Let's salute a current player.
I really like what I'm seeing from our
new infielder Jeff McNeil.
Jeff was drafted by the New York Mets in the 12th round of the 2013 Major League Baseball Draft.
He made his professional debut with the Kingsport Mets. McNeil played 2014 with the Savannah Sand Gnats and St. Lucie Mets. He spent 2015 with St. Lucie and Binghamton Mets. After the 2015 season, he played in the Arizona Fall League.
In 2016, McNeil began using an unorthodox knob-less bat given to him by Mets minor league hitting coordinator Lamar Johnson; at that point Jeff began using knob-less bats exclusively.
He played in only 51 games combined in 2016 and 2017 with Binghamton, St. Lucie and Las Vegas 51s due to numerous injuries.
Jeff started 2018 with the Binghamton Rumble Ponies and was promoted to Las Vegas during the season. He was called up to the majors for the first time on July 24, 2018.
