The first thing scouts noticed this spring about Magill was a nasty gash on the outside of his right elbow. Not to worry; it was the result of a minor car accident. Magill has an ideal tall, projectable frame. His fastball sits in the 88-90 mph range, but it's straight and hittable when left up in the zone. He'll need to develop sink and movement to succeed with his fastball at higher levels. He's a Cal Poly signee, and the school has had success with pitchers improving their velocity in college. Magill shows little feel for his curveball, but his slider projects as a potential plus offering and is easily his best pitch. In pregame bullpens, Magill experiments with a changeup that has both deception and late drop. Unfortunately, he uses the pitch sparingly in game action.
