Braves | Brian McCann won't play in rehab games until mid-April

Atlanta Braves general manager Frank Wren said C Brian McCann (shoulder) will not be cleared to begin his rehab assignment until April 16. Wren said McCann is doing fine in his rehab but it is too early to tell when he can return. McCann has been taking batting practice for the last few weeks but is in the early stages of his throwing program.

Fantasy Tip: McCann likely will miss a majority of April but could be back near the end of April or beginning of May depending on his rehab. Owners can look to take him and stash him on their bench or disabled list for the first month of the season.
