Bio: McCord rejoins the West Coast League for his third season after playing for Pippins coach Kyle Krustangel’s Wenatchee AppleSox in 2017 and 2018. He played for the Peninsula Oilers of the Alaska Baseball League last summer, and was slated to see action in the Cape Cod Baseball League as well as the Northwoods League this summer before public safety measures led to the cancellation of the CCBL’s season.
McCord, a left-handed senior sidewinder from Gilbert, Arizona, also joins college teammate Seth Kuykendall, who was announced in February. McCord has a career 4.23 ERA in 112.2 innings at Western Oregon, conceding just 30 walks while striking out 103. He had his most elite season last year, when he struck out 50 batters in 38.2 innings. He compiled a 2.33 ERA and kept opponents to a .182 batting average.
Known as much for his bat as his arm, McCord is a career .306 hitter for the Wolves. Known to display some pop in his bat, he has 19 collegiate home runs and a .519 career slugging percentage.
