      Tigers' James McCann: Gets the day off Sunday

      McCann is out of the lineup Sunday against the Rays. Chalk it up as a regular day off for the Tigers' primary backstop, as McCann will give way to Jarrod Saltalamacchia behind the plate for the afternoon contest.

      Tigers' James McCann: Not in Wednesday's lineup

      McCann is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Twins. McCann will be held out in favor of Jarrod Saltalamacchia on Wednesday with the Tigers playing a day game following a night game. McCann's second day off in three days could do him some good, as he is just 4-for-36 (.111) with no extra-base hits and 14 strikeouts since being activated from the disabled list earlier this month.

      Tigers' James McCann: Not starting Monday versus Twins

      McCann is not in the starting lineup Monday against the Twins. McCann has not been great at the plate lately, as he's only collected three hits over the past week, although that actually raised his batting average to a poor .125. Jarrod Saltalamacchia will fill in for him behind the plate Monday.

      Tigers' James McCann: Still trying to re-establish swing after DL stint

      McCann has back-to-back hits in his last two games for the second time this season, but is still struggling overall with a .125 batting average (6-for-48). McCann's OBP is a dismal .192 and he has 17 strikeouts in 51 plate appearances. He has really struggled to re-establish himself in the batter's box after a two-week stint on the DL for a sprained right ankle. McCann's stroke should return -- he hit .264 over 114 games in 2015 -- but right now, his bat should be on your bench.

      Tigers' James McCann: Is not in Thursday's lineup

      McCann is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Tigers. McCann was activated from the DL on Tuesday and started two consecutive games, so the Tigers are likely giving him a day to rest to ease him back into the swing of things. He is just 2-for-20 to start the season but should improve drastically once he gets back in a rhythm.

      Tigers' James McCann: In the lineup Tuesday

      McCann is in Tuesday's lineup against the Indians. McCann was activated off the disabled list earlier in the day, but it wasn't clear yet at the time if he'd been joining the lineup immediately. He'll handle the catching duties Tuesday and bat seventh against Cleveland starter Josh Tomlin.

      Tigers' James McCann: Activated from DL

      McCann (ankle) was officially activated from the disabled list Tuesday. As expected, McCann will rejoin the Tigers on Tuesday, but it's unclear at this point if he'll be available for the evening's matchup with Cleveland. Jarrod Saltalamacchia has served as Detroit's primary catcher with McCann on the DL, and the two could end up splitting duties, assuming Salatalmacchia, who has six home runs in 60 at-bats, regresses to the mean as a power source.

      Tigers' James McCann: Set to rejoin Tigers on Tuesday

      McCann (ankle) will catch two more games with Triple-A Toledo before re-joining the team on Tuesday, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports. He should return to being the Tigers' starting catcher next week, serving as a solid replacement-level catcher in mixed leagues. A career .259 hitter, McCann likely won't do much damage in that department, but he also won't help much with counting stats.

      Tigers' James McCann: No hits, but two walks in first rehab assignment

      McCann (ankle) went 0-for-3 with two walks Tuesday for Triple-A Toldedo in the first game of his rehab assignment. Nice start, but he was the designated hitter and still hasn't squatted behind the plate for more than a bullpen session. McCann is expected to be behind the dish Wednesday for Toledo, so Thursday morning will tell the tale about fatigue and relative readiness for return to the Tigers.
