Here's a scouting report on McClung:

Basically McClung will tend to fire heat while mixing in a combination of his nice curve and slider to emasculate right-handed hitters. Against lefties he'll use his four seamer less, work away with a slower splitter and mix in his curve (breaks into a lefty).
Phillips will struggle against him but Baker should load his lineup with lefties.
It was originally posted in a thread where reds44 called Dunn's shot...
If there is any justice, Reds44 caught it!
