McCann is a 6-1, 195 lb right handed pitcher from Missouri with a strong, athletic body. He has a smooth, easy arm action from a standard 3/4's release point. McCann's delivery mechanics are pretty good and balanced, although he tends to open early and fall off a bit on release like most young pitchers. McCann threw 80-81 mph and his fastball looked heavy down in the strike zone. He varied the speed and break on his slider between the low and mid 70's, with the slower slider having a larger, wider break. Both were pretty good pitches. We've seen McCann throw much harder in the past and suspect that he's had a busy spring and summer and has got lots of innings under his belt. Everything else was working well with his delivery and arm, though. Good follow. Good student.

Chad McCann is a 2006 RHP/3B from Chesterfield, Missouri, with a 6'1", 195 lb. frame. He throws from a 3/4 arm slot with a balanced delivery. He stays over his leg well with good leverage, and throws down hill well. McCann's fastball topped out at 86 mph with good tailing life and sink, while working at 83-86 mph. He throws a good 11 to 5 curveball with tight spin. McCann also mixes in a change up at 77 mph with sinking action and the pitch has a chance to be very good. He threw his change up a little hard, and might have actually been a split finger fastball. McCann throws strikes and has a good idea on the mound. He also took some swings at the plate. He is a right handed hitter with good weight transfer in his swing, and McCann has solid bat speed. McCann has the arm and tools to be successful at the next level, and is a solid follow. Chad is a good student.
