MacLean is one of the most interesting pitching prospects in the Northwest and was a pick to click this year for many area scouts. A classic projection lefthander, MacLean is command-oriented with a clean delivery and a track record of throwing strikes going back to his time pitching in the 2015 Little League World Series. Over the summer at the Area Code Games, MacLean showed a fastball that ranged from 83-87 mph, with a 69-74 mph curveball that had big, 12-to-6 shape. While both pitches needed more power, MacLean spun his curveball in the 2,500 rpm range and evaluators loved his feel for spotting up consistently and the potential in his lanky, 6-foot-2 frame. MacLean began trending in the right direction this spring and touched 92 mph with better pace to his curveball in bullpen sessions, but teams weren’t able to see any game action from MacLean this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. MacLean is a throwing partner with projected first-rounder Mick Abel and would have been seen frequently this spring under normal circumstances. Now with a shorter draft, it’s more likely teams let MacLean go to Washington and make his jump at school, although many scouts have already bought into his future upside.
