New York Yankees C Brian McCann spent this offseason trying to conquer the challenges of a defensive shift against him. McCann has dropped to .238/.305/.419 in the last three years, and he hit just .232 in his first season with the Yanks. "I'm trying to shorten my swing up a little bit, trying to use the whole field," McCann said. "Not just go up there and look for my pitch. Shorten up sometimes and take that hit to left. The more times you do that, they'll stop shifting."
