2013 MLB Odds Atlanta Braves – Will McCann’s be healthy for opening day

0 Comments

In the upcoming Months will go a long way toward determining Brian McCann’s future. The Atlanta Braves catcher is doing we’ll once shoulder surgery in Oct, however he is still not near one hundred percent, and is extremely unlikely to be able to blow over the club’s 1st regular season game.

MLB Betting Odds 2013The fortunes of the re-tooled Braves could depend on the health of the six-time All-Star backstop who saw his batting average plummet 40 points last season. McCann had career-worsts in most offensive categories, hitting .230 with 67 RBI, a .300 OBP and a .399 slugging percentage.

While there is a possibility McCann will miss at least the first few weeks of the regular season, he is entering camp with the hope of being ready on Opening Day, writes MLB.com’s Mark Bowman. Until McCann can go, catching duties will belong to veteran Gerald Laird, who signed as a free agent in November.

There is plenty at stake for McCann, whose $12 million team-option was picked up this offseason, but it’s the final year of his contract — and there are no assurances whatsoever that he’ll be re-signed, says David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal Constitution. At this stage, McCann is the top catcher available for free agent at the end of the 2013 season, a list that includes Jarrod Saltalamacchia. If McCann, who turns 29 this month, is to cash in on free agency, he needs a healthy and productive season.

The MLB Odds makers have listed Atlanta Braves +700 to win National League Pennant and they are also +1400 to win 2013 World series. Bet on 2013 MLB Future Odds right here.
