Bat Control: Decent (35) Displays fair bat to ball ability. Decent amount of miss in his swing. Hits the ball in the air often, but can hit the ball on the ground when needed. Can hit the ball to all fields. Presents fair hand-eye coordination.
Hit: Rough (30) A power hitter who lifts the ball in the air consistently. Dead-red fastball hitter who can catch up to any fastball, but struggles with breaking balls and off-speed pitches. The majority of his at bats end in either a walk, strikeout or extra base hit. He can hit the ball to all fields, but tends to pull the ball. He does an okay job of going with what the pitcher gives him, but at times he forces it and rolls over on the baseball. Will shorten up his swing a little bit with two strikes. A decent overall hitter, his hit tool flashes the potential to be a little below big-league average.
Power: Decent (35) A home run hitter and run producer who currently displays decent overall in-game power and can drive the ball to all fields. He displays big-league average raw power in batting practice. His best power is to his pull side, but he has shown fair power to center field and loft power to his push side. He sits on the fastball and likes the ball on the inner half of the plate. His swing presents solid lift and nice extension. His power ability is his best tool and it flashes the potential to be just under big-league average.
Arm: Strength (55) Accuracy (45) Proper action: Long, loose, fluid. Will shorten up action when playing first baseman. Nice on-line carry.
Hands/Field: Decent (35) Presents a decent feel for the ball on the infield and fair feel for the ball in the outfield. Fairly sure handed. Fairly smooth. Features a fair ability to pick the ball at first base. Displays a fair release/transfer. Demonstrates decent backhand ability on ground balls hit to his right and fair forehand ability on ground ball hit to his left. When in the outfield, he reads the ball fairly off of the bat and presents fair closing speed. His field tool should improve slightly over the next couple years, but will most likely remain below average at both first base and the corner outfield
Footwork: Decent (35) Range (35) His feet display decent quickness. Demonstrates a decent feel for the ball on the infield. Fair anticipation. Fair reaction time. Not too swift on the dirt and presents decent lateral movement. Features a fair ability to come in on soft ground balls/bunts. Jumps (40) Routes (40)
Body Control: Quickness (40) Agility (40) Coordination (45)
Style: Long, strong, powerful strides. Fairly upright. Decent first-step quickness. A little heavy foot, but better once he is underway. A fair base runner, who will attempt to steal the occasional base, but not much of a base stealer. Presents nice lead-offs and fair secondaries.
- Run Speed (40)
- Base Runner (40)
SUMMATION: McInerney is a big, strong power hitting first baseman/corner outfielder. He displays solid raw power in batting practice and can drive the ball to all fields in game action. He does not get cheated at the plate and swings as hard as he can every single time. Despite a strong arm, he does not offer much value on defense as his ability is only playable at both first base and the corner outfield. Although not a true base clogger, he is not much of a base runner and is not a threat on the bases. Possible depth option, but most likely a solid organizational type player.
