6'4 doesn't hurt. Didn't see much written about him anywhere.

6 IP, 2 walks 6 strikeouts and no hits today for Columbia in a combined no hitter.

He's 22 so maybe a little old for the league. Anyone have a scouting report?

But while the Mets aren’t betting on McIlraith’s performance, the scouting reports are a little more encouraging. He’s solidly built at 6-foot-4 and 205 pounds, and he typically throws in the low 90s with a fastball that has a little bit of sink to it. His breaking ball, a short slider is fringe-average, but his best secondary pitch is a hard split he’ll throw in the mid-80s. It has some nice downward bite to it, and when he locates the pitch well it’s effective.

And that’s why the performance hasn’t been there: command. McIlraith just doesn’t have the ability to locate with enough skill to make his average stuff play up. The results are fastballs that miss the corners and splits that don’t get buried in the dirt. It’s made him at once more hittable than he should be and more wild.

He brings a short arm action, and houses it in a windup that offers some deception. He could probably maximize his stride a little more, and starting his momentum toward the plate a little earlier could help, but the mechanics are mostly clean.

Interesting scouting report. Way too early but could be a bullpen piece down the line
