Scouting Report: 42nd Round Pick Jason McCracken, RHP, No School

Don’s Thoughts: Jason showcased as a late inning relief pitcher for Los Angeles Piece Community College.  He can be described as a raw, tall, right handed pitcher with a solid frame that can easily fill out more on his already 225 lb body.

At this stage, he is a thrower and will require a great deal of instruction to learn the craft of pitching.  He has some good things going for him and flashes a workable hammer curveball.  He has decent zip on the fastball, but will have to clean up mechanically in order to enhance his repertoire.  He may require a great deal of work, but the size and potential is what sticks out on this late round pick.
