2022 Player Outlook
The Rays’ 2018 first round made his debut on April 29th and went on to make 25 starts on the season. He featured a four-pitch mix which included a hittable 96 mph fastball (.303 BAA), and an even more hittable changeup (.393 BAA). His slider and curveball coaxed opposing batters to swing at pitches outside the strike zone and had a combined .200 BAA. McClanahan finished his rookie season on a high note, lowering his first half 4.05 ERA by more than a half a run by seasons end. His above average K-BB% suggests that he has elite control. McClanahan will once again be supported by a Rays lineup that scores lots of runs and that should help him produce another double-digit win season.
