3/9/19:Six-foot-3, 230-pounds. Works from a high slot with some effort down the mound and slight head whack. Fastball was 90-92 mph with average life. Spun a 12/6 curveball at 79-82, and mixed in an 80-82 mph changeup. Got the last out of the fourth, and exited the game in the fifth after walking two batters. (Seifert)

8/1/18:Tall, strong bodied Texan with a big arm and good athleticism. At six-foot-three, 230 pounds and using a full arm path, he brought a mid-90s fastball from a high three-quarters, near over-the-top, slot. Despite lessened effort and improved direction in his delivery from his high schools days in Jasper, TX, McMillon is still more thrower than pitcher. He was highly inconsistent with his release point, causing him to scatter his 91-95 mph fastball. It was very true in the zone, but did show some ride when up. Manipulating the baseball did not come easy as his secondary pitches all showed below average; 74 mph curveball lacked depth, mostly flat 77-80 mph slider, limited feel for 85 mph changeup. Hitters eliminated every pitch except the fastball and sat on it. Was hit hard, allowing eight runs on four hits and four walks in one-plus inning; 53 pitches, 21 for strikes. Compounding the tough day, he was long to the plate (1.5 seconds) and didn’t hold runners well; allowed three stolen bases. Despite the tough day on the bump, McMillon continued to compete. Texas Tech is a player development machine and it would not be surprising to see McMillon develop a useable slider to go along with his mid-90s velo. The development of a secondary pitch and his overall control will determine how high he is selected in 2019. (Seifert)
