by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(7/27/2016) Hanigan will need another couple of days before he fully recovers from flu-like symptoms, Julian Benbow of the Boston Globe reports.

Hanigan was a late scratch from Tuesday's game and sat out another Wednesday, though manager John Farrell said he was available "in an emergency." This means Sandy Leon will be the starting the backstop until Hanigan is ready for a full nine innings.


Yankees' Brian McCann: Socks first post-break homer
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(7/27/2016) McCann provided all the offense for the Yankees in Wednesday's loss to Houston with a solo homer -- his lone hit to go with two strikeouts in four at-bats.

The veteran backstop hadn't homered since before the All-Star break -- July 8 -- and after collecting six hits in his final two games before the break, he still only has five hits in 10 games since. For a while there in April, it looked like we might get a bit more batting average out of McCann, but it now looks like he's destined to hit around .230 for the fourth time in five years.
