McMahan is 6-foot, 175-pounds, has a long torso and muscular frame. Ran a 7.47 60-yard dash, had a clean round of BP working back up the middle with firm contact, recorded 92 mph exit velocity off the tee. Linear actions behind the plate, smooth transfer and got good carry on the ball at 78 mph. Pop times in the 1.97-2.15 range.

McMahan has added strength and muscle to his 6-foot, 175-pound frame this fall. The right-handed hitter took a solid round of BP, lacing balls through the middle of the field with gap power. Starting from a tall stance, he loads with a slight toe-tap and really gets into his front side with an explosive lower half transfer. Hands work with lag through the zone and snap to finish on a mostly flat path with a 92 mph exit velocity. Athletic lower half behind the plate allows for good mobility. Arm works well to throw with a top velocity from the crouch of 78 mph and pop times of 2.0-2.14.

McMahan is an athletic back stop with a quality feel for the position. Receives at a high level with strong hands, blocks well from side to side, and has quick footwork on throws to second base. His pop times ranged from 1.97-2.26 with a top velocity from the crouch of 77 mph. Clean exchange into a slightly longer arm swing with regular effort. At the plate, McMahan starts from an open stance with his feet set flat, then loads back as he picks his hands up and strides closed, transferring his weight to his front foot. Leveraged hack with gap power and lift, the right-handed hitter gets the most out of his 6-foot, 170-pound frame, creating a top exit velocity of 89 mph.

Athletic 6-0, 170-pound frame.  McMahan received well in the bullpen sessions showing quiet glove actions while receiving and stuck the ball well in the zone.  He showed hip mobility in his blocking and receiving, and came out of his stance with athleticism while throwing, blocking, and making a play on a bunt.  He flashed carry on his throws topping out at 77 mph, and his pop times ranged from 2.04-2.15 seconds. He made hard contact in BP with an early load out of an athletic stance at the plate.  He has his hands high, and loads them higher during the load/stride phase of his swing. He swings with intent to drive the baseball, and he has a high finish in his swing, which creates some natural lift and carry to balls off his barrel.  He hit the ball hard from line to line, and shows true gap to gap extra-base hit power potential. McMahan’s work ethic showed in how he approached the handling of live pitchers during the bullpen sessions, as he worked hard to present balls well and to shift and block balls outside of his frame.  High energy catcher with upside. McMahan ran a 7.62 laser-timed 60.
