Madrid was drafted out of high school as a catcher but attended McLennan (Texas) JC instead, working primarily as a pitcher. He has a strong 6-foot-1, 200-pound frame and thrived as Joe Rogers' set-up man at Central Florida, pounding the zone with a 91-94 mph fastball. He kept hitters honest with a cutter-type slider that at times reaches 87 mph. Madrid has proven durable as well, working more than half of UCF's games (28 of its first 55) while maintaining his stuff throughout the year.
