FANTASY BASEBALL PLAYER ANALYZER REVISITED: BRIAN MCCANN CATCHER NEW YORK YANKEES

                                                                

A month ago I did a post on free agent catcher Brian McCann and his possible projected stat outlook for the 2014 fantasy baseball season.  The caveat was the fact that projection was subject to change some given the location McCann would call home for 2014 once he decided on his new club.  The projection that I had given McCann before he signed a five-year contract with the New York Yankees for $85 million Saturday was the following:

2014 PROJECTION:  .265 23 HR 63 RBI 56 R 1 SB

Given McCann's new locale, it is now time to up those numbers some due to the fact he now will be playing half of his games in one of the best home runs parks in the majors.  In addition, McCann will also have the added luxury of playing some games at DH in order to keep his bat in the lineup which will help his counting stats.  You always want to try and get as many starts as you can out of your catcher and those who play in the AL and can DH are always given a nice boost.  While McCann remains a bit of a batting average liability no matter where he plays due to his struggles against lefties and due to the strict shift opposing defenses play against him, his power is top notch for a catcher and in Yankee Stadium he should be able to reach 25 home runs with good health.  In addition, McCann should also see a slight uptick in RBI and runs again due to his park and for the increase in starts while DHing on some days.   Whereas it once looked like McCann's fantasy baseball was pointing downward after his awful 2012 campaign with the Atlanta Braves, the arrow is now sharply facing the other direction given his new digs.

REVISED 2014 PROJECTION:  .267 25 HR 77 RBI 62 R 2 SB
