View Draft ReportMcElveny attracted little attention at Bonita Vista (Calif.) High but made a favorable impression on a few clubs during the Player Development Pipeline showcase in Compton after the season. He is an undersized infielder who has decent bat speed and plays hard, but he’s a fringe-average runner with below-average power. He is likely to move from shortstop to second base. Any team that drafts McElveny is banking on his decent athleticism and high motor helping his tools improve as he matures. He is committed to San Diego State but is singable.
