Manager Bud Black expects McMahon to play over 150 games for the Rockies this season, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports. "He's walking around with a sense of knowing that he belongs, that he's a big leaguer and going to be a productive big leaguer, and I love that confidence," said Black.

With that in mind, he began his workouts earlier this winter in an effort to be better prepared for the six-month grind. McMahon had elite exit velocity/hard hit data according to Statcast and has a significant room for improvement over the .250/.329/.450 slash line he posted in his first full big-league season.
