Solid build, high three-quarter slot, good armspeed out front. FB sat 85-87, touching 88 and had armside action when down in the zone. Flashed a plus 12/6 CB that sat low-70s early, but got up to 74-75 with tight rotation when he really got the feel for it going. Showed a solid change-up with potential that he just learned three weeks prior.


Selected to participate in the 2016 Area Code Games.

2020 DRAFT:McCambley found his groove this summer in the Cape, thrusting himself into early round consideration with a strong showing against top competition (1-0, 1.74 ERA, 20.2 IP, 15 H, 7 BB, 24 SO). He carried that momentum into the first part of the season, sitting at 3-1, 1.80 with 11.52 SO/9 when the season was cancelled. The 6-foot-1, 210-pound strong bodied righty pairs a fastball up to 96 mph with a knockout breaking ball. Even when the command of his 81-83 mph hard curveball isn't spot on, he's able to generate swings and misses due to the abrupt, late action of the pitch which spins at 2750-2900 rpm. It's a swing/miss pitch that hasn't allowed an XBH in his collegiate career with a 62% swing/miss rate and 20% chase rate this spring. Pitching from a high three-quarter slot, he sets up the breaker with a 92-94 mph high-spin fastball (2700 rpm range) that he's able to elevate in the zone with riding action. As a third pitch, the righthander mixes in an occasional low-80s changeup to left-handed hitters. He works with an abbreviated, side-saddle delivery with a high knee lift and minimal hip load. There is fair deception and some effort to his delivery, but he keeps his head level and the arm is quick. McCambley profiles as a starter at the next level and should receive top three round consideration this summer.

8/19/19:After making 27 appearances and 11 starts with a 5.21 ERA this spring for the Chants, McCambley found his groove this summer in the Cape and showed improvement fromOpening Weekend in 2018. During his fifth and final start of the summer at Bourne, the 6-foot-1, 210 pound strong bodied righty threw five and one-third shutout innings, pairing a fastball up to 95 mph with his signature knockout breaking ball. Although the command of his 81-83 mph hard curveball came and went, he was able to generate continuous swing/miss due to the abrupt, late action of the pitch. Good hitters repeatedly chased it out of the zone, some even swinging as it bounced in front of the plate. He set up the breaker with a 92-94 mph high-spin fastball. Many were thrown up in the zone (McCambley is an elite spin rate arm) with riding action, and when located down at the knees, the pitch showed good down angle from his three-quarter slot. As a third pitch, McCambley mixed in an occasional 81 mph changeup to left-handed hitters. He works with an abbreviated, side-saddle, delivery with a high knee lift and minimal hip load. Sets up on the first base side of the rubber, drives early to the plate, lands soft, upright and slightly open. There is fair deception and some effort to his delivery, but he keeps his head level and his arm is quick. The sequencing of his delivery could be improved and he could also ride his backside, using his lower half more in his delivery. With a summer of high performance under his belt (1-0, 1.74 ERA, 20.2 IP, 15 H, 7 BB, 24 SO) look for McCambley to join an already impressive group of college starters who will be considered for the top few rounds of the 2020 draft. (Seifert)

2/22/18 - 6’1/205, Freshman. Another good looking freshman arm for the Chants. Less projection than Peavyhouse, but McCambley is currently the better pitcher of the two. Fastball jumped out of his hand with good carry to the plate (high spin rate). Ranged from 90-93 mph. Hitters did not see or adjust to it well. Also threw an above average hard curveball ranging from 78-80 mph. Tight rotation with late break. Induced swing and miss with both pitches. Struck out four in his two innings of work.
