He’s still able to pinch hit without issue.
“If I played any other position, it wouldn’t be a problem,” McCann said. “But to squat and trying to block (pitches), that’s where it gives me trouble.”
McCann is one of the hottest hitters in the Braves lineup. Entering Sunday he was hitting .321 (42-for-131) with 10 home runs and 28 RBIs over his previous 35 games, dating back to June 23.
Sunday morning, he was most proud of his 1-year-old son Colt, whom he carried around on the field during the Braves annual “Family Day” before the game in a red T-shirt that said “CMac.”
