Follow the Prospects: McKenzie Mills

Didn't find anything for him. We have crappy pitchers in our system, but he's having a fine season. Won his 8th for Hagerstown last night...7 innings, o runs, 8 SO, 2.41 ERA. Big lefty starter. Record 8-2.

I haven't been able to find anything about his stuff, and he's been in the system for 4 years.

I know he was raw coming out of high school. He walked 37 and struck out 92 in 55 innings. His perfect game profile had him up to 88 before he was drafted. That's the only thing I've ever seen in relation to his stuff.

The whip overall, particularly walks, is what stands out to me. His control has been an issue, so 13 walks in 74 innings is very impressive. Maybe he's finally getting in sync with his body and his mechanics are becoming consistent.

He doesn't turn 22 until after the year, so he's still got time. The results are looking positive. It's be nice to find a scouting report somewhere.

Bump him up to High A. Then he'd be "Potomac" Mills.

12-2 now. 7 innings  1 earned run   Seems like the only pitching prospect in the system that stands out
