    • Manager A.J. Hinch said McCann (knee) is "almost a certainty" to return from the disabled list Thursday, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports. McCann has made solid progress on the disabled list, and barring any setbacks, it appears he'll be back with the Astros when first eligible. When he does return, he should immediately return to his role as the Astros' starting catcher, though with Evan Gattis (concussion) also nearing a return, he'll soon settle back into a timeshare behind the plate.

    • Astros' Brian McCann: Could return on schedule
      By RotoWire Staff

      McCann (knee) is expected to return to the Astros' lineup next week, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports. Manager A.J. Hinch is confident the inflammation in McCann's knee will subside with the treatment he's undergone and expects McCann to increase his baseball activities over the weekend. He's not expected to require a minor-league rehabilitation assignment. The catcher can be activated as early as next Thursday, and it looks like he won't have to wait much longer to be back.

    • Astros' Brian McCann: Receives cortisone shot
      By RotoWire Staff

      McCann received a cortisone shot Tuesday to address inflammation and tendinitis in his right knee, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports. The Astros are hopeful the injection will reduce the swelling above McCann's knee within a few days, at which point the team will determine the next step in the catcher's recovery process. At this point, McCann doesn't look to be at risk of a lengthy stay on the 10-day disabled list, but a more definitive timetable for his return won't be established until he's cleared to resume baseball activities.

    • Astros' Brian McCann: Lands on DL
      By RotoWire Staff

      McCann was placed on the 10-day disabled list with right knee soreness, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports. It's unclear when the issue cropped up on the veteran backstop, but it's apparently serious enough to warrant a trip to the disabled list. He remains without a timetable for his return at this point, though the earliest date he could rejoin the Astros would be Aug. 24. With Evan Gattis (concussion) also on the shelf, Juan Centeno will take over primary catching duties, with Max Stassi's contract being selected from Triple-A Fresno to work as his backup.

    • Astros' Brian McCann: Rides pine Saturday
      By RotoWire Staff

      McCann is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Rangers. It's a bit odd to see McCann sit against a right-hander when he just had a day off Thursday, but there has been no indication of an injury. Manager A.J. Hinch is seemingly just rewarding Juan Centeno for his recent hot stretch at the plate (4-for-9 in his last two starts).
