Drafted in the 2nd round (64th overall) by the Atlanta Braves in 2002 (signed for $750,000)
The son of former Marshall head coach Howard McCann and the brother of Gulf Coast (Fla.) CC third-base prospect Brad McCann, Brian is one of the top catchers in a draft that's quite thin at that position. Given his bloodlines, McCann has an advanced understanding of how to play the game. He's a good receiver with a strong, accurate arm, though he needs to work on his footwork and agility behind the plate. He has a quick bat and plenty of power potential, but gets tied up by breaking balls and hasn't fared as well against better pitching. He doesn't run well and will need to keep his lower half from getting too thick, but all in all shows considerable promise.
