Braves place C McCann on IL with knee sprain
McCann left Tuesday’s 5-1 win over the Miami Marlins in the third inning with the injury.
The 35-year-old is hitting .264 with 10 home runs and 39 RBIs in 74 games this season. He also was on the IL in April due to a right hamstring strain.
The Braves recalled catcher Alex Jackson from Triple-A Gwinnett to fill the open roster spot. Jackson, 23, is hitless in three games and 10 at-bats for Atlanta this year.
