    • Astros' Brian McCann: Not starting Saturday
      By RotoWire Staff

      McCann is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Angels. McCann is hitting well this month, posting an .815 OPS, but with the division in hand for the Astros, he'll get ample rest down the stretch. Evan Gattis will get the nod behind the plate in McCann's place.

    • McCann went 1-for-1 with a walk and a solo home run in Thursday's 3-1 loss to the White Sox. The Astros' vaunted attack was held in check by seven Chicago relievers after starter Carson Fulmer (blister) exited after facing just three batters. McCann's third-inning homer was all they could muster. It was McCann's 15th long ball of the season and just his second since July 25. The 33-year-old catcher has been babied to a certain extent this season; Thursday's contest was his 91st game played, the fewest games he's played in a season since his rookie year when he played 59 in 2005 for the Braves. That was also the only season in which he had fewer than 15 home runs.

      By RotoWire Staff

      McCann is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Mariners. McCann is hitting lefties better than righties this season, but manager A.J. Hinch is employing a lineup heavy on right-handed hitters Friday against Mariners starter James Paxton, so Evan Gattis will get the nod behind the plate.
