McAvoy allowed two runs on five hits and three walks while not registering a strikeout for High-A Salem on Tuesday. The 2014 fourth-round pick (134th overall) out of Bryant University is 1-3 with a 6.57 ERA and and an 11:13 K:BB rate over his last five starts.
The 2015 started well for McAvoy, but he's hit a rough patch since. The right-hander was a fastball-slider guy at Bryant and is now trying to incorporate a changeup to his repertoire. Command remains an issue (34 BB in 64.1 IP) as he can rush his delivery and pull his fastball across the strike zone rather than letting it sink inside. When it's working for him, he's getting groundball outs; when it's not, he's walking batters which can lead to trouble.
