McCann is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

McCann is hitting well this month, posting an .815 OPS, but with the division in hand for the Astros, they are giving him ample rest down the stretch. Evan Gattis will get the nod behind the plate Saturday in McCann's place.

McCann went 1-for-1 with a walk and a solo home run in Thursday's 3-1 loss to the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

The Astros' vaunted attack was held in check by seven Chicago relievers after starter Carson Fulmer (blister) exited after facing just three batters. McCann's third-inning homer was all they could muster. It was McCann's 15th long ball of the season and just the second since July 25. The 33-year-old catcher has been managed to a certain extent; Thursday's contest was his 91st game played, the fewest games he's played in a season since his rookie year when he played 59 in 2005 for the Braves. That was also the only season in which he had fewer than 15 home runs.

McCann is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

McCann is hitting lefties better than righties this season, but manager A.J. Hinch is employing a lineup heavy on right-handed hitters Friday against Mariners starter James Paxton, so Evan Gattis will get the nod behind the plate.

McCann went 1-for-2 with a solo home run, two walks and two runs scored during Monday's win over Seattle.

EDGE Analysis

McCann is turning in a respectable fantasy campaign with 14 homers, 55 RBI, 40 runs and a .241/.325/.421 slash line. Those aren't standout marks, but they position him as a serviceable catcher in most settings. Being attached to a prolific offense helps his fantasy floor, too.

McCann is out of the lineup Sunday against the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

Since McCann played in the nightcap of Saturday's doubleheader, manager A.J. Hinch won't ask the veteran to turn around and handle catching duties for Sunday's contest, which kicks off at 2:10 p.m. EDT. In McCann's stead, Juan Centeno will step in behind the plate and bat eighth.
