Junior year at Long Beach State

0.89 ERA
0.91 WHIP
50.2 innings
33 hits
5 ER
13 BB
74 Strikeouts

The numbers stand out big time

He is basically the opposite of the previous pick

His numbers are ridiculous. The only catch is that his fastball sits 89-92, so it's hard to envision him as a late inning guy.


depending on arm slot

From video, looks like he's three quarters.

Throw a Gregerson on him. You know you want to. It'll feel goooood.






Ok I'll just do it: Seems like a Luke Gregerson type.

na, was just saying if the guy threw like 90 but threw like bradford then thats the reason why he has great numbers

I bet there are a lot of great pitchers out there who dont throw 95. Lots of value available. Great if the Mets are thinking broadly. Many teams, I imagine, just look at numbers.

Tommy Tanous said all of the pitchers selected so far should have an opportunity to start..


I'm surprised if this applies to McGeorge.

Tanous just tweeted at me during the draft to say that McGeorge will be starting and relieving this year.

@WexlerRules @Austin_mcgeorge @fangraphs McGeorge is not the sexiest pick, but he has a great chance of making it as a middle reliever.

I think he's very attractive.

Chris Mitchell:

McGeorge was left off of both Baseball America’s top 500 draft prospects and Minor League Ball’s top 650 draft prospects, but KATOH likes what it sees in the 6-foot-2 righty. McGeorge was lights-out out of Long Beach State’s bullpen, striking out 76 and walking 14 in 53 innings without allowing any homers. Sure, McGeorge is a one-inning reliever, but very few pitchers put up numbers like those in a top conference.
