Analysis: The contract is expected to include a vesting option worth $15 million. The deal's completion is pending a physical. In an already brisk offseason throughout the majors, the McCann move would be the first major addition for the Yankees since they missed the playoffs for only the second time in 19 years. They finished fourth in the AL East this year.

Analysis: The Braves have 2012 rookie Evan Gattis set to take over at catcher next season. The team is not expected to compete aggressively in the free-agent bidding for McCann, a seven-time All-Star. By making the qualifying offer, the Braves would receive a compensatory draft pick at the end of the first round if McCann signs with another team.
