4/11:Detroit Tigers catcher James McCann socked his third homer of the young season today, a two-run blast in the fifth inning that ended up being the deciding factor in the game. McCann hasn't been much of a fantasy option in years past, particularly due to his struggles against lefties. But if his power keeps up and he can match his 2014 batting average of .264, McCann would be a waiver wire steal at a thin position.--Tyler Germain - RotoBaller
