Adam Macko
Name: Adam Macko
Born: Dec 30, 2000 in Stony Plain, Alberta CAN
High School: Vauxhall HS
Ht.: 6'0" / Wt.: 170 lbs
Bats: L / Throws: L
Drafted in the 7th round (216th overall) by the Seattle Mariners in 2019 (signed for $250,000)
A 6-foot, 180-pound lefthander, Macko is a stereotypical pitchability lefthander who doesn’t have the biggest pure stuff but has above-average command and knows how to spot his fastball—a rare trait for a prep pitcher. Last summer at the Area Code Games, Macko threw his fastball in the mid to upper-80s and showed a curveball with big depth and a 2400 rpm spin rate. His curveball and changeup are both solid secondaries that he has good feel to locate, and they could become plus pitches in the future as Macko gains weight and adds more strength and power to his game. He’s committed to Purdue, and he might have to get to campus before teams want to sign him out of the draft, without an average fastball.
