(7/7/2013) Tigers catching prospect James McCann, playing at Double-A Erie, replaced Chicago catcher Josh Phegley, who hit his first career homer Sunday, on the roster for Team USA in the Futures Game, MLB.com reports.
McCann was Detroit's top pick two years ago in the First-Year Player Draft. McCann struggled hitting in his first pro season but is batting .288 with 15 doubles, three homers and 36 RBI this season. Manager Jim Leyland said he's defensively good enough to play in the majors.
