    McClure has been a fixture in the Louisville rotation, going a perfect 12-0, 2.54 as a midweek starter in 2016 and 7-3, 3.24 on the weekend this year. At his best, he can baffle with above-average control and angle on his pitches. As a 6-foot-7 righthander with good extension, McClure's 89-92 mph fastball plays a little better than its velocity and he works very well to the edges of the plate. His breaking ball is average at best, but it's effective because he locates it well. He shows confidence in his fringe-average changeup as well, giving him three fringe-average to average offerings he can throw anywhere in the count. McClure lacks massive upside, but his durability and reliability makes him a solid day two pick.
