Jarrod McKinney is a 2008 OF/C with a 6'0'', 205 lb. frame from Hughes Springs, TX who attends Hughes Springs HS. He has a square shouldered build that is strong and powerful. McKinney was one of the biggest surprises of the event both because of his tools and his performance. McKinney ran the 60 in 6.57 and despite a powerful swing was consistently in the 4.2/4.3 range down to first base from the right side. He threw 91 mph during drills from the outfield and made numerous good catches and strong throws during game action. He was a dynamic defensive outfielder with pro level right field tools. McKinney's offensive game wasn't as polished but the tools are there as well. He has a simple hitting approach and does a good job keeping his swing short to the ball. He has very good bat speed and present gap to gap power. McKinney attacked the ball aggressively early in counts and is not going to let a fastball get by him. He's still working on his timing, especially with his front foot. All the tools are there and they are the type that play in the pros. McKinney has also has an all out, hustling attitude that was unmistakable as well.
