Righthander Rocky McCord emerged as the second-best pitcher in the state behind Clay Holmes, after Chris Ellis was injured this spring. McCord could be headed to college and could jump right into Auburn's weekend rotation. He's a winner, pitching atop Spanish Fort High's rotation the last two seasons and leading the team to back-to-back 5-A state championships, earning 10 wins this spring. His wiry build and quick arm produce a fastball with average velocity and above-average life, especially down in the zone. His changeup has similar life and has above-average potential. His slider was below-average early, then showed improvement, enough for scouts to see him as a three-pitch guy. None of his pitches is above-average, though, and some scouts aren't sure he'll have the durability to start long-term. He has deep ties to Auburn and will be a tough sign.
