2019 Fantasy Outlook
McNeil has stellar bat-to-ball ability, as evidenced by the minuscule 9.7% strikeout rate he posted with the Mets last season. Those skills helped McNeil to a .329 average after his late-July callup, which was a top-10 mark among second-half qualifiers. McNeil had a K-rate above 13.3% at only one stop on the farm (16.4% in 30 games at High-A). While there isn't a ton of pop to be found here (.142 ISO, 30.2% hard-hit rate), he uses the entire field with balanced batted-ball distribution. McNeil can also run a little. His recorded average sprint speed of 27.8 ft/sec actually wasn't very good, but he was caught stealing just once in eight attempts, giving him 13 steals total across three levels. New general manager Brodie Van Wagenen said early in the offseason that McNeil was "penciled in" as the starter at second base, but that changed after the team's acquisition of Robinson Cano. Look for McNeil to open in a utility role. Read Past Outlooks

Starting in left field

April 23, 2019
McNeil (hand) will bat sixth and start in left field Tuesday against the Phillies.
ANALYSIS
McNeil went for precautionary X-rays Monday night after being struck on the hand by a pitch, but as expected, he'll be ready to play Tuesday. He's collected a base knock in eight of his past 10 games and is 16-for-39 with a home run and five RBI over that stretch.
