Scouting the Draft: Mackenzie Gore

Mackenzie Gore, LHP, HS.  6'2", 180 lbs.

Mackenzie Gore currently hits 89-94 with his FB which he is able to command on both sides of the plate.  His second best pitch is a changeup with good fade and sink.  The curveball is promising but needs work.  Gore has a wiry, athletic body which is highly projectable with plenty of room for another 20 lbs.  He works with a big leg kick reminiscent of Vida Blue.  Current comp would be Tyler Jay another LHP who I think is in the Twins organization.  He's ranked #28 by in their draft prospects list.
