The Twins are using Mauer as a DH occasionally to save his knees. McCann does not have that opportunity.
Mauer will have more extra-base hits as he matures. He is only 23 now and his body is still that of a "kid". As he gets older, he will be stronger and hit for more power.
A guy that I think is ready for a "break-out" season is Chris Duffy of the Pirates. He could steal 60+ bases if he learns to take walks occasionally.
