2023 MLB DRAFT: Nolan McLean, RHP — Oklahoma State

Nolan McLean remains a two-way player at Oklahoma State, where the 6-foot-4, 214-pounder has wrapped up his junior year. Likely a pitcher moving forward, McLean closed some games for the Cowboys this year, earning six saves, but also hit .250 with nine homers and 29 RBI over 124 at-bats after missing just over a month early in the season due to injury.

FSS Event History: McLean was a two-way star as a member of the Dirtbags at the 2019 National Tournaments who earned high marks for an arm that has, since then, served him well at the collegiate level.

Current Ranking in Joe Doyle’s FSS Plus Top 600: 231

Joe Doyle on McLean:

McLean, the No. 81 pick in the 2022 MLB Draft, went unsigned by the Orioles. After fixing a hitch in his swing prior to last spring, he tapped more into his significant raw power and developed some feel for hitting atop the OSU lineup, but the swing and miss woes here are considerable. He’s also got a huge arm over at third base or right field too. That said, most see his future on the bump. On the mound, he’s got an upper-90’s heater up to 98 with solid run and carry through the zone. He’ll also drop a 12-6 curveball in the mid-70’s, and a developing change-up, though that needs some refinement. McLean quite comfortably has high-leverage upside.
