Brian McCann C/1B/DH NYY 2 weeks ago

McCann went 0-for-2 but drove in his first run of the spring in Sunday's Grapefruit League win over the Phillies.

McCann figures once again to see the everyday duties behind home plate while slotting into the middle of the Yankees' lineup. After a disappointing 2014 campaign in which he maintained a career-worst .232 batting average, he's gotten off to a slow spring start with a slash line of .158/.190/.211 through eight Grapefruit League appearances. McCann also appeared in 30 games between first base and as the team's DH last season to keep him in the lineup even when he needed a day off from catching, but with the offseason acquisition of Garrett Jones and the team working out Alex Rodriguez at first, it's possible the 31-year-old will see increased time behind the plate this year.

The catcher had been a slump, hitting .167 in his previous 24 at-bats, but broke out in a big way Sunday. Though there's been a sizable dip in his batting average this season, McCann has still come through in the power department, contributing 22 homers and 71 RBI.

McCann went 2-for-4 with a solo homer in Sunday night's loss to the Orioles.

The 2014 campaign has been mostly frustrating for McCann, but the seven-time All-Star seems intent on finishing strong. Through 12 games this month, the 30-year-old catcher has put up a .947 OPS with five home runs and nine RBI. Sunday's roundtripper was number 20 on the season for McCann, as he has now reached that mark for the seventh consecutive year.
