Prospect Profile: #25 Los Angeles Angels Kyle McGowin


Recommended Posts

Bats: Right Throws: Right Height: 6’3” 180 lbs. DOB: 11/27/91
(Orem): 1-1, 6.28 ERA, 5 BBs, 12 Ks, 14.1 IP

Drafted in the 5thround of the 2013 draft, this lanky right-hander has a projectable frame that could develop into either a starter or a reliever. Undrafted in high school, McGowin became Savannah State’s first pitcher ever drafted and the highest player in the school’s history.

A hard worker, McGowin has a competitive streak that will serve him well as he moves up the organizational ladder. McGowin throws a 90-93 mph fastball that he can ratchet up to 95. He has a plus slider and a developing changeup. As a pitcher, he generates a lot of ground balls, but also has the ability to punch out plenty with his stuff.

McGowin’s future lies primarily in his ability to develop his changeup. If he can make that an average offering, the Angels will most likely keep him as a starter. If not, he’ll move to the bullpen.

As a prospect, McGowin is a bit of a sleeper. Coming from a lower-ranked baseball program, some scouts held that against him even though he was an All-American last year. He only saw limited action as a pro in 2013 (after pitching 120 innings in college and punching out 135 with a 2.02 ERA), but 2014 should see him getting a lot more work in where he is a candidate for a breakout season.
