6/27/18

5-foot-10, 165-pound right-handed hitting first baseman and pitcher. On the mound, the fastball touched 77 mph. The spin pitch is 66-68 mph, big in shape, needs to be shortened to add velocity to the pitch. The changeup is a work in progress at 68-69 mph. Showcased a knuckle ball that has good rotation and spin, sat at 57 mph. The delivery is online with his feet, plus ¾ in slot. The tracking of the front shoulder and controlling the glove side need to be improved for a spike in stuff, currently he is stretched out at foot strike. He does compete and attacks hitters, showed that in his outing. Positionally, ran a 8.25 sixty on the laser at the event. Threw 77 mph from first base across the diamond. The feet around the bag are solid and showed good feel with the glove. The bat has a tee exit velocity of 80 mph. Starts with his base even, slightly open with the front foot. The front foot has a big lift to it, and he gains distance to the ball as it approaches the hitting zone. The path is casted out and around to contact, needs better direction to the ball.


Tee Exit Velocity- 80 mph
INF Velocity -77 mph
 
3/6/18

5-foot-10, 165-pound, average athletic frame, lower half is strong, shoulders are squared off and back is wider. A right-handed pitcher, throws all three pitches for strikes out of a ¾ to high ¾ slot. The delivery is simple, the hands start and stay high throughout, gets to a good gather, slight coil, with the hip leading down the mound, stride has some length to it and lands in line with target. The arm has average length to it on the backside, a down to up path. The fastball was clocked at 76-77 mph, 4-seamer was located to glove, with 2-seamer having some sink to it as it arrived at the plate. The change up showed to be his top secondary offering, had proper spin and shape to it, with action to the arm side, clocked at 68 mph. Threw two different breaking balls, a curveball at 61-62 mph and a slider at 66 mph. The slider showed to have more depth, with small horizontal break. Times to the plate are quick at 1.16, used a quick ¾ kick to get things moving. The backside lower half was strong out of windup and when he threw fastballs, set position had a small collapse and while he threw offspeed pitches. Overall look for the velocity to continue to climb, the ability to throw the change for strikes is a weapon.

5-foot-9, 159 pounds, solid build, capable of adding strength. Good footwork at first base, agile around the bag. Clocked with a throwing velocity at 72 mph, which could increase as he currently short arms his throws. Mechanical adjustment could unlock a few ticks. Offensively, McGrail has a slight bend at the knees with even feet at the plate. He employs a leg kick, sets hands letter high, and rotates his hips and with it the bat gets through the zone. Level swing path with orientation toward line drives to middle-pull side. Good swings but nothing to show for it, faced high-end pitching all morning. Continued strength gains could help bolster his power profile as a first base prospect.

Home-First: 5.32

Exit Velocity: 73 MPH

Arm Velocity: 72 MPH
 


3/7/17

5-foot-9, 180-pound, thick, athletic frame, shoulders are squared off. A right-handed hitting first baseman. At the plate the stance is even, feet are slightly wider than shoulder width. The hands are loose at shoulder height, bat starts in a good flat position just above back shoulder. The lower half is under control, has a small easy leg kick for timing, hands and weight get back. The front foot leaks out and in return the hands cast early disrupting the path to the baseball. The approach is more to pull side. Staying closed longer will help keep the hands inside the baseball, approach to baseball will be more direct, quicker, with ability to drive it to all fields. Defensively, showed soft hands at first base, with a clean transfer to throwing arm. Showed two different arm paths, one from his ear and another longer path. The arm was clocked at 63 mph across the diamond, had good touch. Strength and conditioning is a must, will aid in his development.

Sixty-Yard Dash: 9.5

Exit Velocity: 73 mph

Arm Velocity: 63 mph
