Brian McCann missed his third straight game Saturday with a strained right quadriceps.
Braves manager Bobby Cox said the catcher was “80 to 90 percent” and was held out of the lineup again as a precaution.
McCann did agility work in the outfield hours before the start of Saturday’s game.
“There is no sense pushing it,” said McCann, who described himself as day-to-day. “It’s getting better.”
McCann felt a “tweak” running between first and second on a fly out during Wednesday’s game against Florida.
David Ross started his third straight game behind the plate. He went 3-for-4 with two doubles and three RBIs in Friday’s win over the Pirates. Before Saturday, Ross was batting .316 (12-for-38) with 11 RBIs and seven walks in 11 starts as a catcher this season.
