Quick Hit: The Return of Brian McCann

Brian McCann has been on the seven day concussion disabled list and is eligible to return today. Manager Joe Girardi has already said that the team will activate McCann today just in time for the second game with the Tampa Bay Rays. While McCann has struggled this season his presence alone changes the whole dynamic of the Yankees lineup and should be welcomed back with open arms.

Austin Romine was called up to replace McCann and after not getting into a single game will head back down to Scranton to be the everyday catcher there. Romine will get the bulk of the starts with the RailRiders since John Ryan Murphy was added to the disabled list himself last week leaving the Yankees uncomfortably thin at the catcher position.

I may be in the minority, well there is no “may” about it, but I think McCann leads the charge that I called for yesterday here on the blog as the Yankees begin a run. It may be just enough of a run to break all our hearts but this team is too good and too talented to stay this bad all season long. Call it a hunch.
