Position: C      Born: Feb 20, 1984      Bats: Left      Throws: Right

In November of 2016 the Astros sent a pair of minor league pitchers to the New York Yankees in exchange for Brian McCann. The left-handed hitting catcher arrives in Houston with an impressive pedigree as a power hitter, having blasted 20 or more home runs in each of his last nine seasons. McCann is reunited with Evan Gattis and the two look-alikes will share the catching duties just as they did in Atlanta in 2013.
