McCann is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against Seattle, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports. McCann gets a regular day off after starting the past two games, including a 1-for-4 day with three RBI during Saturday's contest. Evan Gattis will set up behind the dish in his stead.
McCann went 1-for-4 with three RBI against the Mariners on Sunday. McCann's three-run double in the seventh inning helped the Astros with some much-needed insurance, as they went on to win 5-2. He now has 15 RBI in his last 15 games and is slashing .268/.351/.475 in 211 plate appearances in 2017.
McCann went 1-for-4 with a solo homer in Friday's 2-1 loss to the Red Sox. Houston's prolific offense was held in check by Drew Pomeranz all night until McCann unloaded on him in the bottom of the seventh inning, launching his 10th home run of the season into the upper deck in right field. The long ball was McCann's fourth in the last nine games, a stretch in which he's hitting .361 with nine RBI and 11 runs scored. It took McCann about a week after his return from the 7-day concussion list to get his groove back.
McCann is out of the lineup Sunday against the Angels. McCann is in the midst of his hottest stretch of the season with a .474 average, three homers, six RBI and eight runs in his last five starts, but he'll still be in line for a couple days off per week as the Astros look to preserve his health for the long haul. Evan Gattis gets a turn behind the plate while McCann gets a breather.
McCann went 4-for-4 with a solo home run, a double, two RBI and two runs during Wednesday's loss to Kansas City. The backstop has been sneaky good this season and sports a .287/.381/.491 slash line with six homers, 26 RBI and 16 RBI through his past 30 games. It's also encouraging to see McCann homer in consecutive starts after spending a week on the 7-day concussion disabled list and going just 1-for-16 through his fist five games after being activated. Hitting in the middle of a juggernaut offense provides an excellent fantasy setup for the veteran, too.
