27-Year-Old Second Baseman2B
New York Mets
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

Returns to lineup
2BNew York Mets
May 18, 2019
McNeil (abdomen) is back in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Marlins.
ANALYSIS
After missing one start due to abdominal tightness, McNeil will slot back in atop the order against right-hander Pablo Lopez. He has now led off in each of his last 19 starts -- including against four left-handers in that span. McNeil has an OPS over .900 against both lefties and righties this season, and he's striking out just 8.8 percent of the time overall (171 plate appearances).
