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

Back on active roster
2BNew York Mets
August 24, 2019
McNeil (hamstring) will be active for Saturday's game against the Braves, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
While McNeil is not in the lineup Saturday, he will be available off the bench. Aaron Altherr was designated for assignment to clear room on the roster. One of nine qualified hitters with an OBP of .400 or better, McNeil should be atop the order close to every day down the stretch.
