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.
