FANTASY BASEBALL HOT STOVE BREAKING NEWS: YANKS INK CATCHER BRIAN MCCANN TO FIVE YEAR DEAL FOR $85 MILLION

                                                               

The New York Yankees reeled in the first big fish of the Hot Stove season as they signed free agent catcher Brian McCann to a five-year deal worth $85 million.  There is also a vesting option for a sixth year which could bring the total package to $100 million. 

Analysis:  This is big news for McCann's 2014 fantasy baseball value as he will now get to hit in a tremendous home run park in Yankee Stadium and also have the ability to DH at times which will help boost his counting stats.  McCann hit .256 with 20 home runs in only 102 games last season while playing half of his outings in a pitcher's park.  He should be able to better those numbers easy this season and McCann is a sure fire top five fantasy baseball catcher.
