Braves | Brian McCann feeling good in rehab

Atlanta Braves C Brian McCann (shoulder) took batting practice on the field Friday, March 8, for the first time since having offseason shoulder surgery. "I've just got to be smart," said McCann, who also did two sets of 20 throws at 120 feet. "Today was a great day. Throwing was better than it has been, and hitting today is the best I've felt hitting. I'm taking the necessary steps forward." He expects to hit and throw again Saturday, March 9, for the first time he's done activities on back-to-back days. McCann felt sharp pain in his swing last year because of partial dislocations in his shoulder. The team is hoping he can return to the lineup around April 16 at the earliest.
