After spending the first nine years of his career with the Braves, Brian McCann agreed to terms on a five-year deal with the Yankees on Saturday. Along with seven All-Star Game appearances and five Silver Sluggers, here are a few things fans should expect from the Georgia native:

Home runs. McCann averages 26 over a 162-game average, and will probably take full advantage of Yankee Stadium's short porch in right:


Water. He likes to drink it, especially after hitting homers. Fellow teammates should have some ready for him:

Throwing out runners. McCann isn't tops in the league, but he has been known to throw out superstars like Yasiel Puig:

Passion. The catcher was involved in a few on-field scuffles this past season, and will not back down when he believes he's in the right:

Gomez, McCann

Never. Back. Down.
