5'9 172 so already assuming the worst until proven otherwise.

Still a small sample, but Scott Manea is leading the SALY in RC+ by a sizable margin.

Alonso and McNeil are 1, 2 in RC+ in the EL.

I'm still reluctant to think that McNeil turns into an MLB player (at least not a starter), but maybe this is what he can do when he's healthy?

He's 26, so the Mets might as well see if his prime years can be useful.

He's 26 but he missed basically the last year and a half with injuries. He's not a guy who has lingered a long time in the minors.

He spent part of a third season in St Lucie last year. It doesn't matter that injuries are what are holding him back, he's behind the development arc and his skill set does not translate to obvious MLB starter.

Why? Honestly, what's the knock on his skillset (also responding to follow-up post)?

He hits for average. Always has. High contact, low K rates.

Potential as a defender. Good range, average arm. A bit rusty there probably but will be at least an average defender at 2B eventually. Average/slightly-above-average speed.

Biggest weakness before was power, but that's become a strength, at least compared to other utility types. The HRs he's been hitting so far this year haven't been cheap shots. The one he hit yesterday was a no-doubt bomb.

Only real knock on him right now, to me, would be health history.

- I didn't say injuries are holding him back. But he has missed significant time with injuries. That's not an opinion.
- He played 30 games at PSL last season to work his way back slowly after missing the entire 2016 season. That's not an indictment of his development arc. (and btw maybe Conforto should have been on a similar plan this year)
- What is it about his skill set does not translate to MLB starter?

McNeil reached AA at the end of 2015, so it seems like he's been running in place but he only played in 78 games since then (bc of injuries the past 2 yrs).

Since he has played the majority of his minor league games in A+, I do think they'll let him go for another month or so in the EL in order to sustain this level of success for a bit. I think he'll be on the ML radar at some point in the 2nd half. He could certainly leapfrog Evans in the pecking order unless he (Evans) steps things up.
