Brian McCann May Need Shoulder Surgery In Offseason, Not Happy About Sitting The Bench

Brian McCann has been battling a sore shoulder for weeks now and was held out of the lineup on Saturday for the second straight game. McCann is not happy about sitting, claiming that he is capable and healthy enough to play and do what's necessary to help the Braves win. Manager Fredi Gonzalez disagrees, and he's the one who gets the final say.

Then came this tidbit out of Atlanta. According to a couple of test results, McCann might need offseason shoulder surgery to fix things up a bit.

This will definitely be a few things to watch for not only in this weekend's series with the Dodgers, but also in the coming months if Mac continues to be bothered by his shoulder.
