Braves' Brian McCann: Announces retirement after loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCann announced after Wednesday's NLDS Game 5 loss to the Cardinals that he will retire from baseball, Kevin McAlpin of 680 The Fan Atlanta reports.

McCann started all five games against the Cardinals but went 3-for-16 with a double and a walk. He said he made the decision to retire in September. McCann finishes his 15-year career with a .262/.337/.452 slash line, 282 home runs, 1,018 RBI and seven All-Star appearances. The 35-year-old spent 10 seasons with the Braves, three with the Yankees and two with the Astros.

McCann went 1-for-3 with a walk and a two-run homer in a 6-0 win over the Giants on Friday.

The homer was his second in nine September starts and 12th of the season. McCann's return to Atlanta has generally been a success when he's been able to stay healthy, and he sports a .252/.322/.419 slash line over 82 games this year.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Braves haven't had a catcher start two straight games since the start of September, and that trend continues after McCann went 1-for-4 with a double Thursday. The veteran backstop is 3-for-19 with one home run and three RBI since being activated off the injured list Sept. 1. Tyler Flowers will start behind the plate Friday.

Braves' Brian McCann: Gets Sunday off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCann is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Nationals.

McCann typically starts against right-handed pitchers like the Nationals' Max Scherzer, but he'll be on the bench for the series finale in what likely just amounts to rest due to Atlanta and Washington playing a day game after a night game. No. 2 catcher Tyler Flowers checks in behind the dish and will work in a battery with Mike Soroka.

Braves' Brian McCann: Idle Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCann is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Blue Jays.

McCann returned from a brief stint on the injured list to start at catcher in Sunday's 5-3 win over the White Sox, going hitless in three at-bats. He'll cede duties behind the plate to Francisco Cervelli on Monday but should see the majority of the Braves' catching work in September.

Braves' Brian McCann: Returns from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCann (knee) was activated off the 10-day injured list Sunday.

McCann suffered the left knee sprain Aug. 20 but is able to rejoin the Braves after a quick trip to the IL. The 35-year-old struggled in August prior to the injury with a .535 OPS and zero extra-base hits in 12 games. He'll re-enter the lineup right away, stepping in behind the plate and batting fifth in the Braves' series finale with the White Sox.

August 30, 2019 05:00 PM
Braves' Brian McCann: Set to return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCann (knee) is expected to be activated off the 10-day injured list Sunday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

McCann is eligible to be activated Saturday, but it makes sense for the Braves to wait until roster expand Sunday to avoid an unnecessary roster move. The 35-year-old will rejoin the big-league club without making a minor-league rehab stint.

Braves' Brian McCann: Placed on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCann was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with a left knee sprain.

The hope is that he will miss just a couple of weeks, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports. He was removed from Tuesday's game with a sore knee, but it was apparently a more serious injury. Tyler Flowers will take over as the primary catcher while Alex Jackson was recalled from Triple-A to serve as the backup.

Braves' Brian McCann: Bound for IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Braves are expected to place McCann (knee) on the 10-day injured list ahead of Wednesday's game against the Marlins, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

Atlanta is still awaiting test results on McCann after he exited Tuesday's 5-1 win with what was labeled as a sore left knee, but the big club is seemingly already preparing to be without their top backstop's services for at least the next week and a half. According to Mark Bowman of MLB.com, Triple-A Gwinnett catcher Alex Jackson was removed from his International League game Tuesday with an injury of his own, but he received a clean bill of health and is expected to receive a promotion when McCann officially lands on IL. Jackson will likely serve as the understudy to Tyler Flowers, who should take over as the club's primary catcher.

Braves' Brian McCann: Managing sore knee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCann was removed from Tuesday's game against the Marlins as a precaution due to left knee soreness.

McCann went 0-for-1 before being replaced by Tyler Flowers for the start of the fourth inning. The fact the Braves labeled his exit as precautionary is good news, but McCann may still be out of the lineup Wednesday to rest the knee.

August 17, 2019 03:32 PM
Braves' Brian McCann: Sitting out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCann is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Dodgers.

Nothing to see here; this is the norm with Atlanta's catching platoon. Tyler Flowers steps in behind the plate to face lefty Hyun-Jin Ryu, after McCann caught and hit fifth against opposing right-handed starters Thursday and Friday.
