Braves | Brian McCann close to rehab assignment

Atlanta Braves C Brian McCann (shoulder) will catch a couple more days at extended spring training before he goes on a rehab assignment and starts his 20-day clock.

Fantasy Tip: Those who purchased McCann for cheap in their drafts are happy about this news, but the Bravos will probably take their time and let McCann take close to the full amount of time on his rehab assignment because of Evan Gattis' hot hitting to start the year. When McCann is ready, they may have a tough decision on their hands. Atlanta has indicated that they may keep three catchers on roster. Either way, Gattis' playing time figures to drop in order to mix McCann in.
