Chicago White Sox catcher James McCann (rest) is out of the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Minnesota Twins. This is a routine day off for McCann, so he should be back in the lineup next game. Welington Castillo will draw the start behind the plate and bat eighth versus righty Jake Odorizzi. Castillo is not a reliable fantasy option, especially for this contest.
Chicago White Sox catcher James McCann hit a go-ahead grand slam in the eighth inning during Wednesday's 13-9 win over the Houston Astros. McCann tied his career high in home runs with the blast, giving him 13 on the season. In his first season with the White Sox, McCann has enjoyed a breakout year. Among all catchers with at least 30 games played, McCann ranks first in average (.288) and is tied for third in hits with 95. He is locked in as the starting catcher and also hits in the cleanup spot with the White Sox, making him worth the addition in two-catcher leagues.
Chicago White Sox catcher James McCann is out of the lineup on Tuesday afternoon against the Tigers. McCann has been one of the better offensive catchers in the league this year, hitting .281 with 12 home runs in 82 games. Welington Castillo will start behind the plate for Chicago, and with a .176 average and .575 OPS this year he is unlikely to make any impact in fantasy today.
