It was quite a good run for a 31st-round draft pick since Magill was selected out of high school by the Dodgers in 2008. Magill made his Major League debut in the Dodger Blue in 2013 and threw 27 2/3 overs for the club. before returning to Triple-A for the entire 2014 season. That winter, Magill handed out to the Reds in exchange for Chris Heiseybut Magill’s Cincinnati tenure was marked by a Tommy John operation that wiped out almost all of his 2015-16 seasons.
Magill finally gained a foothold in the major leagues in 2018, appearing in 90 games and hitting 107 1/3 overs with the Twins and Mariners over the course of the 2018-19 seasons. While his State Broadcast figures were not pretty, Magill improved his stats by quite an astonishing amount and posted an ERA of 3.94 over those two seasons despite some of the league’s worst hard contact and xwOBA totals. Magill also allowed an above-average number of home runs, but hit batsmen at a solid rate of 25.1%.
In the shortened 2020 season, Magill placed a perfect ERA of 0.00 over his first eight outings before experiencing some serious problems, quite possibly due to a shoulder injury that eventually brought an early end to his campaign. The Mariners released Magill and then quickly re-signed him at the end of last year’s spring training, but the right wing saw no action at the MLB or minor league levels in 2021. Magill ends his career with a 4.63 ERA and 23.2% knockout rate over 149 2/3 overs in the majors.
We at MLB Trade Rumors congratulate Magill on his career, and we wish him all the best with his retirement.
