Taken cross Brian McKenna left on Saturday after suffering from the right tussue of the popliteal tendon, which almost certainly leads to the transition to the wounded list. McCann injured, slipping to third place during the fourth break 4: 2 from Atlantis to Marlins, and left the field under the supervision of the team's coaches.
If this is not enough to hit the Corps, Tyler Flowers replaced McCann's plate and then hit his right hand during the half-time on the side of Miami Tayron Guerrero ] The flowers pulled him by the end of the evening, and X-rays of the wounded arm did not reveal any breakthroughs, reported Mark Bowman and other reporters after the game. Although the placement of IL does not seem likely at this point, Flowers has come to the conclusion that he may need a day or two to recover, leaving Atlanta with a fairly short headquarters in place.
McCann signed a one year contract for $ 2 million. Return to Atlanta in this off season, united with Flowers as a replacement for the platoon for Kurt Suzuki . McCann was sharp to return to his home state and hoped to rebound with the lackluster 2018 season that saw him hit just .212 / .0101 / .339 over the PA 216 for the Astros. His knee injuries tormented McCann for two years in X & N, and he missed two months of the past season after surgery.
Alex Jackson will be in Atlanta before Sunday's game to take McCann for 25 people on the Registry, manager Brian Snitter told reporters ( including Bowman ). Assuming Flowers still hurts, Jackson has time to make his debut in the top league, close to ninety years after being selected as the sixth seamen in the 2014 project. into place by his selection project. Both MLB.com and Baseball America ranked Jackson in the top 30 baseball prospects until the 2015 season, although its stock began to fall after a couple of forgotten seasons in the Seattle Farm system. Even with this struggle in mind, it was still rather weird when Jackson was unceremoniously considering Braves as part of the four players in trade in November 2016, although Jackson has not done much since joining the Atlanta organization to restore his past blue chip status  Braves turned Jackson back for the plate until the 2017 season, but it opened the door for his first taste of the big league. MLB.com refers to Jackson as the 28th best prospect in the Atlanta system, describing its likely future at the exhibition as "a reserve for energy-efficient backup with decent skills," says Jackson. adapted to its old position, although pitching remains a problem. For only 23 years, Jackson has fallen to .234 / .317 / .410 for 1,580 kidnapped minors.
If Flowers can not play for a short time, but also do not hurt to require IL Placement, it leaves Atlanta in a bit of a catching crisis. Raphael Lopez is available at Triple-A, although Braus will have to take another step to add Lopez to the list of 40 people. Charlie Coulberson is an Atlanta accidental trapper and can support Jackson for a maximum of a few days, although Calberson did not think he was playing when he was a decade old.
