McDougal was the most interesting arm of the day and kicked things off by going head-to-head against the top hitting prospects in the state. At 6-foot-5, 200-pounds, the big right-hander has a frame that scouts dream of including wide, broad shoulders, long limbs, and room for much more strength to be developed in the future. He worked exclusively out of the stretch over the course of two innings, and was more effectively wild in the zone than in command of his pitches. The arm works freely through a continuous stroke with impressive quickness out front as he delivers from a high ¾ slot while getting quality extension out front. The fastball jumps on the plate thanks to high spin rates that ran up close to 2600 rpm on the heater. He moves efficiently throughout, and there is a chance that he continues to see the velocity increase as he gets stronger. While the breaking ball was inconsistent in shape, it tunneled best when thrown with depth off the fastball though the sharpest break came in 10/4, slurve-like shape at 74-76. The pitch is tightly spun with upwards of nearly 3000 rpm, and there is obvious aptitude for spin that future pitch design sessions will allow for likely immediate advancements. Intriguingly, McDougal also showed quality feel for a faded changeup, thrown for strikes at an average speed of 86.59 mph, that he comfortably threw to right-handed hitters. McDougal competed and was eager to attack each hitter while entertaining challenges. His upside is likely to be valued moving forward, and given the friendly Trackman metrics, MLB clubs will be monitoring him closely.
