McCann wound up missing eight days with a concussion that he suffered last Friday night when he took a Mike Aviles foul-tip off his catcher’s mask. The 30-year-old backstop has been a major disappointment in his first season with the Yankees, batting .238/.294/.384 with 13 home runs and 49 RBI in 103 games. He was signed to a five-year, $85 million free agent contract in November 2013 after nine great years with Atlanta.
