Brian McCann (concussion) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Sunday.

He was originally slated to return on Saturday, but the Yankees decided to hold off one more day. "We want him to go through some more workouts," manager Joe Girardi said. "Watching him (Friday), it was the first time that he really had done a bunch of work, and we felt that we had to get a lot of blood flow going and make sure that he’s not lethargic. I know he went to the Stadium and did a little bit, but he kind of sat around to make sure that he was healthy. So (Sunday) is a possibility. We want him to go through a bunch of work (Saturday), and then we’ll go from there."

Yankees placed C Brian McCann on the 7-day concussion disabled list.

McCann was pulled from Friday's game after experiencing concussion symptoms and visited a neurologist on Saturday to determine the extent of his injury. The fact that he was placed on the concussion disabled list, rather than the regular one, bodes well for his chances of returning quickly. Austin Romine was recalled from Triple-A in a corresponding move.

Brian McCann was forced to leave Friday's game against the Indians with a mild concussion.

It's unclear at the moment if he'll need a trip to the disabled list or not, but he should surely be expected to take the next couple of days off. He was 1-for-2 with a run scored before leaving the game.

Brian McCann was scratched from the Yankees starting lineup on Saturday due to a sore left foot.

Jul 5 - 1:17 PM

Brian McCann will sit out Friday's game after tweaking his left foot during Thursday's win over the Twins.

McCann felt pain in the foot while pushing out of the box on a fifth-inning single. He was able to stay in the game after being checked on by the trainer, but with three day games in a row coming up, the Yankees didn't want to push it. "Pushing off in the box, it was my first step, it grabbed, it pinched," said McCann. "It hurt, so we just wanted to make sure nothing was seriously wrong."
Jul 4 - 9:33 AM
