Perfect Game Profile

McCullers, whose father of the same name played seven years in the big-leagues, is an elite-level pitcher with three potential plus pitches. He uses a long, loose arm action to throw all of his pitches on a good downhill angle. His fastball velocity is the best in the class, sitting at 94-96 mph while reaching 98. McCullers also throws a power curveball and a sinking changeup. Offensively, he swings aggressively with a power approach, showing good bat speed and extension. Perfect Game ranks McCullers #1 nationally among all players.
