McKenna has been one of the leading hitters in the Big West Conference in each of the last two years. He also put together a strong summer in the Cape Cod League, establishing himself as one of the premier college hitters on the West Coast. He has a short, quick swing and makes consistent contact. An unconventional setup at the plate with his hands close to his chest helps his contact-based approach and swing path, but may limit his power. Listed at 6-foot-2, 200 pounds, the righthanded hitter has above-average power to unlock, but more typically hits doubles to the gap. McKenna has played center field throughout his college career and is a solid runner with an average arm. Though he covers ground well in the outfield and has solid speed, he is unlikely to stick in center field in pro ball. He offers value as someone who can play all three outfield positions thanks to his strong arm and outfield instincts. He earns praise for his approach to the game.
