLain's bat continues be one of the best in Orange County, if not all of SoCal, in his class. He shows high level bat speed and a control of the barrel that separates him from his peers. His ability to get the barrel on the ball while being aggressively selective is impressive. He looks like he's going to shoot out of canon on each pitch, which is exactly what he does after he connects with the ball. His all around game has taken a step up since the end of the spring season. He's been one of the most consistent players in the region throughout what can be a long summer/fall season for players.

7/15/18 - McLain has seen his stock rise following an impressive junior season and has carried that momentum into the summer circuit. McClain shows pull-side power and a swing that consistently squared balls up during his batting practice. The hands are fast resulting in excellent present bat speed. Defensively he is hyper-athletic infielder with plus footwork and a borderline plus arm. He plays with very good body control. McClain did not play in the game because of a tweaked back.

3/18/18 – Uncommitted 5 foot 10 165 Jr. Medium sized athletic with room for growth. McLain displays an advanced approach and consistently takes professional quality at-bats. He is able to recognize and square up secondary pitches. Gap-to-gap power currently, McLain is likely to grow into his power tool with age and body maturity. McLain exhibits sound defensive action in the outfield and can track balls in the gap with ease. He has an above average arm, quick release with some carry and zip. McLain is an elite competitor that demonstrates excellent instincts and aptitude.

2/13/14 - Uncommitted. 5-foot-10, 165-pound frame, lean, wiry strong frame that projects for added strength through physical maturity. Coming off an injury that cost him all of last season, McLain is an advanced hitter that possesses many tools. Offensively, McLain shows a very good understanding of hitting and baseball situations. With one-out and a runner on second base he drove a ball to the right side on a changeup away that advanced the runner who scored on a base hit from the next batter. Using a slightly open stance and a slight toe-tap trigger, McLain drives his lower half into the ball to create loud contact. Stays balanced throughout swing ending with weight evenly distributed between front and backside. Defensively, McLain shows natural ability in the outfield where he takes good routes with his body under control. Shows present arm strength to make online throws to any bag.
