James McCann (lower back spasms)

Speaking before the game on Aug. 28, McCann said his rehab is “right on track” but there’s no definitive date marked for his return.

“We have targets but there are certain things I have to accomplish,” he said. “The way I view it, as soon as I’m able to get out here and help, that’s what I’m gonna do.”

The catcher added that on Aug. 27 he hit in a field setting for the second time and caught a second bullpen on Aug. 28.
