From MLB.com beat reporter Mark Bowman:

Brian McCann returned to Turner Field on Tuesday to take batting practice and interact with some of his Braves teammates for the first time since the end of Spring Training. If the remainder of his rehab assignment goes well through the end of this week, McCann could be back in Atlanta’s lineup for next week’s series in Cincinnati.

That three-game series against the Reds gets underway next Monday, May 6 at Great American Ball Park.

“I’ll be ready,” McCann told reporters on Tuesday afternoon. “Where I’m at right now, I feel really good.”

Atlanta is expected to keep Evan Gattis around as a bench bat. He could even see action in the outfield.

    Look, I love nbc sports talk, but the reporting can be so incredibly shoddy! You cannot talk about an injury without naming the damn thing! I forgot his injury, and now I have to leave your site to go find this basic information. Please please PLEASE work on this stuff!

    Great player but he gets hurt every year & numerous times a year?!

    I’m going to Monday’s game and look forward to seeing him.

    buffalomafia (great name BTW)–He’s a catcher. Catchers get hurt a lot. That’s why teams try to move the ones who can hit to different positions, sometimes with success (Biggio, Johnny Bench late in his career), sometimes not (Piazza, Todd Hundley).
