Quick Note: Dealing with Brian McCann

PBR - Brian McCann enters Monday's contest with a  .385 average and 16 RBIs against the Phillies this season. Six of his 18 home runs on the season have come against Philadelphia.

The graph to the right demonstrates McCann's success at hitting balls in the strike zone via batting average. The darker the color the more dangerous he is - so you can easily see the Phillies need to keep the ball low and inside to succeed in getting him out.

The good news for the Phillies is that McCann has struggled as of late, hitting .200 over the past two weeks with two home runs and five RBIs.

McCann is a career 1-for-6 against Monday's starter Vance Worley.
