Brian McCann is favorite among Braves fans, and has been since he came to town in 2005. He is from Athens, GA so he gets bonus points in my book.

In that time, he hit .286 with 136 home runs and 537 RBI. He has 878 hits, 200 doubles and scored 377 runs.

He’s also been named to six All-Star Games and won five Silver Sluggers.

Behind the dish, he’s thrown out 156 of 519 runners, which is a 30 percent caught-stealing rate.

Things got interesting for McCann when he became a free agent after the 2013 season. On November 23, 2013, McCann agreed to a five-year, $85 million contract with the New York Yankees, with a vesting option for a sixth year.

He is now with the Houston Astros. On April 14, 2017, McCann became the 14th catcher to record over 10,000 putouts at the position.
