2019 FANTASY BASEBALL STOCK WATCH: BRIAN McCANN REUNITES WITH BRAVES ON ONE-YEAR DEAL

                                                                   

Feeling perhaps nostalgic, the Atlanta Braves took a page out of their past when they brought back free agent catcher Brian McCann on a one-year deal worth $2 million.  A former perennial All-Star with the team before departing for the New York Yankees a number of years ago, McCann's is clearly in the final stages of his career as he was essentially pushed to the side by the Houston Astros during the second half of 2018 in favor of Max Stassi and Martin Maldonado.  Turning 35 in February, McCann is expected to work in a timeshare with fellow veteran backstop Tyler Flowers and that will neuter both of their fantasy baseball value for 2019.  As it is, McCann comes off a 2018 campaign when he hit just .212 with 7 home runs in 189 at-bats as his bat is growing slower by the day and the K's pile up.  As always, you can't live in the past when it comes to evaluating former top-tier fantasy baseball hitters or pitchers and this goes for McCann this season.
