Brian McCann's future is really up in the air. He's a hometown boy, and the Atlanta Braves would surely love to keep him in Atlanta. However, there are a few issues. He will likely command big bucks in free agency, and the Braves have Evan Gattis and Christian Bethancourt who are ready to take over full-time.
Still, there is no denying the power and defensive ability McCann provides the Braves.
With Jason Heyward on the shelf for the rest of the regular season, McCann is going to have to come up big for the Braves to keep their momentum going. That, however, means his price tag could increase in the offseason.
Will he give the Braves a hometown discount? That will all depend on him.
As for now, a big last month of the season will no doubt increase the amount of money he'll receive in a contract.
