Brian McCann to work on slightly altering his approach in 2015
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(11/10/14) Yankees catcher Brian McCann said he will alter his approach at the plate in 2015 to help counter the right-field shift teams have employed against him. McCann said he might even bunt more to neutralize the effectivness of the shift, but he said he won't make drastic changes, per NJ.com.
"I’m definitely going to change my approach a little bit," he told MLB Network's Hot Stove show Thursday. "But not drastically.
"I think there’s definitely times to bunt. Maybe leading off the inning down four or five runs or (with a) man on first, no outs, try to start a rally. But, you know, as far as hitting the ball the other way, that’s something I’ve definitely done going into spring training and then a month into the season you look up and you sacrifice power and driving the baseball. Or at least I do. That’s the line I have to walk. I’ve hit a certain way for a long, long time."

|(9/24/14) Yankees catcher Brian McCann is on a roll, but he will be slowed by inactivity Wednesday against Baltimore. He is out of the lineup in favor of Francisco Cervelli.

Brian McCann maintaining September power surge

Brian McCann slugs 19th home run Saturday

|(9/13/14) Yankees catcher Brian McCann went 1 for 3 with a walk and a solo home run in his team's 3-2 win over the Orioles Saturday.
McCann put his team on the board with a second-inning home run, and the Yankees wouldn't relinquish the lead after scoring two more runs in the same inning. The catcher was 0 for 11 in his last three games before homering Saturday. He has hit .236/.290/.399 with 19 home runs and 65 RBI in 454 at-bats.
Brian McCann goes yard Wednesday
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(9/11/14) Yankees catcher Brian McCann belted his 18th home run Wednesday against the Rays.
McCann wasted no time getting down to business. With the bases empty in the first inning, McCann belted an 84 mph splitter out to right for the solo shot. He also singled and was hit by a pitch during the outing. McCann finished 2 for 3, with two runs scored and three RBI.
|2014 summary: Brian McCann's days as a contributor in the batting average category are getting further in the past, but in his first year as a Yankee, he extended his string of 20-homer seasons. McCann's 23 home runs ran his streak to seven straight seasons, but he needed an assist from Yankee Stadium, where he hit 19 homers. Frequent shifts and diminishing power conspired to crater McCann's batting average (.232), but he offset this loss by playing in 140 games, his highest total in four seasons. Starting 13 games as the Yankees' designated hitter and another 11 games as their first baseman helped McCann to finish as the seventh-ranking catcher in Fantasy value.|
Playing time status: McCann will return as the Yankees' starting catcher, and if last season was any indication, he will be in the lineup on close to a daily basis with occasional starts at first base and DH.
2015 outlook: Even though McCann is unlikely to hit for average and could see some power decline, he plays often enough and still has enough pop left to rank as a low-end No. 1 catcher for mixed leagues.
