Milestone: 1,500 hits, 1,000 RBI, and 300 doubles.
Catcher and veteran Brian McCann is 19 hits away from a career 1,500. He’s had a rough spring training but not to worry says one CTH writer. He may be saving the good stuff for the regular season. Baseball reference has him right around 93 hits this season. With 84 hits last season and three straight 100 + hits seasons before that, 93 seems attainable. He may hit that mark by early September.
McCann is also 50 shy of 1,000 RBI on his career. He batted in 62 runs last season and could easily get to 1,000 this year too as Baseball-Reference has him driving in 64. We will have a clearer picture once we figure out which McCann we are getting this season.
Not to mention, Brian is also 18 doubles shy of 300.
