News: McCann is not in the lineup for the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Cubs, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. Impact: Rather than deploy McCann as a designated hitter in Game 2, after he caught Game 1, manager Joe Girardi will hold him out of the lineup entirely. McCann was hit in the finger by a deflected pitch Sunday, but X-rays were negative and it looks it's already a non-issue.(RotoWire, )

News: McCann (hand) is in the lineup for Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader with the Cubs, MLB.com's Bryan Hoch reports. Impact: McCann appears to have benefited from Tuesday's rainout, as the extra day of rest will not force him to miss any game action after he dealt with some finger soreness following Sunday's game against the Red Sox. He'll start at catcher in Game 1, but would likely be relegated to DH duty in the nightcap, if manager Joe Girardi chooses to use him in the lineup.(RotoWire, )

News: McCann underwent X-rays on his right hand Sunday, which were returned negative, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. Impact: McCann sustained the injury Sunday against the Red Sox, when a hit-by-pitch deflected off A.J. Pierzynski and hit the Yankees' catcher while in the crouch. Although there seems to be little worry regarding McCann's health, the fact that Francisco Cervelli has landed on the DL due to a Grade 2 right hamstring strain will result in a callup to bolster the catching ranks in New York.(RotoWire, )

News: The Yankees says X-rays on the right hand of catcher Brian McCann were negative. Impact: David Phelps hit A.J. Pierzynski with a pitch in the eighth inning of New York's 3-2 win over Boston on Sunday night, and the ball deflected off McCann's right index finger. McCann stayed in the game.(STATS, 5:13pm)

News: McCann will have an X-ray on his finger Monday, according to ESPN's Andrew Marchand. Impact: McCann was hit by a deflection off of A.J. Pierzynski when the latter was hit by a pitch. He stayed in the game and doesn't believe he will miss any time. Yankees fans and McCann owners will hold their breath however until the results are in.(RotoWire, )

News: McCann put an emphatic end to his season-opening slump, hitting his first two home runs for the New York Yankees to help beat John Lackey and the Boston Red Sox 7-4 Saturday. Impact: McCann entered with a pathetic .346 OPS so maybe he can turn his miserable April around.(STATS, 2:08pm)
Sat. Apr 12, 2014
News: McCann hit his first two home runs of the season in Saturday's 7-4 win over the Red Sox. Impact: Coming into Saturday's game, McCann was batting just .162 and had yet to record an extra-base hit, but the 30-year-old broke out with a pair of homers off John Lackey. It's a step in the right direction, and despite the slow start, a seventh straight 20-plus homer season seems inevitable.(RotoWire, )

News: McCann is not in the lineup Friday against the Red Sox, MLB.com's Bryan Hoch reports. Impact: McCann will take a seat against lefty John Lester, and Francisco Cervelli will man the backstop in his absence. A day off might do McCann some good, as the 30-year-old is hitting just .167 over his first nine games as a Yankee.(RotoWire, )

News: McCann will serve as the designated hitter Friday in Toronto, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. Impact: After receiving the day off Thursday, McCann will be back in the lineup, although not behind the plate.

News: McCann is not in the lineup versus the Astros on Thursday, according to ESPN's Andrew Marchand. Impact: This is nothing but a day off for one of the newest Yankees, as McCann should be back in the lineup Friday versus Toronto.(RotoWire, )
