|Brian McCann's playing time his only hindrance|
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(5/14/13) Brian McCann has yet to start three games in a row since making his season debut May 6, but to me, his productivity tells you everything you need to know about his health. Coming back from offseason shoulder surgery, I thought he might need a few weeks to get back to being a plus offensive catcher, assuming he ever did. But with three home runs in six games, he's already proven those concerns invalid.
Now, he just needs to prove he can handle his usual workload.
If he keeps hitting like that, the Braves will realize his high-contact bat is more valuable than ever in a lineup full of free swingers, and they'll play him. That's how I see it anyway, and my rankings now reflect it. McCann is now ninth among catchers, with room to rise from there.

(5/11/13) Braves catcher Brian McCann homered for the second straight game Friday against the Giants, going 1 for 3 and driving in two runs. His homer was one of just two extra-base hits for the Braves, who were held to three hits.

(5/10/13) Braves catcher Brian McCann found his stroke Thursday, going 3 for 5 in a 6-3 win over the Giants.
McCann hit his first home run of the season, a two-run shot to left center in the second inning, to open the scoring for Atlanta. He finished with three RBI and one run scored while striking out once.
McCann has four hits over his last two games since going 0 for 4 in his first game following his return from shoulder surgery.
|Brian McCann goes 0-fer in debut|
|by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com|
(5/6/13) Braves catcher Brian McCann made his season debut Monday night against the Reds. After missing time due to shoulder surgery, he went 0 for 4 with a walk in the 7-4 win.
McCann is expected to play Tuesday but could receive an off-day Wednesday.
|Brian McCann just couldn't catch a break in 2012. Not only did he miss out on an All-Star nod for the first time in his seven full seasons, but he put up numbers befitting of Rod Barajas. The league-wide infatuation with the infield shift condemned him to a low batting average early, and just when he seemed to be getting on track in July, hitting .309 with nine homers and a 1.104 OPS during a 19-game stretch, he came down with a frayed labrum and cyst in his right shoulder. McCann's attempts to play through the injury only put him in a deeper hole, and by the end of the year, he was pretty much confined to a reserve role behind David Ross. Though he had surgery in the offseason to correct the problem, the damage proved to be worse than expected, meaning his rehabilitation will likely extend into the regular season. With free agency approaching in 2013, McCann will be plenty motivated to return to the field, but if he rushes and ends up playing at less than 100 percent, he'll run into the same problems he had last August and September. At age 29, he still has the potential to perform like an elite Fantasy catcher, but seeing as he's on the winding road of recovery right now, you wouldn't want to invest more than a middle-round pick in him.
