Mets' James McCann: Drives in one in two-hit day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCann went 2-for-4 with an RBI walk in a 4-1 win over the Cardinals on Thursday.

McCann had two singles, but his bases-loaded walk is what drove in a run Thursday. The catcher has struggled at the plate, slashing .222/.291/.264 in 79 plate appearances. Multiple Mets bats are underperforming to start the season, and McCann is one that they hope to get going soon. Thursday was just his second multi-hit game.

Mets' James McCann: On bench for nightcap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCann is not in the lineup for Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Cardinals, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

McCann went 0-for-3 with an RBI during Game 1, and it's not a surprise he won't be starting both games of the twin bill. Tomas Nido will start behind the plate in the nightcap for New York.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCann is not in the lineup for the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Rockies, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.

McCann unsurprisingly won't be asked to start twice in one day. He went 1-for-3 at the plate in the afternoon contest. Tomas Nido will catch Joey Lucchesi in the nightcap.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mets' James McCann: Slugs first Mets homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCann went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's 5-1 win over the Phillies.

The veteran catcher connected on his first homer as a Met in the eighth inning off JoJo Romero. McCann had only four hits in six games coming into Wednesday, but the big effort boosted his slash line to .280/.333/.400.

Mets' James McCann: Out of Game 2 lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCann is not in the lineup for Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Phillies, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.

McCann started behind the plate and went 1-for-4 during the matinee, so it's not a surprise he's taking a seat for the nightcap. Tomas Nido will catch for Marcus Stroman in Game 2.

Mets' James McCann: First day off Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mets' James McCann: Solid start to spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCann has gone 6-for-23 (.304) with a double and a 1:6 BB:K through eight Grapefruit League games.

Coming off a career-best .289/.360/.536 slash line in 2020, McCann is locked in as the Mets' starting catcher, but it's still reassuring that he's not struggling at the plate this spring. The 30-year-old will be looking to match or exceed the 18 homers and 60 RBI he racked up for the White Sox in 2019, and he could top the career-high 118 games he played that season, considering that his primary backup will be Tomas Nido, who owns a .553 OPS in the majors.

Mets' James McCann: Reaches deal with Mets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

White Sox's James McCann: Snaps hitless streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

White Sox's James McCann: Pops sixth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

White Sox's James McCann: Big night at the plate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

White Sox's James McCann: Scores two runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

White Sox's James McCann: Picks up two knocks, RBI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCann went 2-for-4 with two singles, an RBI and a run scored in Thursday's 9-0 win over the Tigers.

McCann drew the start behind the dish Thursday with Yasmani Grandal still nursing a back issue. The backstop picked up a pair of singles to raise his batting average to .341 on the campaign. McCann could start again Friday against the Cubs if Grandal is still unable to go.

White Sox's James McCann: Starts Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCann went 1-for-4 with a run scored in Tuesday's 10-4 win over Detroit.

With news that Chicago's primary catcher, Yasmani Grandal (back), could be out until the end of the week, the White Sox will need McCann or Zack Collins to fill in. McCann is slashing .325/.386/.550 over 44 plate appearances.

August 18, 2020 08:20 AM
White Sox's James McCann: Replaces Grandal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCann entered Monday's game after Yasmani Grandal was removed due to back stiffness. He went 0-for-1 in a 7-2 win over Detroit.

Grandal is listed as day-to-day, and McCann will be the primary replacement until Grandal is ready to return. Zack Collins is also in the mix for starts behind the plate.

White Sox's James McCann: Three-hit effort in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCann went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and an RBI single in Sunday's 5-4 extra-inning loss to Cleveland.

McCann went yard in the sixth inning off Cleveland starter Shane Bieber. In the 10th inning, McCann got the White Sox within a run with an RBI single before he was replaced by pinch runner Ryan Goins. The 30-year-old McCann has done well in limited time this year, slashing .360/.407/.720 with three homers, five RBI and five runs scored across 27 plate appearances.

White Sox's James McCann: Replaces Encarnacion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCann started at catcher and went 0-for-3 in Wednesday's 1-0 loss to the Brewers.

McCann was part of a lineup tweak that covered for the loss of Edwin Encarnacion (shoulder). Primary catcher Yasmani Grandal took over at designated hitter for Encarnacion while McCann made his fifth start of the season. If Encarnacion misses more time, we could also see Zack Collins fill in at DH.
