Yankees | Brian McCann fouls ball off foot

Sat, 12 Jul 2014 17:01:13 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann (foot) fouled a ball sharply off his right foot Saturday, July 12. His X-rays were negative, and he hopes to play Sunday, July 13.

Fantasy Tip: McCann is hitting .359 in 39 at-bats since ditching his toe tap in his swing a week ago. The team could give him the day off Sunday before the All-Star break.

Yankees | Brian McCann not fit for NY?

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 09:08:18 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann hasn't played well in his time with the club, and his former hitting coach, Terry Pendleton, said McCann will "never be comfortable" in New York. "New York is not Brian," Pendleton said. "That's my opinion. I knew if he chose New York, there would be more than he expected or knew about. He'll never be comfortable with that." McCann is hitting only .230 with 10 home runs and 38 RBIs in 79 games this year. Pendleton believes McCann's tendency to pull the ball as the reason for his slow start.

Fantasy Tip: McCann is still one of the better options at the catcher position for power, but he isn't giving you much else, especially if he refuses to use the entire field.

Yankees | Five players with low OPS

Sun, 29 Jun 2014 23:51:14 -0700

The New York Yankees have five players with at least 200 at-bats who have an on base plus slugging percentage of .660 or lower, including free-agent pickups in 2B Brian Roberts, C Brian McCann and OF Carlos Beltran. The other two are SS Derek Jeter and OF Alfonso Soriano.

Fantasy Tip: And yet the Yankees are three games over .500. It just shows you how no one is running away with this division, but the fact is all five of these players carry fantasy risks because of the low OPS numbers.
