McGonigle is a well rounded prospect who’s right on the cusp between being an outstanding college prospect who could step in and play right away at any program in the country and a bona fide pro prospect. How he develops his overall strength and peripheral tools over the off season will tell a lot about his near term future. McGonigle’s offensive game is very polished. He has a very patient, practiced approach at the plate with strong swing fundamentals. His approach from the right side appears to be more base hit/line drive oriented, keeping his hands low and quick to the ball. From the left side, McGonigle shows more loft and power to his swing. If he gets stronger, we don’t have much doubt that McGonigle will be a very strong and well rounded offensive performer in the future. Like his offensive approach, the rest of McGonigle’s game is mature and polished. He gets good jumps in the outfield and he has excellent accuracy on his throws. He’ll be the type of outfielder who teams think that they can run on because of his below average arm strength, but he’ll keep throwing out more than his share of runners who take a chance on him. McGonigle’s running speed projects the same as his arm strength. He’s a 7.05 runner, he is slightly below average on the pro scale, but he runs the bases and does everything else with excellent instincts. McGonigle is first and foremost a baseball player and his playability rates with most any outfielder in the "04" class. MLB clubs that get past the "plus tools only" thinking to the draft are most likely to like Mark. There's no doubt that he will be make a big impact at the highest level of college ball. Mark is an excellent student with great makeup.

McGonigle is definitely an "04" to keep close track of. He can play and he's got some MLB tools. Only a junior he shows a MLB arm from the outfield and he ran a 7 flat on a very slow track in Ft Myers. He's a MLB average maybe plus runner. He's an excellent outfielder who gets good jumps and tracks things down. He has a great feel for the game. His bat plays big. A switch hitter who looked extra good from the left side. Gap power with wood already. He likes to play and he plays hard. He's got a good strong athletic body. He's a potential draft pick and a DI player for sure. He's the type that the old time coaches love. He's a real baseball player. It will be very interesting to see where he's at next year.

McGonigle is a projectable outfielder with a good lean build and lots of hitting ability. He makes contact with a line drive swing from both sides of the plate. He showed gap power to all fields and ran the bases well. His outfield actions are smooth and he already has a playable outfield arm. As he gains strength we should start seeing results from all that potential he has.
