2017

2016

Addison Russell was the big prize from Oakland in the Jeff Samardzija trade in 2014, but McKinney's no second banana. The numbers don't jump off the page, but they were still very good for a 20-year-old, including a .976 OPS for High-A Myrtle Beach and 26 doubles in 274 at-bats for Double-A Tennessee, and he may be the Cubs' best prospect at this point. Unfortunately, a hairline fracture in his knee ended his 2015 season prematurely. He's shown good contact in his three years in the minors, topping 75 percent contact rate at every stop and drawing walks at a decent clip. If those doubles turn into home runs, look out. One area of concern, however: after stealing 14 bases over his first two years in the minors, he had zero (in just two attempts) last year. While the future is bright, a lack of stolen bases limits his fantasy upside.

2015

Though Addison Russell was the big prize in the July trade for Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel, savvy dynasty leaguers noted the change of scenery for McKinney, a first-round draft pick in 2013. Still just 20, McKinney already has almost 800 plate appearances in the minors and has a good power/speed combination. Coupled with a decent batting eye (61:100 BB:K ratio in High-A last year), he has the potential to be a star for the Cubs if they can find room for him.

2014

McKinney was the A's first-round draft pick in 2013 out of high school in Plano, Texas. The 18-year-old outfielder amassed 215 at-bats across Rookie Ball and Low-A and hit .326 with three homers and eight steals. Most scouts' take on McKinney is that his quick and short swing will translate well to professional baseball and while he does not truly excel in any particular area, he is a very complete and well-rounded player. McKinney only turned 19 in August, so he is a long ways from the majors, but he will be watched closely this year in High-A and could progress through the system fairly rapidly, especially for a player drafted out of high school.
