Braves | Brian McCann gaining strength

Atlanta Braves C Brian McCann (shoulder) is gaining arm strength and will catch five innings in extended spring training Tuesday, April 23. He's expected to start a rehab assignment later this week.

Fantasy Tip: The Braves are expected to have McCann use up the full time on a minor league rehab assignment to avoid having to make a decision on whether they'll carry three catches when he returns. They also would prefer to make sure McCann is 100 percent healthy. If Evan Gattis is still hot by then, it's hard to imagine they'll send him down.
