Braves | Brian McCann has sore wrist

Atlanta Braves C Brian McCann (shoulder, wrist) will have his preparation for a rehab assignment delayed a day or two due to a sore right wrist, which is unrelated to his surgery last year. McCann has been hitting but not running or catching in extended spring games. No structural problems were detected after he was examined by a specialist. If McCann doesn't have any more setbacks, he could start playing in extended spring training by the end of the week. There is no timetable for when he will rejoin the major league team.

Fantasy Tip: This new injury shouldn't affect McCann's timetable at all. The injury is likely the result of increased activity recently. Expect him to return to Atlanta in early to mid-May, but Fredi Gonzalez will rest him more than usual in the early going, so be prepared.
