Well, we finally got to see McBeth in the flesh on a major league mound. What are your impressions?
I liked the fact he threw strikes. I'm sure he's figured out that's how you get sent out of here.
I think maybe he got up to 93 on the gun. That doesn't set him apart from many other bullpen candidates. It didn't look like his pitches had the movement of Burton, Salmon or Coffey. His mechanics consisted of rare back and throw it. In other words very raw.
I realize this was his debut so these only first impressions.
What did you guys think of his stuff?
