Agent of Brian McCann says he's interested in signing with New York Yankees

The agent for prized free agent catcher Brian McCann recently suggested that his client is interested in signing with the New York Yankees, this according to the New York Daily News:

McCann’s agent, B.B. Abbott, said Monday that the Bronx is “certainly a place that is on Brian’s radar. How could it not be? You’ve got an historic franchise and a great park, knowledgeable fans and a chance to win, which is what every guy plays the game for.

“From Brian’s standpoint, it would be an attractive place to listen to.”

More than that, it’s a place that could potentially give McCann that rumored $100 million dollar deal that he and his agent have been clamoring for.

Of course, with the Braves offering McCann a qualifying offer, the Yankees would have to give up a draft pick to sign McCann though that’s more of a detriment to lesser name players than one of the most valued assets on the market.

The Yankees could certainly use a more effective backstop and playing in the American League would allow McCann to move to the designated hitter spot towards the back end of his deal, if needed.
