Braves' Brian McCann: Situated on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCann isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Royals.

McCann has pieced together a six-game hitting streak (10-for-24 over that stretch), but he's in line for a night off. Tyler Flowers is set to handle the catching duties and will bat eighth in McCann's absence.

Braves' Brian McCann: Slugs ninth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCann went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Nationals.

His sixth-inning blast chased Anibal Sanchez from the game and brought Atlanta to within a run, but it was also the team's only extra-base hit of the night. McCann hadn't gone yard since June 26, but he now has a modest five-game hit streak with multiple hits in his last three, boosting his slash line on the year to .279/.343/.470 with nine homers and 34 RBI through 56 games.

McCann went 2-for-4 with an RBI in Friday's 1-0 win over the Marlins.

After eight scoreless innings and a 148-minute rain delay, McCann finally ended things with a bases-loaded single in the bottom of the ninth.

Braves' Brian McCann: Reaches five times
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCann went 3-for-3 with a two-run home run, two runs and two walks in a 12-3 victory against the Mets on Monday.

The veteran catcher has been a little streaky, but teams are still finding it very difficult to get him out recently. He is 8-for-16 (.500) in his last five games, and all eight of those hits have come in three contests. He's showcased power too, hitting four homers with nine RBI during that span. Right now, one has to figure McCann is hot enough that he has to see regular time in the lineup. He is batting .303 with a .516 slugging percentage, seven home runs, 29 RBI and 15 runs in 122 at-bats this season.

Braves' Brian McCann: Plays hero against Phillies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

His solo shot off Nick Pivetta kickstarted Atlanta's rally from a 7-2 deficit, and he finished it with a walkoff two-run single in the bottom of the ninth. McCann has six homers and 27 RBI over 36 games, and his .824 OPS would be his highest mark since 2010 if he can keep it up.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCann went 2-for-4 with two homers, four RBI and two runs in a 7-5 rain-shortened game against the Pirates on Tuesday.

It was his first multi-homer game since Sept. 8, 2016. McCann is batting .282 with 10 extra-base hits, including five homers, 24 RBI and 12 runs in 110 at-bats this season.
