FAYETTEVILLE - Former Arkansas catcher James McCann has signed a professional contract with the Detroit Tigers, as announced on Tuesday morning.

Selected in the second round with the 76th overall pick, McCann was the Tigers' first draft pick in the 2011 Major League Baseball First Year Player Draft and was also the first collegiate catcher taken in the draft. He joins Collin Kuhn, Jarrod McKinney and Kyle Robinson as former Razorback players that were drafted that have signed professional contracts.

A native of Santa Barbara, Calif., McCann put together his best offensive year in 2011, hitting .306 with six homers and 38 RBI. McCann ranked second on the team with 14 doubles, drew a team-high 24 walks and also stole 11 bases. The 2011 SEC Baseball Scholar-Athlete of the Year, McCann had 15 multi-hit games and 11 multi-RBI games last season. Considered one of the best defensive catchers in college baseball, McCann was one of 13 semifinalists for the Johnny Bench Award. McCann finished the year with a .992 fielding percentage, committing just four errors on the season.

In his three years as a Razorback, McCann played in 169 games, including 152 starts, and had a .284 career batting average with 16 homers and 83 RBI. Defensively, McCann compiled a .993 fielding percentage, committing just nine errors.
