Scouts got excited about McGough, the son of a former Indians farmhand, after he went 5-2, 2.45 last spring and then had a successful summer with Team USA. His results (4.28 ERA in 29 appearances) haven't matched his stuff this season pitching out of the Ducks bullpen, which has puzzled scouts. He isn't physical at 6-foot-1 and 185 pounds, but he's the best athlete on the staff and has a quick, loose arm. He pitches at 92-94 mph with his fastball and can run it up to 96. Oregon tried to add a curveball and a changeup to McGough's arsenal this year, but he decided to focus on developing one wipeout pitch instead of three average offerings. His go-to strikeout pitch is an 82-84 mph slider that has been inconsistent this spring, but he can throw it for strikes. McGough can get caught between breaking balls, but his slider has the chance to be above-average. His pure stuff, solid track record and competitive makeup give him the potential to work at the back end of a bullpen.
