Default Collin McHugh

He must be eating his Wheaties or something.

McHugh over his final 10 AA starts at Bingy:

7-0

56 innings
65Ks
13BB

hitters average against him...... .185 over that span

he's got multiple pitches and throws the 4 seamer at 91-94

turned 24 in mid-June


I don't know if he'll stay a starter, but maybe guys like this are the fastest, cheapest way to fix the bullpen.

91-94 you sure?
he does seem to have pitchability though.

I read that on the internets, so it has to be true. If not, then the woody factor goes down a lot.

Toby's site the other day it was 89-92 with topping out at 93. Still better then last year though.

Fastball: 89-92 with some glove side run, topping out at 93 once or twice. Commanded it well in, out, up and down. Last year his fastball was mostly 87-90.

Like they said, I kind of see a back-end starter out of him, but that's fine.

I want a cheap bullpen. So, back end starter works for me.

Like they said, I kind of see a back-end starter out of him, but that's fine.
From that scouting report:

Quote:
◦6’2, 195 lbs. A better athlete than what he looks. He could add more muscle to his frame, soft body.

◦Unorthodox motion. Very long on the arm take back, but gets his arm up in plenty of time as his front foot plants.

He has cleaned his mechanics, which has helped him gain some velocity to his FB.
◦Repeats his mechanics very well with little effort at release. Gets momentum going to the target, helping him throw strikes consistently.

Over the top delivery. Gets good downward plane with extension to the plate.

◦Fastball: 89-92 with some glove side run, topping out at 93 once or twice. Commanded it well in, out, up and down. Last year his fastball was mostly 87-90.
After looking at the footage of him pitching and reading this report, I'm struck that they didn't mention his profound lack of leg drive in his delivery. Though perhaps they had that in mind with the bullets I bolded above. I just don't see evidence of improved legdrive in any of the foot that was posted.

At any rate, this guy could add yet more velocity if he incorporated better legdrive into his delivery. Sounds like a robust conditioning program would do this guy wonders.

The typical angle from CF and there were others too from the front/side. Otherwise his delivery looked fluid and efficient to me.

Looks like he really has an idea about pitching and his curveball has very good drop and he appears to use it as his out pitch.
