Brian McCann set to return Wednesday

Braves catcher Brian McCann is expected to be reactivated Wednesday, his first day eligible to return from the 10-day injured list.

McCann has been sidelined with a right-hamstring strain. He hasn’t had any setbacks and won’t require a rehab stint. Fellow backstop Tyler Flowers and rookie Alex Jackson have handled catching duties in his absence. McCann and Flowers will split time throughout the season.

The Braves likely will plug McCann into Wednesday’s lineup. He’s hit .286/.421/.286 in five games.

“He feels really good,” manager Brian Snitker said. “He came in and worked out yesterday. Did all the drills, hitting. He says he feels really good. The plan is to bring him off tomorrow.”
