Yankees | Brian McCann adjusting to first base

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 15:02:47 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann is adjusting to playing first base. He's lined up there the last two games as Mark Teixeira (lat) remains sidelined. McCann said he has enjoyed the physical break from catching.

Fantasy Tip: He's heating up at the plate, too, so the break from crouching and his ability to stay in the lineup make for a fine combo of positive fantasy developments.

Yankees | Brian McCann rebounding

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 11:17:09 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann is hitting .310 since June 27, when hitting coach Kevin Long helped McCann eliminate the toe tap from his swing. McCann was batting .223 through his first 70 contests.

Fantasy Tip: If you can still buy McCann from a frustrated owner, go for it. His slow start looks like history now, and when you can find a catcher with this hot streak, it's worth your attention.

Yankees | Brian McCann not fit for NY?

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 09:08:18 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann hasn't played well in his time with the club, and his former hitting coach, Terry Pendleton, said McCann will "never be comfortable" in New York. "New York is not Brian," Pendleton said. "That's my opinion. I knew if he chose New York, there would be more than he expected or knew about. He'll never be comfortable with that." McCann is hitting only .230 with 10 home runs and 38 RBIs in 79 games this year. Pendleton believes McCann's tendency to pull the ball as the reason for his slow start.

Fantasy Tip: McCann is still one of the better options at the catcher position for power, but he isn't giving you much else, especially if he refuses to use the entire field.
