Drafted in the 4th round (120th overall) by the Toronto Blue Jays in 2006 (signed for $155,000)
One of the more attractive senior signs in the 2006 draft, Magee could have gone in the eighth to 12th round a year ago if scouts had had a better feel for his signability. The extra year has helped him. He has gotten stronger and his stuff has improved. His fastball is up a tick to 89-94 mph with good life down in the zone and his slider is up to 81-84 mph with increased bite. He's commanding his pitches better as well. Magee also employs a changeup, and on his best days all three of his pitches will be average or better. He's just five strikeouts short of Bradley's career record of 262, which has stood since 1957. Magee's long, lean 6-foot-5, 190-pound frame continues to draw comparisons to Matt Clement's, though scouts don't care for his maximum-effort delivery. He's one of the oldest players in the draft, as he'll turn 23 in late July. A team looking for a senior discount without sacrificing much in the way of talent could take him as early as the fourth or fifth round.
