McKenna has himself a day

Recommended Posts

First major league homer, clutch single in the 9th, spectacular baserunning to score the winning run, and covered a lot of ground in LF.  
 

He adds a lot of subtle value.   If he could just hit, say, .240, I think he’d be a decent contributor.   Gotta like his defense and baserunning.

I think he is a 4th OF at the end of the day, but some consistent at bats could prove me wrong.

He's had a year and a half at Bowie but just 17 games at Norfolk. Would he benefit more by playing 50 straight games at Norfolk or playing when he can with the O's?

I tend to think the organization sees a ceiling on him that regular playing time in AAA wouldn't fix.

But I definitely agree that the defense and baserunning are a breath of fresh air. And at .240, he would add a lot of value.

Yes, it was. The slide at home was phenomenal!

If he only comes in for defense in the late innings or pinch runs, I don’t see a problem.

With the health record of the rest of the outfielders I would expect him to play more than that.

Tony says he can't hit a good major league fastball.  That could be a problem if true.

Yeah every time I’ve seen a guy with 95+ go up in the zone, he can’t touch it. And he can’t take the pitch either.

A 4th OFer plays when the regulars are injured.  With Hays and Santander on the team he could play quite a bit.  So he better be able to hit.
