Guess if he gets OF elig he might be a semi-useful piece, and McCann's decline the past few years has me a little worried.
Do you mean his decline last year when he was injured?
No, not just that. As a huge Braves fan, I've felt as though he's slowed a bit over the past couple years (yes I know of the injury complications he went through in '12). His at bats have slowly declined over the past 5 seasons (as has his OPS), and it would seem like an even bigger concern now with another solid hitting C option in the mix.
I guess if Gattis was only C eligible it wouldn't be worth the roster spot, but if I can mix him in elsewhere on days when McCann is catching to help fill in for my other guys with days off, I think it's worth it.
