Brian McCann hoping to overcome offensive struggles in 2015
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Yankees catcher Brian McCann struggled offensively in 2014, his first season in New York. He posted his second-worst average in a season, hitting .232 with 23 home runs and 75 RBI.

"I didn't get off to a good start," McCann said to NJ.com. "I had some mechanical flaws in my swing, and it took me four months to get it ironed out."

McCann and the Yankees were in the bottom of the American League in 2014 with team offensive, but he thinks 2015 will be a different story.

"I think a lot of us are going to have bounce-back years offensively," McCann said.

Yankees' McCann trying to change approach to beat infield shifts
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Yankees catcher Brian McCann said he has spent the offseason working on ways he might be able to beat infield shifts in 2015, per the New York Post.

“Now that the shifting’s involved, it’s time for me to take a step back and figure out. Now I’ve got to beat the shift,” McCann said Wednesday. “I’ve hit a certain way for nine years. The shift obviously is more advanced. So hits that I’ve always had in the past are now outs. I hit .290, .280, now you’re hitting .240, .230. It’s time for me to make that adjustment, and I went into this offseason, and that’s where I’m at.”

McCann said he has worked on making tweaks to his hitting approach.

“I’m trying to shorten my swing up a little bit, trying to use the whole field,” McCann said. “Not just go up there and look for my pitch. Shorten up sometimes and take that hit to left. The more times you do that, they’ll stop shifting.”

McCann hit .286 with a .358 on-base percentage, .486 slugging percentage and .844 OPS overh is first seven MLB seasons. He has hit .238 with a .305 on-base percentage, .419 slugging percentage and .723 OPS over the last three seasons.

Brian McCann to work on slightly altering his approach in 2015
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Yankees catcher Brian McCann said he will alter his approach at the plate in 2015 to help counter the right-field shift teams have employed against him. McCann said he might even bunt more to neutralize the effectivness of the shift, but he said he won't make drastic changes, per NJ.com.

"I’m definitely going to change my approach a little bit," he told MLB Network's Hot Stove show Thursday. "But not drastically.

"I think there’s definitely times to bunt. Maybe leading off the inning down four or five runs or (with a) man on first, no outs, try to start a rally. But, you know, as far as hitting the ball the other way, that’s something I’ve definitely done going into spring training and then a month into the season you look up and you sacrifice power and driving the baseball. Or at least I do. That’s the line I have to walk. I’ve hit a certain way for a long, long time."
