Brian McCann (elbow) remains out of the Yankees starting lineup on Saturday.

Jun 4 - 3:52 PM

Brian McCann is dealing with a hyperextended left elbow.

It now makes sense that he's been on the bench for three of four games. The good news is that it appears to be a minor issue. "I don't think it will be too long," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. Austin Romine is catching again on Friday.
Jun 3 - 5:01 PM

Brian McCann is not in the Yankees' lineup Friday.

The slumping McCann has now been benched for three out of the last four games, and this time it's when the opposition is starting a righty. There hasn't been any indication of an injury, so it appears he's just getting time to regroup. Austin Romine is catching.
Jun 3 - 4:09 PM

Brian McCann is out of the Yankees' starting lineup Thursday against the Tigers.

McCann sat against a left-hander Tuesday in Toronto (J.A. Happ) and he'll do the same against Tigers southpaw Matt Boyd. He's been mired in a deep slump, logging just one hit over his last 23 at-bats. Austin Romine will fill in behind the plate.
Jun 2 - 4:39 PM

Brian McCann is out of the Yankees' starting lineup Tuesday against the Blue Jays.

He's getting a day off with southpaw J.A. Happ on the hill for Toronto. Austin Romine will start behind the dish and catch CC Sabathia.
May 31 - 3:46 PM

Brian McCann is not in the Yankees' lineup Tuesday versus the Blue Jays.

He's likely just getting a breather. Austin Romine will start behind the plate and catch Nathan Eovaldi.
May 24 - 3:28 PM

Brian McCann is not in the Yankees starting lineup on Saturday.

McCann, who generally gets his off-days against left-handed pitching, will sit in favor of Austin Romine on Saturday. McCann is having a nice season offensively, slashing .258/.360/.425 with five homers and 17 RBI.
May 21 - 2:03 PM

Brian McCann is not in Monday's lineup against the Diamondbacks.

He'll take a seat against lefty Robbie Ray. Austin Romine will start behind the plate and catch right-hander Chad Green.
May 16 - 6:09 PM

Brian McCann is not in the Yankees' lineup Friday.

Not surprisingly, he's getting a night off against lefty Chris Sale. Austin Romine is catching, while Gary Sanchez is in the designated hitter spot.
May 13 - 3:34 PM

Brian McCann clubbed a solo homer Monday against the Royals.

McCann is up to four home runs and 12 RBI on the year to go along with a solid .267/.364/.442 batting line. He’s striking out in bunches — he struck out two more times on Monday — so the batting average isn’t likely to last, but his power is very valuable in fantasy leagues given the weak state of the catcher position.
May 9 - 10:04 PM

Brian McCann is not in the Yankees starting lineup on Saturday.

As he typically does, manager Joe Girardi will use a day game after a night game to rest his veteran backstop. Austin Romine will start in his place and bat ninth against David Price and the Red Sox.
May 7 - 10:53 AM

Brian McCann went 2-for-5 with a double and three RBI in Wednesday's 7-0 victory over the Orioles.

McCann singled in the sixth to drive in a run and later squeezed a two-RBI double down the right-field line in the eighth. The latter came off lefty T.J. McFarland, too, which was rather unexpected. McCann came into the game hitting .208/.296/.333 with just one extra-base hit against southpaws this year. The 32-year-old will need to hit for more power and drive in more runs, though, as his current .278 batting average will fall as his .354 BABIP regresses to his recent norms -- which has been in the .230s in three of the past four years.
May 4 - 11:17 PM

Brian McCann is not in the Yankees starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Red Sox.

He'll take a seat in favor of Austin Romine, who will bat nine for the Bombers on Sunday night. McCann is off to a solid start at the plate this season, slashing .262/.351/.415 with three homers and seven RBI in his first 19 games.
