23-Year-Old PitcherP
Philadelphia Phillies AA
2023 Fantasy Outlook
McGarry walked more than a batter per inning during his college career, but the Phillies loved his strikeout stuff and bet on his command improving to the point that he was at least playable, with upside for much more if he made an even bigger improvement in that area. Through his first two professional seasons, McGarry has indeed shown enough progress to suggest a big-league future, albeit probably as a reliever. In his 23 career minor-league starts, he owns a 3.05 ERA and an outstanding 37.9 K%, but a 13.4 BB% is an untenable number for a starter. The Phillies had him working in relief in September in Triple-A, seemingly as an audition to help with the team's playoff push, but his 9.00 ERA and 9:9 K:BB failed to earn him that chance. If he remains in relief to start this season, he could debut quite quickly, though presumably in a lower-leverage role. If he's given another chance to start and eventually gets a big-league opportunity, his strikeout prowess will make him a tempting streamer, but the potential for an implosion will be high.

McGarry (side) struck out two and allowed one run on one hit and one walk in two innings in his first start of the season for Double-A Reading.
The 23-year-old righty made one rehab appearance, striking out two in one inning for Single-A Clearwater earlier this month. Now that he is fully healthy after suffering an oblique injury in spring training, McGarry will set his sights on showcasing starter-level command and control after walking 53 batters in 87.1 innings last season.
