Matt McLain played 89 games for the Reds in 2023 and arrived with a bang. He hit 16 home runs and stole 14 bases while slashing an impressive .290/.357/.507. As with many rookies, he struggled with strikeouts, racking up 115 of them. McLain's expected stats leave something to be desired (xBA of 2.56 and xSLG of .436), but assuming growth in his sophomore season and batting in a hitter's haven make the 24-year-old a high-upside pick in the fifth or sixth round.
