The Otters had 45 wins in 2012 and 51 victories in 2013 (the team's first winning season since 2005). In 2014, Evansville won 57 games and after a 48-48 season in 2015, the Otters finished with 55 regular season wins in 2016. McCauley guided the Otters to postseason appearances with 52 wins in 2017, 51 wins in 2018, and a franchise-tying record of 57 wins in 2019 and the franchise's first Frontier League division title since 1999. McCauley led the Otters to 57 wins again in 2021, tying the franchise record for a second consecutive season.
