Scouting Report

2020

McCann spent his first two years at Georgia Tech playing first base because 2018 first-round pick Joey Bart was ahead of him. He took over behind the plate as a junior for the Yellow Jackets and he raised his profile considerably by mashing 23 homers in 2019, landing him in the fourth round of last June’s Draft. He did bring his power to the pro game during his debut, hitting nine homers in his first summer though he struggled to make contact consistently.

The left-handed hitter has legit power to all fields, reminding some of the Orioles’ Chris Davis power-wise. He can lift it out to the opposite field and has a little hook to the pull side and like Davis, his power will come with considerable swing and miss (He struck out in nearly 35 percent of his plate appearances in 2019). He may never hit for a high average, but he does mitigate the strikeouts a bit by working counts and drawing walks.

McCann caught and played first base during his pro debut, partically because he was nursing a sore shoulder. He showed off a much better arm during instructs, but while his hands work, his blocking and overall receiving are works in progress. If it all clicks, he could fit the profile of a lefty power-hitting backstop, but he also might have enough pop to be a first baseman if the catching end of things doesn’t come together.
