His right knee might look bad, but it was his left knee that got busted~

I guess now the Braves will call up that catcher prospect with the extremely long and silly name

He's at double A and barely hitting .200 so who knows if they'll call up Jarrod Saltamacchia or not.

They just announced "left lateral ankle sprain and is day-to-day"... whatever that means... and as the great Keith Olbermann put it, "we're all day-to-day."

From what I saw and the pain he was in, I just don't see how a guy can catch with a bum wheel, all that crouching... I'd bet 14 day DL.

from rotoworld:
Brian McCann is listed as day-to-day with a left lateral ankle sprain sustained in a collision at home plate during Saturday's game.
Well, we'll see about that. Our guess is that McCann will end up on the DL. However, the early fear was that it may have been a season-ending injury, and that no longer appears likely. If McCann avoids the DL, the Braves may sent down Travis Smith to call up Brayan Pena on Sunday.
If you believe everything you read, better not read.
