Brian McCann (foot) remained out of the Yankees' lineup Sunday.

An MRI on McCann's sore left foot came back clean, but he's not ready to play yet. The catcher will test out the foot with some batting practice Sunday.
Jul 6 - 12:16 PM

Brian McCann was scratched from the Yankees starting lineup on Saturday due to a sore left foot.

The injury occurred during Thursday's game, and also caused the veteran backstop to sit out on Friday. He isn't expected to need a trip to the disabled list, and should return to the lineup in a day or two.
Jul 5 - 1:17 PM

Brian McCann will sit out Friday's game after tweaking his left foot during Thursday's win over the Twins.

McCann felt pain in the foot while pushing out of the box on a fifth-inning single. He was able to stay in the game after being checked on by the trainer, but with three day games in a row coming up, the Yankees didn't want to push it. "Pushing off in the box, it was my first step, it grabbed, it pinched," said McCann. "It hurt, so we just wanted to make sure nothing was seriously wrong."
Jul 4 - 9:33 AM

Brian McCann launched his ninth home run of the season on Friday, helping to power the Yankees to a 6-0 victory over the Red Sox.

McCann hasn't quite delivered the punch behind the plate that the Yankees expected when inking him to a free agent deal in the offseason, as he's hitting just .227/.287/.375 with nine homers and 36 RBI.

Brian McCann went 0-for-4 in the loss to the Blue Jays on Monday.

Since homering, tripling and driving in five runs last Wednesday, McCann has just two singles in 17 at-bats. His batting average is back down to .218, which is the lowest it's been in a month. One still imagines he'll get it together in the second half as he sees more AL pitchers the second and third times around, but it's been ugly so far.

Brian McCann is not in Saturday's lineup against the Orioles.

He'll rest with the day game after the night game. Francisco Cervelli will make the start behind the plate.
Jun 21 - 11:42 AM

Brian McCann finished 2-for-3 with a walk, a bases-clearing triple, and a two-run home run in Wednesday's win over the Blue Jays.

McCann is starting to catch fire. His fourth-inning homer off of Mark Buehrle was his eighth of the season, and his third in his last three games. He also unloaded the bases with a seventh-inning triple off of Chad Jenkins. McCann still has a long way to go to bring his numbers back to respectability, however. He's slashing .226/.286/.372 with 33 RBI.
Jun 18 - 10:17 PM

Brian McCann had a three-run double in Friday's 4-2 win over the Royals.

The game was tied 1-1 through two innings, but McCann put the Yankees ahead for good when he cleared the bases with a double to the left field corner in the top of the third inning. The 30-year-old had just three RBI over his previous 12 games combined. McCann is hitting just .231 with a .663 OPS through 55 games so far this season, which isn't exactly what the Yankees had in mind when they gave him a five-year, $85 million contract over the winter.
Jun 7 - 12:08 AM

Brian McCann hit a go-ahead RBI double in Saturday's win over the Twins.

The game was tied until McCann doubled off Brian Duensing in the bottom of the eighth inning. With a .232 batting average, the 30-year-old is off to a bit of a slow start with the Yankees, but he's still on pace for his seventh straight 20-homer season.
May 31 - 4:52 PM

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

Being a day game after a night game, it's a scheduled day of rest for the veteran backstop. John Murphy will get the start behind the dish and hit eighth against opposing hurler John Danks.
May 24 - 11:22 AM

Brian McCann launched a three-run homer in Friday's loss to the White Sox.

McCann hasn't exactly started his tenure with the Yankees on a high note, but he does have seven home runs in 42 games. While shifts have done a number on his batting average, he's on pace for yet another 20-homer season.
May 24 - 12:37 AM

Brian McCann went 3-for-4 with a walk and a two-run home run, but the Yankees fell to the Mets on Tuesday.

McCann took Zack Wheeler deep for a two-run homer in the first inning as the Yankees clawed back after falling behind 4-0 in the top half of the inning. McCann has five homers on the season but hasn't done much else at the plate, slashing .230/.271/.373.
May 13 - 11:30 PM

Brian McCann is not in the Yankees starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Angels.

It's simply a routine day of rest for the veteran backstop being a day game after a night game. J.R. Murphy will get the start behind the plate and hit ninth for the Yankees against Hector Santiago.
Apr 26 - 11:32 AM

Brian McCann went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's win over the Red Sox.

McCann doubled in a run in the third inning, just his second double of the season, and he scored on a Jacoby Ellsbury double in the fifth. After a slow start, McCann is up to .262 with a .431 slugging percentage. He's hit safely in seven of his last eight games.
