Brian McCann left the game in the fifth inning with a strained right intercostal muscle and is listed as day-to-day. You may recall he strained his oblique against the Pirates last July, but it was on the left side. Injuries such as these do not heal overnight, and it’s worth monitoring McCann going forward to see how he responds once he returns.
