Description: Yankees catcher Brian McCann is 4-for-8 with a pair of home run against Tampa Bay left-hander David Price.
Insight: Interestingly, the left-handed McCann is a better hitter against southpaws (.301) than right-handers (.189) this season. Unfortunately, he owns a .221 batting average because 190 of 263 at-bats have been against right-handers.

Description: Yankees catcher Brian McCann is not in Saturday afternoon's starting lineup.
Insight: Just a routine day off for McCann. Francisco Cervelli, just activated from the 60-day disabled list, will get the start behind the plate. Cervelli has little-to-no fantasy value.

Description: New York catcher Brian McCann is not in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Chicago White Sox.
Insight: Just a routine day off after a night game. McCann's batting average is down a bit from what we were used to in Atlanta, but he's still hitting homers and playing well behind the plate.

Description: New York catcher Brian McCann is hitless in seven at bats against Cubs right-hander Jeff Samardzija.
Insight: McCann's batting average has been hovering around .200 all season. That's not likely to improve Wednesday with Samardzija (0-4, 1.62 ERA) throwing for Chicago.

Insight: McCann has struggled this season, batting .230 with five home runs and 15 RBI, but his strikeout rate is just 12.8 percent and his BABIP is .231. His average should improve once his BABIP increases.

Description: New York catcher Brian McCann hasn't had much success in his career against Brewers starter Yovani Gallardo.
Insight: He's 2-for-15 against him with no home runs or RBI. A recent 5-for-41 spell has dropped McCann's average from .257 all the way down to .209. We wouldn't recommend starting him on Friday.

Description: Yankees catcher Brian McCann will take a seat Sunday against the Rays. SOURCE: Bill Chastain, MLB.com
Insight: John Ryan Murphy (.313, 1 HR, 3 RBI) will start behind the plate. McCann's first month in New York was a bit of a disappointment (.224 with three homers in April) but there's still plenty of time for him to turn things around.
 
4/26/2014 11:46:00 AM
Description: Yankees catcher Brian McCann will sit out Saturday to rest.

Description: New York catcher Brian McCann will get x-rays on his right index finger and taking a pitch off it in Sunday's game, according to Bryan Hoch of mlb.com.
Insight: He continued to play and isn't expected to miss time. Catcher's fingers are always getting nicked and its just part of the job. McCann was 4-for-11 with a pair of homers in the series with Boston.
