Coastal Carolina’s Friday night starter, McCambley is a 6-foot-1, 205-pound righthander with a loud two-pitch mix but some significant reliever concerns. He had moderate success in a hybrid role in 2018 and 2019 and made five starts in the Cape Cod League last summer to great success, posting a 1.74 ERA with 24 strikeouts and seven walks in 20.2 innings. McCambley has two plus pitches in his arsenal with a fastball that sits in the 92-94 mph range and regularly reaches 96-97. His breaking ball is another plus offering, and some scouts have thought about putting 70 grades on it. It’s sharp with late, downward bite and real wipeout potential. Coaches and evaluators have always wanted to see more out of McCambley’s changeup. The lack of a third pitch and a fast, upbeat tempo on the mound makes him a likely reliever in many scouts' eyes.. While McCambley’s delivery isn’t what teams typically look for in a starter, he’s thrown enough strikes to give himself at least a chance to start if he can find a third pitch.
