Cole McCurry, relief pitcher

Will he pitch in the major leagues?

McCurry is a college-trained left-handed pitcher who pitched well as a starter in the low minors but has been more ineffective the higher he’s progressed. As a relief pitcher, he’s had one great half-season at Double-A but has more often been merely adequate. There’s no reason to believe he’ll advance to the majors; although, because he throws left-handed, there’s always a chance that he’ll surface as a left-handed one-out specialist. He hasn’t been used that way to date.

He was sold to the Braves’ organization in mid-season, where he moved between High-A, AA, and AAA as needed. He doesn’t appear on Baseball America’s minor-league free agent tracker, and the sale to the Braves is the last transaction on his list, so I assume he’s on a roster somewhere in the Braves’ system.
