  • Mets' James McCann: Surgery completed

    Mets manager Buck Showalter said McCann underwent successful surgery on his left wrist Tuesday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Showalter noted that McCann's procedure to repair a fractured hamate bone will likely keep the backstop on the shelf until late June. While McCann is on the mend from surgery, Tomas Nido and Patrick Mazeika are expected to split work behind the dish.

  • Mets' James McCann: Out six weeks with broken wrist

    McCann underwent X-rays on Friday and was diagnosed with a fractured hamate in his left wrist which will require surgery.

    The 31-year-old was held out of the lineup Friday for the third straight game and will now be unavailable for the next six weeks. McCann has struggled early in the season with a .196/.266/.286 slash line, but losing his defensive prowess behind the plate is a significant blow for the Mets. Tomas Nido is poised to step in as New York's primary catcher while Patrick Mazeika was recalled to fill the No. 2 role.

  • Mets' James McCann: Sitting again Friday

    McCann (wrist) is out of the lineup for Friday's game versus the Mariners, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

  • Mets' James McCann: Tending to sore wrist

    Manager Buck Showalter said McCann is being held out of the lineup for Thursday's game in Washington due to a sore left wrist, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.

    The injury explains why McCann is on the bench for a second straight day while Tomas Nido picks up another turn behind the dish. Showalter didn't seem too concerned about the injury to McCann's non-throwing wrist, and the Mets believe the backstop will be ready to resume catching duties during the team's upcoming weekend series with the Mariners.

  • Mets' James McCann: On bench in second straight

    McCann is out of the lineup for Thursday's game in Washington, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    McCann will sit for the second game in a row and may have fallen into a timeshare at catcher with Tomas Nido at this stage. Though both catchers' defensive abilities is valued more than what they contribute at the plate, the Mets likely expected better from McCann than the career-worst .552 OPS he's provided through 64 plate appearances this season.

  • Mets' James McCann: Three hits in Tuesday's win

    McCann went 3-for-4 with a double, a run scored and an RBI in Tuesday's 3-0 win over the Cardinals.

    The veteran catcher came into Tuesday with only four hits in 12 games, but he nearly doubled that total in one night. McCann's sluggish beginning to the season has left him with a .194/.286/.333 slash line, but he's in no danger of losing his starting spot behind the plate and should compile decent counting stats even if his overall performance doesn't improve significantly. That said, he posted an .896 OPS as recently as 2020, and the 31-year-old could still have a lot left in the tank.

  • Mets' James McCann: On bench Monday

    McCann will sit Monday against the Cardinals.

    McCann seems to be barely ahead of Tomas Nido on the depth chart at the moment, as the pair have alternated starts behind the plate for the last eight games. McCann hasn't made a very good case for a true starting role, as he's hitting .125/.237/.250 on the year.

    McCann went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in a 6-5 victory over the Diamondbacks on Friday.

    McCann extended New York's lead to 5-1 with a 452-foot bomb to left off reliever J.B. Wendelken but failed to be productive in his other three at-bats. The homer was the backstop's first of the season and he's been better of late with hits in three of his last four games, but still owns a dismal .138 average through nine games.
