McCann is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Rays, according to Newsday's Erik Boland.

McCann caught all 12 innings and hit a walk-off home run in Friday's extra-inning victory over the Rays, so he will get a well-deserved day off with the Yankees playing Saturday afternoon. John Ryan Murphy will get the start behind the plate in McCann's place.

McCann is out of the lineup Monday against the Angels, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.

McCann went 3-for-4 with a walk, an RBI and a run scored Thursday against the Marlins.

McCann's second year in New York is going much better than the first, as he's reverted to essentially the Atlanta version of himself -- a catcher who can hit over .260 with more than 20 homers. Better yet, the Yankees lineup is helping him pad his counting stats, perhaps setting McCann up for the first 100-RBI campaign of his career.
