Kade McClure is the roommate of 4th round pick Lincoln Henzman. He has an imposing 6’7″ frame and has been a phenomenal starting pitcher for the Cardinals. He is 20-3 with 189 strikeouts and just 55 walks in 175 innings over the past two seasons.

The right hander is considered the second-best starting pitcher for Louisville. McClure actually grew up playing football with Bears’ quarterback Mitch Trubisky. McClure will be added to a talent-laden farm system that includes plenty of pitching depth. We’ll have to see how he develops. But his numbers at Louisville are eye opening. It’ll be interesting to see how he pitches in the College World Series.

"“I like to control the running game and field my own position and do a lot of stuff that most people my size don’t do as well. I’m still very much so growing into my body.” Kade McClure, White Sox 6th Round Pick"
