Scouting Report: Few pitchers in the draft can light up a radar gun like McCormick, who has touched 98 mph and rarely has been below 92 mph this spring. But like many of Scott Boras' players in this draft, McCormick's stock is dropping--and it's not just because of Boras. McCormick lacks a quality second pitch. His curveball and changeup are just so-so offerings, and he tends to stick with fastballs and splitters. For all his velocity, McCormick gets hit more often than he should and doesn't have the smoothest arm action. More troubling to scouts has been a tendency to lose his composure on and off the field. While McCormick has raised red flags, it's still hard to imagine him lasting beyond the first round. Neither he nor Everts is likely to follow through on scholarship offers from Baylor.
