Latest Update Brian McCann to see more time at first base Wed Jul, 23, 09:16 PM
An excellent power hitter from the catching position, he has a great batting eye with the ability to be an RBI machine. Is consistent all-round and calls a good game.
Flaws: : Gets run on far too easily from time to time when his throwing and timing are off. Has dealt with vision issues that have at times caused him problems seeing the ball.
McCann has already played eight games at first base for the Yankees which means that he is very close to getting first base eligibility in most standard fantasy leagues. The power has been there for McCann as he has hit 10 home runs in his first season with the Yankees but his average sits at just .239 a mark that is well below his .274 career average.

Brian McCann hasn't been all that the Yankees wanted when they signed him as a free agent this offseason from the Braves but recently that's changed. Kevin Long's work has really done wonders for McCann and given him confidence in his swing again that he was lacking early in the season. Analyst: Drew Phelps
Despite a six-game hit streak, McCann will get the day off Monday to ensure that he rests enough and is reasonably healthy moving forward. Francisco Cervelli will get the nod behind the dish for Monday.Analyst: Howard Bender
McCann went three for four and didn't have to leave the game after the at bat, so there is not much to worry about. He may not play tomorrow if his foot is sore, but don't expect him to be out for much longer than that. Analyst: Ben Diamond
