(AP) Brian McCann says joining the New York Yankees is "one of the best days of my life"

McCann was introduced at Yankee Stadium on Thursday, two days after completing an $85 million, five-year contract.

He's part of New York's offseason spending spree that includes outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury, whose $153 million, seven-year deal is pending.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi says "we think we have the next great Yankee catcher here with us."

McCann will wear No. 34. He was No. 16 with the Braves, but that number has been retired by the Yankees in honor of Whitey Ford.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman calls this is "one step of many we need to take this winter."
