New York Yankees

IMG_3537[1]

The catchers position is probably the most important position on the baseball diamond. The biggest signing of the 2013 Major League baseball off-season was the New York Yankees signing catcher Brian McCann away from the Atlanta Braves. McCann is an upgrade at the position for the Yankees. The Yankees will be getting a 7 time all star who averages 27 home runs and has a lifetime batting average of .277. This is definitely an upgrade compared to last year’s catchers Brian Stewart who’s batting average was a whopping .211 and had 4 home runs and 25 runs batted in. This transaction of course leaves the Braves with a back up currently as their catcher.
