PG Grade: 10
McGee combines excellent pitchability with a deceivingly quick 87-89 mph fastball and plenty of projectablity. We’re thinking that some scouts and coaches might have missed him at the PG National because he pitched in the last game on the last day. Even at that, he saved his best stuff for his third inning of work, when most pitchers tend to peak early in their showcase outings. McGee just kept getting better and throwing harder; there’s no telling what he would have done with another inning. McGee uses a stylish left handed mid ¾’s delivery that he repeats very well. He threw in the 84-86 mph range the first inning he was on the mound but was pumping steady 88-89 mph with good sinking action throughout the 3rd inning and given his arm looseness and projectable strength, it’s easy to see him being a guy who can pitch with a consistent 90+ mph fastball. McGee throws an upper 70’s change up that has sharp late biting action, almost like he’s turning over a two-seam fastball a little extra. Throw in a 68 mph big sweeping curveball and McGee already has a solid three-pitch arsenal. We would like to see more velocity on the breaking ball, but it's there when he decides to use it. The most important factor in McGee’s development will be his developing some sort of slider or hard slurve to compliment his other pitches. There’s no reason with his arm or delivery that this can’t happen and happen quickly. With a hard breaking ball to work with what he already has, there’s no reason that McGee can’t become a very successful pitcher and potential high draft right away. He definitely put his name on the national map in Lincoln. We expect everyone will be paying close attention to the 6'2 lefty from Sparks, NV. His arm sure works beautifully. Jacob is a good student.
