McGeary having tough time in Hagerstown

Left-hander Jack McGeary, one of the Nationals’ top prospects, is having a tough time on the mound. Entering Saturday’s action, McGeary was 0-6 with a 6.79 ERA in 13 starts for Class A Hagerstown. 

Acting general manager Mike Rizzo said McGeary will be demoted to Class A Vermont.
The Nationals plan to have Spin Williams, the team’s pitching coordinator, iron out McGeary mechanics.

McGeary is in his first full season of pro ball. He has spent the last two years splitting time between Stanford University and pro ball.  

McGeary makes a decision

Left-hander Jack McGeary, the Nationals’ sixth-round pick in the 2007 First-Year Player Draft, has decided to take the spring and summer quarters off from Stanford University and concentrate on baseball full time. McGeary will return to school in the fall.

McGeary, 19, said he liked the way he pitched last season for the Gulf Coast Nationals and Class-A Vermont.

After the fall quarter, McGeary will decide once again if he will concentrate on baseball full time. He needs four quarters before he graduates from Stanford.

“I want to be a full-time player and I also got a lot of school done and I’m way ahead of schedule for graduating, so I’m able to take some time off.”
