8/10/13 - As he did at the Top Prospect Games in June, the 5-foot-11, 170-pound McHugh stole the show again from an arm strength standpoint.  In June he ripped off throws of 89 mph across the infield.  This time he let it fly at 92.  He has athletic feet, soft hands, plays through the ball well, and not only does he have a cannon for an arm, it is accurate as well.  At the plate, the right-handed McHugh hits from a slightly open and athletic stance with a short stride, has an aggressive approach, and while he showed good bat speed with an 89 mph tee exit velocity, he went 0-for-4 in game play, though he did make hard contact a few times.  He registered a 4.34 home to first time. On the mound, uses long arm action through a ¾ arm slot, fastball shows big arm-side run at 84-86 mph and touched 87, slider is a swing and miss pitch which he shows good command of at 74-77 mph with late bite, changeup is thrown with good arm action at 73-74 mph with significant run and sink.  There is no doubt McHugh is one of the top uncommitted arms in Kentucky’s 2014 class.
