    • McCann signed a four-year, $40 million contract with the Mets on Saturday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports. McCann has been close to a deal with the Mets for several days, but he now has a deal in place, pending a physical. The 30-year-old had a career-best .289/.360/.536 slash line with seven home runs and 15 RBI over 31 games with the White Sox in 2020, and he should take over as the Mets' primary catcher next season.

    • McCann went 2-for-2 with two walks, a solo home run and a second run scored in Saturday's 9-5 win over the Cubs. McCann snapped an 0-for-16 skid, going back to Sept. 15 when he laced his sixth home run, with his seventh homer in the second inning. He's had a second consecutive strong season, batting .289/.360/.536 over 31 games in 2020 as the backup to Yasmani Grandal.

    • McCann went 2-for-3 with a double, a home run, two RBI and two runs scored Tuesday against the Twins. McCann drove in his first run of the contest with an RBI double in the third inning. Four frames later he popped a solo home run, his sixth long ball of the season. He has a strong .329/.389/.595 line to this point in the campaign, but has only 90 plate appearances with Yasmani Grandal getting the majority of the playing time behind the dish.

    • McCann went 2-for-3 with two home runs and four RBI during the White Sox' 8-1 win over the Pirates on Wednesday. He also had a sacrifice fly. McCann took JT Brubaker deep twice, bringing his total to five home runs for the 2020 season -- with four against righties. Mostly a platoon option, McCann has counter-intuitively hit .435 in 23 at-bats versus lefties this season. McCann is a quality pitch framer to boot and has potential as a strong option should Yasmani Grandal to miss any time.

    • McCann went 2-for-4 with a double, two runs scored and a walk in Monday's win against the Twins. McCann was one of five White Sox who recorded multiple hits in this game, and the veteran catcher continues to provide offense even if his playing time has been scarce of late. McCann is currently riding a six-game hitting streak, with two multi-hit performances in that stretch.
