    Athletics' Kyle McCann: Delivers as pinch hitter Saturday

    McCann entered Saturday's loss to the Royals as a pinch hitter in the ninth inning and singled in his only plate appearance.

    McCann continues to see occasional starts behind the dish, but he'd gone a combined 1-for-10 with six strikeouts in the most recent three prior to Saturday's pinch-hit appearance. The rookie will continue to spell Shea Langeliers on occasion, and despite the recent skid, he still carries a .333 average and .975 OPS over 47 plate appearances.

    Trevino went 1-for-4 with a solo home run against the White Sox in Saturday's 6-1 victory.

    Trevino hit one of four homers for New York in the contest, belting a solo shot to left field in the second inning. The backstop is up to five long balls through 91 plate appearances this season, already surpassing the four homers he hit in 158 plate appearances last year. Trevino and Austin Wells continue to split work behind the plate for the Yankees, but Trevino has been far superior offensively so far this season, slashing .286/.330/.464 to Wells' .197/.308/.303 mark.

    Tigers' Jake Rogers: Not starting Saturday

    Rogers isn't in the Tigers' lineup for Saturday's game against Arizona.
