McCann will be the everyday catcher for the Mets after putting up his second consecutive successful season for the White Sox. After putting up a .789 OPS in 2019, he jumped up to an .896 mark in 2020, setting a career-high in walk rate. McCann was a part-timer last year, so his rate stats will likely dip as he takes over a heavy workload with the Mets (Wilson Ramos ranked fourth among catchers in plate appearances the last two seasons). But counting stats should be there in spades in a strong Mets lineup. He should be drafted as a starting catcher in 12-team formats.

James McCann finalizing four-year deal with the Mets

The Mets are finalizing a four-year, $40 million contract with free agent catcher James McCann.

Fantasy Impact

The Mets and McCann have been working towards a deal the past few days and ultimately agreed on a four-year contract. He slashed .289/.360/.536 with seven homers, 15 RBI, 20 runs scored and one stolen base over 31 games for the White Sox in 2020. McCann is expected to be the Mets’ primary catcher and should see everyday at-bats next season. The 30-year-old is a borderline C1 in upcoming 2021 fantasy baseball drafts.
