Deck McGuire is a 2007 right hand pitcher from Deep Run HS, residing in Richmond, VA. He is big and completely noticeable when you walk into a yard, with that big, long body and wide shoulders that set atop his 6'6" 225 lb. frame. McGuire was one of the more interesting guys to scout and was ranked #62 among PG National Top 85 pitchers. He throws hard now and even at 6'6", he still has some projection left. Realistically he could be 6'6" 245-250 someday and blow 93-94 mph. McGuire pitches from a 3/4 slot, somewhat lower than you might expect from a 6'6" pitcher. His arm works pretty well and he works with pretty minimal effort. His arm speed is good and the ball comes out pretty easily. For such a large young pitcher, he does a nice job of keeping his delivery on line and stays balanced. McGuire has good command and a good idea of how to pitch and approach hitters. He gets downhilll with is stuff and did a nice job of mixing pitches. His upper 80s fastball can be heavy, capable of getting a lot of ground balls. He topped out at 91 so there is clearly some arm strength there. Of his two breaking balls, his big 77-79 mph slider is the better of the two. It has big sweeping action and with his slot, he can start it at a RH hitters hip and still sweep it down and away or off the plate, depending on where he starts on the rubber. His 11/5 shaped curveball was 69-71 mph. His slot is simply better for the slurvy slider. though he is a primary pitcher, McGuire takes a good hack and showed some whippy life with good bat speed. He is a top D1 program prospect and will be on the follow lists of his area scouts this spring. If he starts pitching in the 90-92 range this spring, look for him to go in the early part of the first day of the draft.
PG Grade 9.5
