Tigers | James McCann starting Sunday

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 06:50:08 -0700

Detroit Tigers C James McCann will start behind the plate and hit seventh in the order Sunday, July 5, against the Toronto Blue Jays and RHP Marco Estrada. C Alex Avila will start at first base.

Fantasy Tip: McCann ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is 8-for-18 over his last four starts, and he hit one double, one triple and two home runs over that span. McCann can still offer some cap relief for FantasyScore owners, and he's an excellent option at the catcher position.

Tigers | Alex Avila will start at 1B

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 07:37:39 -0700

Detroit Tigers C Alex Avila will start at first base against Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey Saturday, July 4, and is batting fifth in the lineup. C James McCann will start at catcher and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known if Avila ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) will be a candidate to be the regular first baseman with Miguel Cabrera out but is receiving the first start at the position. He is just coming off the disabled list, so owners on FantasyScore may want to see him in a few games before using him. McCann ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has recorded seven hits in each of his last three games and could be a starting option on FantasyScore.

Tigers | James McCann hits walk-off

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 16:39:18 -0700

Detroit Tigers C James McCann went 2-for-4 with a game-winning, solo home run and two runs scored in a 5-4 win over the Chicago White Sox Sunday, June 28, and he joined retired OF Tim Salmon as the only players with at least two game-winning home runs in the first 61 games of their career.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the walk-off homer, McCann ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) hasn't been doing much this month. His big games are too sporadic to warrant consideration at FantasyScore.

Tigers | James McCann returns to lineup

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 10:50:02 -0700

Detroit Tigers C James McCann is back in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP John Danks Saturday, June 27, batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: McCann ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is only batting .193 during the month of June but he is 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI in his career against Danks. That small sample size probably isn't enough to justify starting him in FantasyScore today.

Tigers | James McCann sitting out

Sun, 21 Jun 2015 07:40:27 -0700

Detroit Tigers C James McCann is not in the starting lineup against Masahiro Tanaka Sunday, June 21. C Bryan Holaday will start at catcher and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: McCann ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) should return to the lineup in the next game or two. Holaday ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is hitting only .214 in limited playing time this month and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Tigers | James McCann not in the lineup

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 12:24:33 -0700

Detroit Tigers C James McCann is not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP Adam Warren Friday, June 19. C Bryan Holaday will be the starting catcher and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: McCann ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return to the lineup soon. Holaday ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is hitting .259 with eight RBI in limited playing time this season, but owners probably could find better options to use.

Tigers | James McCann not in Thursday lineup

Thu, 18 Jun 2015 12:02:49 -0700

Detroit Tigers C James McCann is out of the starting lineup Thursday, June 18. C Bryan Holaday is in his place.

Fantasy Tip: McCann ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is likely out because the Tigers went 13 innings with the Cincinnati Reds and the Tigers want a catcher in there who may have fresh knees. Holaday has a .286 average in the past week, but there are likely catchers out there with a similar price who may make better alternatives.

Tigers | Bryan Holaday starting

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 07:05:10 -0700

Detroit Tigers C Bryan Holaday is starting at catcher and hitting seventh in the order Sunday, June 14, against the Cleveland Indians and RHP Corey Kluber. C James McCann will come out of the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Holaday ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) has just two hits since going 3-for-5 in his season debut. With the difficult matchup against Kluber, Holaday won't even be an option for those looking to punt the catcher position.

Tigers | James McCann impresses Angels manager

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 00:06:21 -0700

Detroit Tigers C James McCann impressed Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim manager Mike Scioscia, himself a former catcher. "It looks like he's got all the tools and you never know where it leads for a career but, yeah, he's impressive," Scioscia said.

Fantasy Tip: McCann ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is turning a lot of heads with his decision-making and his .286 batting average and two home runs. You may want to see what the Tigers do when Alex Avila is healthy and returns to the active roster, as speculation has McCann making the leap to No. 1.

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.
