Brian McCann is not in the Yankees' starting lineup Thursday night against the White Sox.

John Ryan Murphy will start at catcher for the Yankees and bat sixth versus Chicago left-hander Chris Sale. It's a very righty-heavy lineup for New York.
Sep 24 - 3:25 PM

Brian McCann connected for a two-run homer and drew a walk against the Mets on Saturday.

His sixth-inning blast off Noah Syndergaard provided some extra wiggle room for the Yankees' bullpen. McCann is hitting just .212 since the start of July, but he has gone deep 14 times in the same timespan. He already has a career-high 26 home runs on the year. With 90 RBI, he still has time to top the career-best 94 RBI he had in 2009.

Brian McCann smacked a game-tying, three-run home run in Sunday's comeback victory over the Rays.

McCann took Chris Archer deep with two outs to knot the game up at 3-3. Alex Rodriguez then followed with a longball of his own and the Bombers never looked back. The home run was McCann's second in the series and gave him a career-high 25 for the season. He sports a .245/.329/.483 batting line.

Brian McCann is not in the Yankees starting lineup for Saturday afternoon's contest against the Rays.

Brian McCann is not in the Yankees' lineup Wednesday.

Sep 2 - 1:09 PM

Brian McCann went 1-for-2 with a three-run homer, four total RBI and three walks in Friday's 15-4 demolition of the Braves.

McCann joined the party late, but he at least brought a nice bottle of wine in the form of a three-run homer in the eighth inning. By season's end, the catcher's numbers--across the board--should surpass what he did in 2014. It's very likely that he'll end up setting personal-bests for home runs (he's hit 24 twice) and RBI (he drove in 94 in 2009). Right now, he's slashing .247/.319/.477 with 23 homers and 83 RBI.

McCann wasn't brought home after any of his three singles, but drew a crucial walk to load the bases with no outs in the bottom of the ninth inning. Carlos Beltran then knocked in the game's only run with a walk-off sacrifice fly. McCann has a solid .248/.317/.474 triple-slash line along with 22 home runs and 75 RBI on the year.
Aug 24 - 10:24 PM

Brian McCann swatted his 22nd home run of the season on Saturday, helping to propel the Yankees to a 6-2 victory over the Indians.

The Yankees came out of the gate swinging against opposing hurler Danny Salazar, with Brett Gardner launching a two-run homer and McCann blasting a solo shot in the very first inning. McCann would later add a single, finishing the afternoon 2-for-4. He has been one of the top offensive performers at the catcher position in all of baseball this season, slashing .244/.313/.475 with 22 homers and 75 RBI.

Aug 18 - 3:30 PM

Brian McCann went 3-for-5 with a two-run single and a three-run home run as the Yankees beat the Twins in 10 innings on Monday.

McCann gave the Yankees an early 3-0 lead when he parked a Kyle Gibson offering into the seats in right field in the first inning. He added a two-run single in the third to help the Yankees retake a 5-4 lead. McCann is now hitting .249/.319/.481 with 21 home runs and 74 RBI. It seems likely he'll surpass his career-high of 24 homers.
