Brian McCann Admits He Has Been Horrendous

Yankees’ catcher Brian McCann hasn’t had the easiest transition to the Bronx in his first year as a Yankee.

After signing a 5-year, $85 million contract with the Yankees this past off-season, and seeing what he had done in Atlanta over the last nine seasons, this was a huge pickup for the team. Needless to say, it hasn’t gone as well as they hoped it would.

Although McCann isn’t the only one who isn’t producing, he still beats himself down and has admitted that he has been horrible. McCann has a current .221 average with nine home runs and 36 RBI so far this season.

With last night’s game being number 81, marking the halfway point of the season, he believes that both him and the team can turn things around. “We’ve just got to keep grinding,” McCann told Brendan Kuty of NJ.com. “I’ve got faith in myself and I think we’ll swing the bats better.”
