Tigers GM: James McCann can be everyday starter
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski said Tuesday he has all the faith in the world catcher James McCann can be a starter in the majors.

"He's a guy we look forward to being an everyday starter at the major league level," Dombrowski said. 

McCann appeared in nine games for Detroit in 2014, hitting .250 in 12 at-bats with two runs scored. McCann is currently the third catcher on the Tigers' roster, behind Alex Avila and Bryan Holaday.

Tigers' Avila could lose some playing time to James McCann in 2015
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus has indicated catcher Alex Avila could see a lighter workload behind the plate in 2015, which means more work for rookie James McCann. Avila was behind the plate for 122 games in 2014.

"It's certainly open at this point," Ausmus said, per The Detroit News. "Clearly Alex has shown he has the ability to be an everyday catcher. He works well with the pitchers, they trust him. But I also think a guy like McCann has a very bright future. I like the way he catches."

Ausmus added Avila has no health limitations after enduring several concussions last season.

"A decision on who's No. 1 or No. 2 won't be made until spring training, or even if there is a No. 1 and a No. 2," Ausmus said. "Maybe there will be a split. I can't give you a full answer. All I can say is Alex is an established big-league catcher and I really like McCann. And (Bryan) Holaday did a really nice job as a backup last season. But a decision won't be made until March."

Report: C Alex Avila to remain starter for Tigers in 2015
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Tigers plan to maintain Alex Avila as their starting catcher next season despite his issues with concussions and declining production since his peak season of 2011, but they will likely allow Avila to walk in free agency after the year in favor of promising James McCann, per the Detroit News.

Avila finished 2014 with a meager stat line of .218/.327/.359. His 61 walks in 390 at-bats and continued strength behind the plate were two pluses.
