No, his offensive comeback seems to have been driven by perhaps two simple factors; walks and power.
2014 was a miserable year in those departments for Mc Cann, as he posted a career low in walk rate, and his second lowest ever isolated slugging figure.
Viewers of Celebs Go Dating have slammed Ferne Mc Cann for letting a singleton pay nearly £200 to wine and dine the ex-TOWIE star when she dismissed him as being ‘too vanilla’ for her to date again.
Ciran Pearce took the 26-year-old I’m A Celeb runner-up for a fancy dinner during which Ferne ordered lots of shots and mocked the poor lad for not liking goats cheese.
They’ve actually gone five straight games without a homer at that ballpark dating back to June, so yeah.
Some of the reasons for the recent power outage are obvious.
Castro will sock a dinger every now and then, otherwise they’re stuck hoping Ellsbury or Brett Gardner or Didi Gregorius hook one into the short porch every once in the while.
A drastic increase in ground ball rate, say to 48% or so, would be a big red flag. The number that most caught my eye there is the 7.3 HR/FB% in the second half. Mc Cann has a 13.4 HR/FB% in his three full seasons with the Yankees. I don’t want to call it bad luck, but this sure seems like one of those things that won’t last.After struggling to produce in his debut season with the Yankees, Mc Cann finally acquitted himself well with Yankee fans by raking to the tune of a .259/.331/.471 slash line and a 117 w RC in the first half. According to Fan Graphs, Mc Cann's soft-hit percentage in 2015 was exactly the same in 2014, at 15.2%, while his hard-hit percentage increased only slightly, from 31.0% to 31.5%.While Mc Cann slumped in the second half (along with seemingly every other Yankee), he won the Silver Slugger award for catchers while posting a 105 w RC on the season, up 12 points from the year before. His line drive rate actually fell, from 22.2% to 16.7%.I’ve got to find a routine to work for me,” said Mc Cann last month.A quick glance at Mc Cann’s first and second half splits don’t reveal too much. 87.8 mph) have remained in the same ballpark from the first half to the second, so he’s still making similar contact. That ball leaves the yard in Yankee Stadium or on a warm day at Kauffman Stadium.
Brian Mc Cann, the team’s other veteran power source, has 17 dingers of his own, though last night’s blast was only his third of the second half. Mc Cann has only two doubles in the second half as well, which is why he’s .294 since the All-Star break. Mc Cann is not old like A-Rod and as far as we know he’s not beat up physically like Teixeira, who has been nursing neck and knee issues pretty much all season.
