Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2012
2011
McGuire was perhaps the ultimate demonstration of persistence on a Reds team full of them. A first-round pick in 2010, he made his major-league debut in 2017 after spending most of the season with Double-A Pensacola, and the Reds were his fifth organization. McGuire dominated at Pensacola, as a 28-year-old probably should, posting a 2.79 ERA and 1.08 WHIP with 170 strikeouts in 168 innings. McGuire can still bring it -- his average fastball in the bigs was clocked at 92.7 mph, but obviously he has a lower ceiling than those he's competing with for roster spots. Still, pitchers often can be late bloomers and stick around and carve out decent big-league careers, so there's still some hope for McGuire. The Reds designated him for assignment in the fall, and he subsequently signed a minor-league deal with his original franchise, the Blue Jays.
McGuire made his pro debut last season after being selected 11th overall in the 2010 draft and signing late. He fared pretty well with a 3.02 ERA, 1.229 WHIP, 8.9 K/9IP in 21 starts across High-A Dunedin and Double-A New Hampshire. The 6-foot-6 righty can command four pitches, topped by a low-90s fastball, so it's not a surprise to see him hit the ground running. He'll start the season at Double-A and could move quickly.
McGuire was the 11th overall pick in the June draft but didn't sign until August and will make his pro debut this season. He's a polished pitcher from an established program in Georgia Tech and is expected to move through the Jays system quickly.
