One of the hardest-throwers in college baseball, McFadden was a highly touted prospect out of high school--ranked No. 81 on the BA 500 in 2015. He will continue to draw interest because of his velocity, though he's never quite figured out how to throw strikes. Through three seasons working mostly as a reliever with Washington State, McFadden has thrown 80.2 innings and struck out 89 batters, but he's also walked 78. That sort of walk rate will be untenable in the professional game, but a team might want to take a shot on his arm strength that regularly produces mid-90s velocity. McFadden needs to iron out a delivery that has some violence and is very long in the back, which contributes to his below-average control. In terms of results, this spring has been McFadden's most effective season with a 2.33 ERA through 27 innings with 41 strikeouts (13.67 K/9) and 25 walks (8.33 BB/9).
