Tigers' James McCann starts third straight game

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/20/15) Tigers catcher James McCann is making his third straight start behind the plate Monday against the Yankees.

Alex Avila started seven of the team's first eight games at catcher, but he's been limited to pinch-hit and defensive-sub duty in recent days as the Tigers have faced three straight lefty starters. He's hit .182/.400/.318 in 22 at-bats.

McCann is starting behind the plate for the fifth time this season, all against left-handed opposing pitchers. He's 2 for 8 against lefties and 1 for 11 against righties this season.

The Tigers are favorites (-118) against the Yankees Monday.

Tigers' James McCann breaks slump with rare triple

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/20/15) Tigers catcher James McCann was hitless in his last 13 at bats, entering Sunday's game. 

He broke the slump in a big way, hitting his first triple since July 28, 2013, when he was with Double-A Erie. 

"To be honest, when I was getting close to second I was a little surprised I could keep running," McCann said, per MLive. "I almost missed second. But I'm just glad I could hit the ball hard a few times today and help get our team a W."

McCann said it was just the third triple he's hit since college, counting one he hit in the Dominican Winter League in November, 2013. 

Manager Brad Ausmus was impressed with McCann's swing.

"I think we're seeing that James McCann is a strong human," he said. "Although he didn't hit for a lot of power in the minors, it wouldn't shock me if a few years down the road he was hitting for more power."

Tigers' Castellanos in lineup, Avila misses second straight start

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/19/15) Tigers third baseman Nick Castellanos is back in the starting lineup after serving as a pinch-hitter Saturday, while catcher Alex Avila is not in the starting lineup for a second straight day.

Castellanos managed an RBI single in his only at-bat Saturday to extend his hitting streak to six games. He has hit .282/.341/.462 with one home run and four RBI in 39 at-bats.

Avila entered Saturday's blowout loss in the seventh inning to play three innings at first base, just his second career appearance at the position. He has hit .190/.414/.333 in 21 at-bats. James McCann, who is 2 for 15 after going hitless in four at-bats Saturday, is behind the plate for a second straight game.

The Tigers are favorites (-135) against the White Sox Sunday, per VegasInsider.com.

Tigers' Victor Martinez in lineup Sunday, Alex Avila not starting

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/12/15) Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez is in the starting lineup for Sunday's matchup with the Indians.

Martinez left Saturday's game in the seventh inning after feeling a pinch in his kneecap. However, he is able to fill his regular role for the Tigers and will bat cleanup behind Miguel Cabrera.

Catcher Alex Avila is not in Sunday's lineup; James McCann will get the start behind the plate.

The Tigers are underdogs (+100) against the Indians Sunday.

Ausmus: James McCann will start over Alex Avila vs. most LHPs

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/8/15) Tigers catcher James McCann will get the start over Alex Avila against the majority of left-handers this season, manager Brad Ausmus told reporters on Wednesday, per the Detroit Free Press.

Avila is a career .215 hitter against left-handed hitters. McCann slashed .280/.353/.414 against left-handers in the minors, and has only 12 career at-bats in the majors.
