Brendan McKay’s Scouting Report

Throughout his first two years at Louisville, McKay has proven to be a solid, top-end starter with potential to carry an entire rotation. With a combined 21-7 record to go along with an impressive 2.05 ERA, he has done nothing but continue to boost his draft stock. McKay knows how to navigate through opposing lineups and keep runs off the board. In addition, he batted a whopping .320 through 435 at-bats through his first two years. Despite the fact that he will be drafted as a pitcher, look for a National League team to take a chance on both he and his hitting ability from the nine-hole.

Strengths:
Easy, repeatable delivery
Incredible command with his fastball
Breaking ball will fall off of a table
Attacks the strike zone
Cross-fire delivery hides the ball from the hitters a bit longer
Good size/frame
Hitting ability is always nice
Above-average athleticism

Weaknesses:
Won’t overpower any hitters
Tends to hang his curveball a bit too much
Needs to be able to better locate his 0-2 Curveballs

Scouting Grades: (Now/Potential) Scale: 2-8

Fastball: 6/7
Curveball: 5/6
Changeup: 5/6
Stamina: 4/6
