McCoy, a premium left-handed bat committed to Louisville, stood out like a sore thumb at the Wabash Valley Scout Day during his freshman season in the fall of 2020. He followed that up with a .379/.490/.734, 13-homer performance as a freshman and continued to rake (.267/.439/.450 with 41 BB) in the MLB Draft League this past summer. The 6-foot-3, 215-pounder employs a pro approach, showing advanced plate discipline and feel for the strike zone as well as excellent pitch-recognition skills. What's more, McCoy consistently impacts the ball with a clean, leveraged swing, showing effortless power to the big parts of the field. Altogether, he's a no-doubt Power 5 talent with Top 10 round draft potential.

When you hit left-handed, run a 6.88 sixty, have a strong, accurate arm, wear the tools of ignorance and slightly resemble Joe Maurer at 6-foot-3, 210 pounds scouts tend to take notice. And that’s just what they did as McCoy put on a show with his throws to 2nd base with POP times in the 1.9s and strong accuracy. At the plate, the lefty hitter has some leverage to his swing for developing power, but it’s ultimately his size, athleticism and defensive tools that provide the foundation for his value as a pro prospect.
