McCann is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Astros, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports. This marks the second time in three games McCann will cede the catching duties for Detroit. Given his poor batting line and how well Alex Avila has been hitting as of late, it wouldn't be too surprising to see McCann giving way in favor of more starts to Avila until the latter cools off.
McCann is not in the lineup Monday against the Astros, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports. Despite collecting hits in the past two games, McCann will head to the bench as the Tigers continue to ride the hot-hitting Alex Avila, who will draw the start behind the dish and bat second.
McCann is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Angels. The Tigers are giving McCann the night off Friday after he made four consecutive starts behind the plate. Alex Avila will handle catching duties for Jordan Zimmermann as Detroit takes on Matt Shoemaker and the Angels. Look for McCann to draw back into the lineup Saturday against Ricky Nolasco.
McCann went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Tuesday's win over the Diamondbacks. McCann has just 11 hits and a .157 average this season, but he's gone deep seven times. Locked into a timeshare with Alex Avila, McCann provides a little bit of fantasy value due simply to his power potential whenever he's in the lineup.
McCann went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's loss to the Athletics. McCann has been essentially alternating starts with Alex Avila behind the plate, which limits the appeal of both players in standard leagues. McCann is also hitting just .149 this season, but he does now have six home runs.
