Profile: McCann turned in a solid 2016 campaign, hitting 20 homers from behind the plate. But he'll be wearing an Astros uniform next year, as Gary Sanchez's meteoric rise to excellence made him expendable for the Yankees. Though he'll be 33 next season, McCann can still get it done. He's reached the 20 homer mark for nine consecutive seasons now, and while he hasn't hit for average in several years, a .230ish average from behind the plate isn't terrible these days. He'll receive the lion's share of playing time in Houston, so expect him to come close to approximating his 2016 numbers. Perhaps he'll hit a handful fewer homers due to his new ballpark, but the Astros' deeply-stacked lineup should give him plenty of RBI opportunities. No need to roster him in standard mixed leagues, but he's a top-10 catcher in AL-only. (Chris Mitchell)

The Quick Opinion: McCann's career is on the downswing, but he still has at least one good year left in the tank. He's still one of baseball's better starting catchers.
