This 6-foot-2, 195-pound right-hander definitely made a strong impression with his quick arm action and heavy 84-86 mph fastball, topping out at 87 mph. McFadden has a deceptive delivery and hides the ball well on all pitches. His breaking ball (67-69 mph) displayed good depth and was consistently in the strike zone, and his changeup (77-80 mph) had late downward movement. McFadden didn't disappoint at the plate either: a physical presence in the box and showed power potential with excellent extension after contact driving the ball to all fields. In the field, McFadden showed a good approach to the ball with soft hands and an accurate arm.
