6-foot, 155-pound left-handed hitting outfielder and first baseman. Continues to improve each and every time we see him. Ran a 4.41 down the line on his dig to first base. Threw 75 mph from the outfield, the approach was aggressive and on point. He can play either corner outfield spot. The glove is solid around the bag at first. He has a feel for the position. Threw 72 mph across the diamond out of a long arm path. The bat has grown, tee exit velocity of 90 mph. The setup is wide in base, front foot steps into the swing. The path is long and flat through contact. The hands work well, power potential down the road as he continues to develop and get stronger.

INF Velocity- 72 mph
OF Velocity- 75 mph

7/17/18

5-foot-11, 152-pound, a long and lengthy athlete, has strength to his hands, with room to fill out, should be physical at some point. A left-handed hitting corner outfielder, better suited for left fielder. At the plate, stance is wider than shoulder width, feet are even. The hands are relaxed at shoulders, bat having tilt and is in a good loaded position. For timing has a clean pick up and put down with front foot, gets weight loaded on the back side. The swing is level across his chest finishes at shoulder height with one hand. The approach is more line drive, sprays the baseball from field to field. The tee exit velocity continues to improve, was up to 84 mph at this event, was clocked at 4.93 mph from home to first, long strides look for the speed to improve. Defensively, threw 76 mph out of a high ¾ slot from the outfield. The transfer is clean, steps through with back leg and gains ground. Throws were down hill and gave the receiver something to handle. At first base, arm was clocked at 71 mph across the diamond. The hands look to be soft on the catch, with feet moving towards target showed to have rhythm. Look for the bat to play at some point.

Home-First: 4.93
Exit Velocity: 84 MPH
Arm Velocity: OF-76 MPH, INF- 71 MPH

5-foot-11, 152 pounds, wiry frame, sloped shoulders, room to add upper body strength. Ran a 4.71 home-to-first. At the plate, McCarty’s stance is wide, with his lead leg on an angle and feet that set significantly further than shoulder width apart. He is even with a level swing path, line drive approach. Comfort hitting to all fields. Uses a toe tap as the hands gets set at shoulder height. His exit velocity off of the tee was recorded at 75 mph. In the outfield, he throws from a high ¾ slot. Actions are clean. Can work with more pace, transferring from fielding to throwing with more purpose. Outfield throws were clocked up to 66 mph on throw to home plate. McCarty also pitches, throwing from a normal ¾ slot from the left-hand side. Some deception in the delivery, as the ball disappears at the backside. Hands start and stay at the chest. Can work to develop more drive to effectively use his lower half. The fastball was 63-66 mph with tail. His curveball is 56-57 mph with an 11/5 shape. The changeup is developing at 54-57 mph and decent downward action. Adding velocity is a necessity to stick on the mound. Home-First: 4.71
