Guess we need insurance for Cecchini's arrival time.

From BA #396

McNeil emerged as a sparkplug for the Dirtbags this spring, hitting .349/.399/.440 with 13 stolen bases. He's a high-energy player with good bat-handling and bunting skills, and he has a knack for putting the ball in play. He struck out just 10 times in 218 at-bats this year, and 12 times in 194 at-bats last year. A lefthanded hitter, he has a slashing approach and no power, but he could be an average hitter. He's an above-average to plus runner, though his baserunning could use refinement. McNeil doesn't have flashy actions in the infield, but he makes the routine plays and is versatile enough to play either middle infield spot or the outfield, helping him profile as a utilityman. His arm is fringy and fits best at second base.

Leading hitter on his team, no power, doesn't walk nor K. Had something of a breakout this year after really not hitting at all frosh/soph years (but playing in seemingly every game for his team - hopefully speaks to his fielding abilities).

McNeil has until July 12 to decide if he wants to sign with the Mets or return for his final season at Long Beach but the 21 year old says the decision is easy. "I'm ready to sign. It's what I've wanted to do my entire life so I'm definitely going to sign and get my professional career started' McNeil told KSBY.
