White Sox's James McCann: Signs with White Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCann agreed to a contract with the White Sox on Friday, Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports.

McCann will provide some additional catching depth on Chicago's roster behind Welington Castillo after the team traded away Omar Narvaez two weeks ago. During 118 games with the Tigers this past season, McCann hit just .220/.267/.314 with eight home runs and 39 RBI after having a solid season at the dish in 2017. The 28-year-old should only be considered as a fringe option in two-catcher leagues heading into spring training.

James McCann: Expected to hit open market
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Tigers will not tender McCann a contract for the 2019 season, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

As expected, McCann will head to free agency after making just shy of $2.4 million this past season. The backstop slashed just .220/.267/.314 with eight home runs and 39 RBI in 118 games in 2018 and general manager Al Avila previously stated that the club would face a tough decision with McCann due to the Tigers being in a rebuilding mode. Look for McCann to find a home as a reserve catcher in 2019.

Tigers' James McCann: Not guaranteed to return in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tigers general manager Al Avila said McCann, who is arbitration eligible this offseason, might not return to the Tigers in 2019, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

McCann signed a one-year, $2.4 million deal last offseason to avoid arbitration, but Avila sounded less sure the team would take a similar approach this year. "I think there's more potential in there but he's getting to that point now where he's getting close to free agency and starting to make a little bit more money - so we have to make a tough decision," Avila said of McCann. The 28-year-old has had a disappointing season, and with the Tigers in rebuild mode, they could try to go younger at the catcher spot. Jake Rogers, who came over from Houston in the Justin Verlander trade, is waiting in the wings, and current backup Grayson Greiner could serve as a stopgap if Rogers isn't ready in 2019.

Tigers' James McCann: Out of Saturday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCann is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Brewers, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

With the Tigers simply playing out the string in a losing season, they'll give McCann a day off as Grayson Greiner slips into the lineup. McCann, who has a disappointing .220/.267/.314 slash line in 117 games this season, will likely start the season finale Sunday.
