Tigers | James McCann to see more time

Sat, 09 May 2015 07:51:45 -0700

Detroit Tigers C James McCann will see a majority of the playing time while C Alex Avila (knee) is sidelined, according to manager Brad Ausmus.

Fantasy Tip: McCann ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has played well in his limited playing time and has at least one hit in each of his last six games. McCann could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore to consider since he will be the starter for the time being.

Fri, 08 May 2015 16:12:31 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Owners should look for any update on Avila's ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) status in the near future. McCann ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore to consider.

Tigers | Alex Avila out again Thursday

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 14:22:07 -0700

Detroit Tigers C Alex Avila is not in the starting lineup again Thursday, April 30. C James McCann is starting and hitting eighth in the batting order against Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy.

Fantasy Tip: Avila ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is hitting just .171 (7-for-41) with one home run and four RBI in April, and McCann ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) hit his first home run of his career (an inside-the-parker!) yesterday. Avila could likely use more rest over the course of the season, so it wouldn't be surprising to see McCann continue to take more starts away from Avila, at least against left-handers like today. McCann should be on the radar of owners in two-catcher or deep AL-only leagues.

Tigers | James McCann behind the plate

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 06:55:53 -0700

Detroit Tigers C James McCann will get the start at catcher Sunday, April 26, against the Cleveland Indians. McCann will bat eighth in the order against Indians SP Carlos Carrasco.

Fantasy Tip: McCann ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is off to a poor start in 2015 with a batting average of .174 through 25 plate appearances. Going up against a righty, McCann shouldn't be anywhere near FantasyScore lineups.

Tigers | Alex Avila out of the lineup

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 12:56:56 -0700

Detroit Tigers C Alex Avila is not in the starting lineup Monday, April 20. C James McCann will be the starting catcher for the Tigers.

Fantasy Tip: Avila ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is not playing since the team is facing a left-handed starter. McCann ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) only has one hit in his last 16 at-bats, so owners probably should look for better options to use.

Tigers | Alex Avila sitting out again

Sun, 19 Apr 2015 07:17:09 -0700

Detroit Tigers C Alex Avila is not in the starting lineup Sunday, April 19. C James McCann will be the starting catcher against the Chicago White Sox.

Fantasy Tip: The Tigers are facing a left-handed pitcher, so Avila ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) receives his second straight day off. McCann ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should not be a starting option in FantasyScore since he has not recorded a hit in his last 12 at bats.

Tigers | Alex Avila will not play

Sat, 18 Apr 2015 09:37:37 -0700

Detroit Tigers C Alex Avila is not in the starting lineup Saturday, April 18. C James McCann will be the starting catcher for the Tigers.

Fantasy Tip: Avila ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) probably will be back in the lineup Sunday, April 19, and is just receiving an off day. McCann ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has gone hitless in his eight at-bats and is a weak starting option on FantasyScore.

Tigers | Alex Avila resting Wednesday

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 11:23:40 -0700

Detroit Tigers C Alex Avila is not in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates left-handed SP Francisco Liriano Wednesday, April 15. C James McCann is catching and hitting seventh in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: McCann ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has only 20 total major league at-bats to his name. He's a very weak daily play today against Liriano and the Pirates.

Tigers | James McCann starting at catcher

Sun, 12 Apr 2015 07:12:18 -0700

Detroit Tigers C James McCann will start behind the plate Sunday, April 12, against the Cleveland Indians. McCann will bat eighth, behind OF Yoenis Cespedes and 3B Nick Castellanos.

Fantasy Tip: McCann ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is an intriguing option for owners in need of a cheap option at catcher. McCann had just 12 plate appearances in the majors last season, but hit .295 with seven home runs and stole nine bases in Triple-A in 2014. McCann is going for the cheapest possible price, and is part of a red-hot offense.
