Former USF Baseball Star Shane McClanahan Promoted By Tampa Bay Rays from Low-A Bowling Green to High-A Charlotte

The southpaw is making quick work of the minors so far.


The Tampa Bay Rays announced today that they have promoted former USF baseball LHP Shane McClanahan from their low-A affiliate Bowling Green to High-A Charlotte.

The lefty from Cape Coral was selected by the Rays in the 2018 MLB Draft and has already made a good impression with the club in just over a year since getting picked in the first round.

McClanahan had a bumpy April with an ERA of 4.71, but when the calendar changed to May, he settled down and took over a full run off of his ERA and 24 points off his batting average against.

Through ten games as a starter, McClanahan is 3-4 with a 3.19 ERA, with 68 strikeouts to 26 walks. Overall, in 11 appearances, he’s 4-4 with a 3.40 ERA, with 74 strikeouts and 31 walks.
