Latest Update McCann is not in the Yankees staring lineup on Sunday. Sun Aug, 31, 10:40 AM
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.
After starting the last six-straight games and going 1-for-11 over his last three, McCann will get a routine day off. Francisco Cervelli will get the start behind the plate Sunday.Analyst: Howard Bender
Talk about making the most out of opportunities. McCann had only one at-bat in the game, but it was the biggest at-bat as he hit a walk off three run homer. Analyst: Mark Kaplan
With lefty Chris Sale on the mound for the White Sox, the Yankees will kill two birds with one stone by putting McCann on the bench Sunday. Obviously the day off is always helpful to maintaining his health, but they can also stack righties against Sale and use Francisco Cervelli behind the plate.Analyst: Howard Bender
Since being activated from the 7-day concussion DL, McCann has caught three-straight games so the Yankees will give him a day off to relax and continue healing. Francisco Cervelli will handle the work behind the plate Thursday.Analyst: Howard Bender
