He played his first season in the rookie Arizona League. He hit .223 in 45 games. He knocked in 19 runs and stole five bases.

McCormick played the rest of the year at short-season Bend. In late July, McCormick was taking part in early words just before a brawl. He stayed in the game to hit a two-run double, The Bulletin wrote. He also had an early September two-run single.
Overall, McCormick got into 72 games for Bend that year. He hit .239, with three home runs. It was his final season as a pro.
