    McDonald seems to be coming into his own and could really take a big step forward this year.

    McDonald's problem has always been control. He maintained his control last year, amazingly on a staff that couldn't do that. If he put guys on base he wasn't letting them go home like the others.

    I love McDonald's delivery. It's smooth and effortless and he gets nice velocity consistently from it. His release masks pitches well. It's all about command.

    McDonald simply needs to continue trending upward
