Atlanta Braves catcher Brian McCann has been rehabbing since
undergoing shoulder surgery. This recovery process was halted earlier in the
week when McCann had to be examined because of wrist tenderness, according to
Ray Glier of MLB.com.
McCann was rehabbing in Orlando, but he returned to Atlanta
to have his wrist examined recently after he experienced discomfort. The new
injury is unrelated to the backstop’s ailing shoulder, and the Braves are not
yet sure what it means for McCann’s projected return date.
Previously, the Braves had been tentatively targeting a May
1 return for McCann. He was approaching the point of resuming catching and
throwing, but with his wrist injury it’s not clear when he’ll get back behind
After being one of the best young catchers in the majors
over the first several seasons of his career, McCann experienced a significant drop
off in production last year. He’s hoping to return sooner than later and put
the 2012 campaign behind him.
