Zach McKinstry
24-Year-Old Second Baseman2B
2020 Fantasy Outlook
He doesn't have much pedigree (33rd-round pick in 2016), but McKinstry earned a spot on the Dodgers' 40-man roster with a breakout 2019 at Double-A and Triple-A. He had excelled at some previous stops but was old for those levels, so his production didn't really register. However, he was 26% better than the average Texas League hitter and used the juiced ball and hitter-friendly environment of the Pacific Coast League to log a 177 wRC+ after his promotion. His strikeout rate was below 20% at both stops, and he utilized an all-fields line drive and flyball-oriented approach. McKinstry played double-digit games at second base, shortstop, third base and the outfield, which is critical, as he will probably have to break in as a super-utility option. He hits left-handed but had reverse splits last year (.873 OPS vs. RHP, .924 OPS vs. LHP). McKinstry has a chance to hit for a high average with 20-homer pop. Read Past Outlooks
Protected from Rule 5 draft

November 20, 2019
McKinstry was added to the Dodgers' 40-man roster Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
The 24-year-old saw his first action with Triple-A Oklahoma City last season, where he hit .382/.421/.753 with seven home runs and 26 RBI over 26 games. McKinstry's addition to the 40-man roster protects him from the Rule 5 draft. While he showed promise at the Triple-A level, it's likely that the Dodgers will want to see a larger sample size before he makes his major-league debut.
