Wed, 03 Apr 2013 16:27:48 -0700
Atlanta Braves C Brian McCann (shoulder) and SS Paul Janish (shoulder) will continue playing in extended spring training Thursday, April 4, and both players are only permitted to hit in games. McCann will hit and catch bullpens while he increases his throwing program, but he won't be cleared for full action until April 16. There is no timetable for his return from the disabled list. Janish will be cleared to play sooner than McCann, and Janish will play shortstop for Triple-A Gwinnett when he returns from the DL.
