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

Undergoes surgery on wrist

Wrist
October 2, 2019
McNeil (wrist) underwent surgery to repair a fractured bone in his right wrist on Wednesday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
The surgery was largely expected and usually carries a six-week recovery timeline, meaning McNeil should be ready for spring training. The 27-year-old finished fourth in the National League with a .318 batting average in 2019 and also recorded 23 home runs and 75 RBI over 133 games.
