Tigers C James McCann, SS Jose Iglesias argue in dugout
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(8/7/15) Tigers catcher James McCann and shortstop Jose Iglesias exchanged words and a brief physical confrontation in the dugout between the top and bottom of the sixth inning Friday in a game going badly against Boston, MLive is reporting.
Iglesias shoved McCann in the chest and appeared to throw something at the catcher before being wrapped up by teammate Nick Castellanos.
It's unclear what precipitated the fight, but it was caught by TV cameras and shown during the broadcast.

Tigers' McCann getting increased PT again with Avila at first base
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(7/6/15) Tigers catcher James McCann drew back-to-back starts Saturday and Sunday against the Blue Jays after Alex Avila started in his first game off the disabled list Friday. Avila started at first base the last two games after Miguel Cabrera went on the disabled list.
McCann went 1 for 4 with a triple, one RBI and one strikeout Saturday before going 2 for 3 with one run, one RBI and one walk Sunday.
He has now hit safely in five straight games, batting .476 (10 for 21) with one double, one triple, two home runs, five RBI, five runs, one walk and three strikeouts.
Tigers C James McCann hits fourth homer of the year
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(7/1/15) Tigers catcher James McCann hit his fourth home run of the season during Wednesday's loss to the Pirates.
McCann went 2 for 4 with a solo home run in the ninth inning.
McCann is hitting .500 with seven hits, two home runs and three RBI over his last three games.
|2014 summary: For the second straight season, Tigers catching prospect James McCann hit at least 30 doubles, showing some modest power potential to complement his considerable defensive skills. Aside from a brief September stint in the majors, McCann spent all of 2014 at Triple-A Toledo. McCann batted. 295 with seven home runs, 54 RBI and nine stolen bases for the Mud Hens.|
Playing time status: McCann's defensive prowess could help him to win a role as a backup out of spring training, and even a starting role wouldn't be out of the question, should the Tigers move on from Alex Avila.
2015 outlook: Even in the event that McCann wins a starting role, he probably won't do enough with the bat to merit consideration in mixed leagues, other than in dynasty formats. For owners in single-season formats, he is strictly an AL-only option at best.
