2023 Fantasy Outlook
After beginning his career with two seasons and change in a Dodgers uniform, McKinstry finished 2022 with the Cubs after a midseason trade from Los Angeles. He showed good defensive versatility by appearing at five different positions, though he continued to do very little at the plate. He slashed .199/.273/.361 and contributed five home runs across 57 games. While those numbers don't jump off the page, McKinstry was at least able to record a career-high seven stolen bases on seven attempts. Heading into his age-28 season, McKinstry looks like a backup to Nick Madrigal and Nico Hoerner up the middle, and he could see some time in the outfield as well. His uncertain playing time and probable low batting average limits his appeal, though McKinstry could have a little value in deeper leagues if he somehow sees an expanded role and also continues to steal bases at a regular clip.
