I think McKenna's offensive potential is a bit underrated. He's not an all glove, speedy, no stick guy.

 

I think he's closer to an outfield version of Ryan Flaherty than someone like Brandon Fahey.  Still think he's purely a backup, but he's got a shot at a MLB career.

Maybe so, but Elias has drafted a bunch of outfielders. Ryan's chance to prove himself now, because hopefully those at the lower levels should be nipping at his heels.  If not, then we have bigger issues.

McKenna could easily get lost in the shuffle but Id rather have him up here as the 4th OF than Stowers or Neustrom being the one getting 6 ABs a week.

Absolutely.    Neither Stowers or Neustrom are kicking the door in at AAA, but if and when they do make the case, they need to play.  My guess is it will be after we trade Mancini or Santander.

Right now, the next outfielder up might be Diaz, who is back and doing okay.

Diaz went back on the IL this weekend, reinjured his hamstring. Of course.

 

Agree with what you guys are saying. If someone is going to be on the bench and getting just a handful of PAs a week, I prefer McKenna to those other guys. Let them play every day until someone is traded or really hurt.

I missed that.  I chased grandkids all weekend, did not watch the Orioles or check on the minor league guys.  Sucks for Diaz.
