McMahon, 21, is batting just .217/.305/.331 through 78 games for Double-A Hartford. McMahon had an average hovering around .300 in the minors prior to this season. Not only has he struggled to hit for average, but McMahon has also been sapped of nearly all of his power. Curiously, he has just four home thus far in 2016. It has been a lost season for McMahon, who also contiues to strike out at an alarming rate.
McMahon, 21, is batting just .225/.323/.349 with two home runs, 25 RBI and seven steals through 49 games for Double-A Hartford. Other than the surprising uptick in stolen bases, it has been a lost season thus far for McMahon, who has experienced a power outage while also failing to hit for average.
McMahon, 21, is batting .233/.331/.325 over 144 plate appearances at Double-A Hartford this season. Power has been McMahon's calling card through his previous three stops in the minors, but he's shown precious little in that regard since moving to Double-A this season. He has yet to hit a home run, and his slugging percentage is down 150 points compared to what he posted at High-A Modesto in 2015. McMahon has at least gone a perfect 7-for-7 on stolen-base attempts, but he'll need to start cranking out extra-base hits in order for the Rockies to feel more positive about his development.
McMahon, 21, is batting .250/.327/.354 with six RBI and one steal through 13 games for Double-A Hartford. McMahon has fanned a staggering 18 times to begin the season, though perhaps this should not be all that surprising. Even in a stellar year at High-A in 2015, he struck out 153 times in 132 games. A less hitter-friendly environment at this level should be a better indicator of his future trajectory, though McMahon remains one of the better prospects in the Colorado system.
McMahon is spending time trying to learn how to play first base this spring, the Denver Post reports. It's likely that McMahon will open 2016 at Double-A Hartford, but with Nolan Arenado entrenched at third base for the foreseeable future, the Rockies want to have a path for McMahon to take over a regular job at the big league level once he's ready to do so. In order to maintain his value, the Rockies are planning on giving McMahon time at both corner-infield spots to begin the season. Regardless of whether he moves off third base permanently, McMahon's bat will carry him to the big leagues. Last season at High-A Modesto, McMahon compiled a .300/.372/.520 line with 18 homers and 75 RBI in 132 games for the Nuts.
