The Atlanta Braves are among the favorites in the National League this coming season, but they'll apparently have to start the schedule without starting catcher Brian McCann, the backstop told the media Thursday. The early expectation is that McCann is likely to miss just a couple of weeks, but if it drags on into May, how well the club covers for such a loss will become more and more important.
