Professional career[edit]

Los Angeles Dodgers[edit]

Magill was drafted by the Dodgers in the 31st round of the 2008 MLB Draft out of Royal High School in Simi Valley, California. He played with the Gulf Coast Dodgers in 2008, Ogden Raptors in 2009, Great Lakes Loons in 2010 and Rancho Cucamonga Quakes in 2011. With the AA Chattanooga Lookouts in 2012 he was 11-8 with a 3.76 ERA and was selected to the Southern League midseason All-Star team. The Dodgers added him to the 40 man roster after the season and promoted him to the AAA Albuquerque Isotopes to start 2013.

He was called up to the Majors for the first time on April 27, 2013 to start against the Milwaukee Brewers. He pitched 6.2 innings while allowing two runs and striking out seven. Magill made 3 more starts with the Dodgers before he was optioned back to Triple-A Albuquerque on May 20. He had no record and a 5.00 ERA in his 4 starts. Magill was recalled again to make an emergency start in place of Hyun-Jin Ryu on June 2. Magill spent the entire 2014 season with the Isotopes, where he worked as both a starter and a reliever. He was in 36 games and started 12 of them. He was 7-6 with a 5.21 ERA.
