Catcher Brian McCann was out of the Braves lineup for the third consecutive game Tuesday as he continued to await the effects of a cortisone shot in his ailing right shoulder. Manager Fredi Gonzalez said he expected McCann to return to the lineup Wednesday against the Rockies.
McCann hit in the indoor cages and played some catch on Tuesday afternoon.
McCann’s cortisone shot Saturday night was his second in less than a month, after getting one on Aug. 7 in Philadelphia. McCann, who was diagnosed with a cyst and a frayed labrum, has hit only .171 (13-for-76) with no extra-base hits and two RBIs since Aug. 1.
“He should be good to go tomorrow,” Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said.
