Scouting Report

Working from a full wind-up, McNeil is very advanced in terms of his delivery. He repeats well and attacks the zone with his bowling ball sinking fastball. Working steadily at 91-92 mph and cranking it up to 93 at times, McNeil ties hitters up routinely and produces groundballs. His breaking ball flashes average but is inconsistent at this point at 76-78 mph and he has the tendency to telegraph it. His moving fastball is a huge strength right now but the secondary pitches need development
