Tigers' Avila could lose some playing time to James McCann in 2015


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/10/2014) Tigers manager Brad Ausmus has indicated catcher Alex Avila could see a lighter workload behind the plate in 2015, which means more work for rookie James McCann. Avila was behind the plate for 122 games in 2014.

"It's certainly open at this point," Ausmus said, per The Detroit News. "Clearly Alex has shown he has the ability to be an everyday catcher. He works well with the pitchers, they trust him. But I also think a guy like McCann has a very bright future. I like the way he catches."

Ausmus added Avila has no health limitations after enduring several concussions last season.

"A decision on who's No. 1 or No. 2 won't be made until spring training, or even if there is a No. 1 and a No. 2," Ausmus said. "Maybe there will be a split. I can't give you a full answer. All I can say is Alex is an established big-league catcher and I really like McCann. And (Bryan) Holaday did a really nice job as a backup last season. But a decision won't be made until March."


Report: C Alex Avila to remain starter for Tigers in 2015


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/29/2014) The Tigers plan to maintain Alex Avila as their starting catcher next season despite his issues with concussions and declining production since his peak season of 2011, but they will likely allow Avila to walk in free agency after the year in favor of promising James McCann, per the Detroit News.

Avila finished 2014 with a meager stat line of .218/.327/.359. His 61 walks in 390 at-bats and continued strength behind the plate were two pluses.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2014) The Tigers called up catcher James McCann from Triple-A Toledo Monday, upon the expansion of the active roster.

McCann, 24, hit .295/.343/.427 in 109 games at Toledo prior to making his major-league debut late in a 12-1 win over the Indians Monday. 


Tigers option four, re-assign four Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2014) The Tigers optioned pitchers Casey Crosby and Melvin Mercedes to Triple-A Toledo and pitcher Jose Valdez and catcher Ramon Cabrera to Double-A Erie Wednesday.

The team also re-assigned catcher James McCann and pitchers Robbie Ray, Duane Below and Drew VerHagen to minor-league camp Wednesday.


James McCann added to Futures roster


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(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.
