Tyler Flowers, who has shared the Braves’ catching duties with McCann this season, likely will get the bulk of the work behind the plate in McCann’s absence. But Jackson “is going to have to carry some of the load,” manager Brian Snitker said.
McCann left Tuesday night's game with knee soreness at the start of the fourth inning.
McCann wasn’t available for interviews Wednesday, but Snitker said he thinks the veteran catcher could be able to return to the active roster when the minimum 10-day stint on the injured list expires.
“We’ll have to take it day-by-day, but it’s kind of encouraging to see him walking around,” Snitker said. “Talking to him, he seems a little more encouraged than what he he thought he might be today, so that’s good.”
