PROMOTION: Brendan McKay Will Be Promoted to A-Advanced On Monday
Tampa Bay Rays two-way prospect Brendan McKay (1B/LHP) will be promoted to the Charlotte Stone Crabs of the A-Advanced Florida State League on Monday, according to the Bowling Green Hot Rods official Twitter. McKay has been one of the best pitchers in all of the minors so far this season, going 2-0 in 6 starts with a 1.09 ERA, 14.6 K/9, 0.7 BB/9, and 1.10 xFIP. He’s also hit well, posting a .408 wOBA and 147 wRC+ in 91 plate appearances, walking an incredible 30% of the time. The Rays are going to let McKay continue playing both ways until one of them stops working. The Florida State League should be a good test of his abilities.
