News: McCann was placed on the 7-day concussion DL on Saturday, Eric Boland of Newsday reports. Impact: McCann's visit with a neurological specialist Saturday morning confirmed that he has a concussion, requiring him to follow MLB's protocol on head injuries. The Yankees will monitor his status on a day-to-day basis, with the catcher able to resume working out once he's no longer experiencing symptoms. In the meantime, Francisco Cervelli looks primed to pick up the large share of at-bats behind the plate while McCann is out.(RotoWire, )

News: McCann (concussion) is out of the lineup Saturday versus the Indians, MLB.com's Bryan Hoch reports. Impact: McCann was set to undergo a concussion test prior to the game, after which the Yankees will decide if he'll require a stint on the DL.
