5/24/15 - Lean projectable body with a quick arm at a low ¾ slot. His FB was 88-92 with tailing life and his CV was 74-76 mph with a sweeping break that occasionally breaks both planes. Had some effort in his delivery but another big arm from the left side. Has made a jump this Spring in velocity and has attracted many scouts. Has recently de-committed from Charleston Southern and should be a decent draft.

3/4/15 - Charleston Southern signee. 6-foot-2, 170 pound lefty with a thin wiry athletic body and a very quick arm. Opened a lot of eyes tonight in front of a lot of scouts in this matchup against Thaddeus Ward. Topping out at 87 mph a couple of weeks ago, he dialed it up a few notches going 89-93 mph with plus life and the makings of a plus slider at 77-79 mph.  The changeup was also a serviceable pitch. Straight, but with arm speed at 84-85 mph. He will get a lot of attention the rest of the way.
2/21/15 - Charlston Southern commit. 6-foot-2, 165 pound lefty with a lean, wiry and athletic body with a quick arm. Fair arm circle and limited extension out front with upright finish and post.  Not pretty, but he is live and athletic. Fastball was 84-87 mph with plus life.  Only threw one curve ball and it missed wide with a solid ¾ tight rotation and some depth. Could become a 2015 draft.

4/4/18 -6’1/190, Red-shirt sophomore- Athletic southpaw with an electric arm (video below). Fastball was up to 98 early in the game, pitched at 92-95 with some sink at the lower velocities. Maintained both his comfort zone and top end velocities as he reached back for a couple 97s in the fifth inning on 0-2 and 2-2 counts, while attempting to put-away a hitter. During the fourth through sixth innings, he showed an impressive ability to pitch with his fastball down and in to right-handed hitters, keeping them off-balance, off the plate and a bit fearful. Mixed in a 79-84 mph slurve, with the best ones thrown at 82-83 mph. Occasionally he dropped his hand, slowed his arm and got on the side of the ball, twisting his wrist as opposed to slightly cocking it and pressuring his index finger to create the slider spin. This should be an easy correction as he continues to progress with his development and should also allow him to throw the pitch with greater velocity. With that said, his current breaking pitch was effective, generating many swing/misses. For the evening, he struck out 12 hitters in six innings; seven via slider and five with fastballs. He also threw a handful of changeups at 84-88 mph, showing fastball arm speed and inducing one swing/miss. Regardless of Tommy John surgery during his freshman season, McClanahan should be selected in the top half of the first round and will begin his pro career as a starting pitcher. His durability and aptitude for pitch development will ultimately determine his best role.

3/28/18 -6’2/185, Red-shirt sophomore. The left-hander showed his electric arm in the first inning, seemingly having two different gears on the fastball. Had a two-seam fastball at 92-94 mph with some late action and a four-seam that was 96-98 mph with late, riding life. His arm is loose, whippy and very quick. Coming into this game, he had not given up a run all season, but lost command in the second inning and gave up six runs, including a pair of home runs. He settled in some, but never showed great command of the fastball. It stayed 93-96 for his four innings of work. He has a long, lanky frame that one could see adding strength. His fastball is presently a plus pitch and could be a double plus pitch in the future. Both offspeed pitches were below average this evening. Showed more of a feel for the straight change-up, ranging 85-87 mph, that garnered some swing and miss. The slider had a sweeping action and ranged from 81-85 mph. When the pitch was 84 or 85 mph it was better, with tighter spin and later action. Not his best outing, but he may have the quickest arm and best fastball in the country with minimal effort. The offspeed will need to improve, but there is some feel and shape. Overall, he has an extremely high ceiling as a rare lefty with upper-90s fastball velocity.

2/22/18 -Competed well, throwing six scoreless innings with 11 strikeouts and five walks. Also showed the velocity he is well-known for, hitting 99 on the radar gun several times. He made a concerted effort to dial it back and throw strikes, working in the 89-94 range early in counts before letting it loose and getting 96-98 when he wanted. The changeup was his second best pitch, showing solid arm speed while throwing it to contact against righthanded hitters. It is not a swing/miss or out pitch, but was useable for keeping the hitters off his fastball. His sweepy slider was 83-86 early, then more 80-82 as the game progressed. It is a work in progress, currently lacking power and tight rotation, yet he uses it effectively.
