John Heyman reported today that the Mets, Yankees, Cardinals, White Sox and Angels are showing interest in free agent catcher James McCann. Obviously an unsurprising report, considering the Mets catching need. The Phillies are believed to be in the mix, if they are out on Realmuto. Which could also be the case for the Mets and other teams.
McCann has been well documented on MetsJunkies as a main guy to be targeted by the Mets. He has always been a good defender, but has improved mightly with the bat over the last two seasons. Behind Realmuto he is the best catcher avaliable on the market. The White Sox do like McCann but there is no way, he would take a back-up role.
