Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Fastball: 40 | Curveball: 45 | Slider: 50 | Changeup: 45 | Control: 60 | Overall: 45

A seventh-round Draft choice out of Rider in 2017, Margevicius signed with the Padres for $160,000, well below his slot value. A junior with a high-80s fastball and no devastating offspeed pitches, Margevicius was easy to pass on. But with pinpoint command and a savvy for mixing his pitches, the deceptive left-hander rose through the ranks quickly.

In his first professional season, Margevicius proved himself no match for Rookie-ball and Short-Season hitters. He notched a 1.31 ERA with 62 strikeouts and just eight walks in 2017. After 13 starts at Class A Fort Wayne, he faced a bit of a challenge upon his jump to Class A Advanced Lake Elsinore in 2018. Still, he finished with more than a strikeout per inning there and earned a promotion for one start in the Double-A playoffs before the end of the year. He was a surprise promotion to the big league club at the start of the 2019 season.

More than anything, Margevicius gets by with his command. He won't blow hitters away, but he works on the edges and doesn't give in to opposing hitters very often. The left-hander rarely hits 90 with his fastball, but it's deceptive, and his offspeed mix is intriguing. Margevicius contrasts a sharp slider with a slow breaking ball, and his changeup generally induces weak contact on the ground. At best, Margevicius is probably a back-end starter. But he might just have the savvy and the command to stick there.
