Trey McGough’s name has appeared in the Altoona Curve lineup since the beginning of June.
The Pittsburgh Pirates 24th-round draft pick in 2019 earned a promotion to Class Double-A and has shown improvement throughout his stay in Altoona, including winning his third game of the season on July 27.
McGough appeared in two AAABA Tournaments, recording the final out for Johnstown Martella’s Pharmacy during the 2016 opening night game against Baltimore, and tossing 6 2/3 innings in a win over Altoona Johnston Realty on the third night in 2017.
The local Ferndale Area High School graduate is a fan favorite with the Curve, and GM Derek Martin even said the team sees a significant attendance bump on nights the left-hander pitches.
