    McAvoy was a three-time state champion at Westhill High in Syracuse, N.Y., winning two baseball titles and one in basketball. He focused on baseball this spring and evolved into Bryant's ace, going 9-1, 2.62 this spring and helped Bryant to back-to-back regional trips. At his best, McAvoy gets good movement on his low-90s sinker and upper-70s slider. He's lacked an out pitch but improved his slider this season, helping improve his strikeout rate from 6.1 K/9 IP last season to 8.5 K/9 in 2014.
