Heading into this season, Atlanta Braves catcher Brian McCann had been selected to the All-Star team in each of the six full seasons he spent in the big leagues. During that time, he averaged 22 home runs and 86 RBI while never hitting below .269 in a season.
This year it has all fallen apart for McCann, who is hitting just .231 with 19 homers and 62 RBI. Shoulder and ribcage injuries are likely causes for the major drop in production, as well as a flu that sidelined him for four days in May.
McCann will have a chance to rebound next season and get back to the All-Star Game, but with his recent injury history and drop in production over the last few seasons, there are some questions that will need to be answered regarding the veteran catcher. This article will take a look at his chances of bouncing back in a big way next season.
