Tigers C James McCann launches walk-off home run Thursday

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/21/15) Tigers catcher James McCann played hero on Thursday, as he delivered a walk-off home run in the bottom of the 11th inning, as Detroit downed the Astros 6-5. The home run was his second of the season and his career.

"To be able to put a 'W' on the board, and be able to jog, is a lot nicer than having to sprint," McCann said, per MLB.com.

McCann has been getting the bulk of the playing time behind the plate with regular catcher Alex Avila on the disabled list.

McCann has been hitting well lately, as he's 9 for 25 over his last eight games. 

Tigers C Bryan Holaday has career-day on Thursday vs. Twins

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/14/15) Playing in his first game of the season, Tigers catcher Bryan Holaday had quite the afternoon against the Twins on Thursday. Holaday, who was recalled over the weekend when Alex Avila went on the disabled list, recorded a career-high three RBI as he went 3 for 5 on the afternoon.

Holaday hit the second home run of his career, a two-run shot in the bottom of the eighth inning, and finished a triple shy of the cycle.

"When I hit it, it was about as good as I could," Holaday said, per MLive.com. "Then I saw (Eduardo) Escobar go back to the wall and I thought he was going to catch it. So I was happy when I saw it go over."

He will likely return to the bench on Friday, as James McCann has been the regular catcher since Avila's injury.

Tigers catcher James McCann ready for new role as starter

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/10/15) Tigers catcher James McCann is ready to take over as the starter behind the plate and utilize information from injured Alex Avila, according to the Detroit Free Press.

"He has so much information that you only get from working with each individual pitcher," McCann said. "He's worked with (Justin) Verlander for years. He's worked with (David) Price for all last half season. He has information on each of those guys that no one has unless you've actually caught them like he has. So he's been able to help me out with a lot of those nuances. And just game-calling and just understanding different situations and controlling the running game, everything that goes into being a catcher."

Manager Brad Ausmus said McCann has an important role with pitching coach Jeff Jones to help organize all batter information and relaying it to pitchers.

"You don't want to turn it into white noise," Ausmus said. "There's kind of a trickle down effect, what Jonesy has, what the catcher gets and what he gives the pitcher."

McCann is hitting .313 with five RBI in 48 at-bats this season.

"It's probably a little sooner than I would have wanted him to face a bunch of righties, but it's kind of been necessitated at this point," McCann said. "I think he's up to the task. To me, he's a mentally strong kid."

Tigers' James McCann to see regular action at catcher

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/9/15) Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said Saturday that catcher James McCann will see the bulk of the starts behind the plate in the wake of the injury to Alex Avila, the Detroit Free Press reports.

McCann has served as the team's starter at catcher against left-handed pitchers but will now see regular action against righties with Avila sidelined. McCann has hit .295/.311/.432 with one home run and five RBI in 44 at-bats this season but has posted a .600 OPS against righties while delivering a .929 OPS against lefties.

Alex Avila scratched from Tigers' lineup for James McCann

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/8/15) The Tigers made a late change to their lineup for Friday's game. Alex Avila was scratched from the lineup, and James McCann will take his place at catcher, per MLive

Avila suffered a right forearm contusion in the eighth inning of Thursday's game, which will keep him out of the lineup, the team announced
