  • Mets' James McCann: Not in Friday's lineup

    McCann will sit Friday against the Pirates.

    McCann remains atop the Mets' depth chart at catcher, but he and Friday's starter Tomas Nido have generally alternated turns behind the plate in recent weeks. McCann's .549 OPS on the season gives him minimal fantasy value even if he found himself in the lineup more consistently.

  • Mets' James McCann: Notches steal in loss

    McCann went 0-for-1 with a walk and a stolen base in Saturday's 7-1 loss to the Nationals.

    McCann tried to spark the Mets' offense in the fifth inning, but Brandon Nimmo couldn't bring him home after the catcher's two-out steal. This was McCann's third steal of the season, putting him one back of his career high from 2019. He's added a paltry .188/.243/.273 slash line, two home runs, 13 RBI, 12 runs scored and five doubles in 46 contests this season. The 32-year-old has just one multi-hit effort in 16 games since returning from an oblique injury Aug. 4.

  • Mets' James McCann: On bench Friday

    McCann will sit Friday against the Nationals.

    Neither McCann nor Friday's starter Tomas Nido looks like a true starting catcher at the moment. McCann's .515 OPS certainly isn't starter material, but Tomas Nido's .534 OPS isn't much better.

  • Mets' James McCann: Takes seat Tuesday

    McCann is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game in Atlanta.

    Coming out of the weekend, McCann appeared to be moving into the No. 2 role at catcher before Tomas Nido (illness) was placed on the COVID-19-related injured list Monday. After going 1-for-7 with an RBI while starting in both of the last two games, McCann will take a seat, though he'll likely rank ahead of Michael Perez on the depth chart for the duration of Nido's absence.

  • Mets' James McCann: Steals rare bag

    McCann went 1-for-4 with a run scored and a stolen base in Wednesday's 10-2 rout of the Reds.
