    News

    McCann went 2-for-4 with an RBI in Friday's 1-0 win over the Marlins.

    Impact

    After eight scoreless innings and a 148-minute rain delay, McCann finally ended things with a bases-loaded single in the bottom of the ninth. The veteran catcher has been effective in a timeshare with Tyler Flowers, slugging eight homers and 31 RBI with a .796 OPS -- McCann's highest mark since 2013.

    News

    McCann is not starting Wednesday against the Phillies.

    Impact

    Tyler Flowers will start behind the plate in McCann's absence, meaning both catchers will now have started 42 games. There's little separating the pair offensively, with McCann's 103 wRC+ edging out Flowers' 100 wRC+, so expect the timeshare to continue going forward.
