Player Notes
James McCann (ankle) is scheduled to play two more minor league rehab games at Triple-A Toledo before rejoining the Tigers on Tuesday.

Advice: Jarrod Saltalamacchia has been swinging an extremely hot bat in his absence, but McCann is the club's starting catcher and will return to handle the bulk of the work behind the dish in Detroit.

James McCann (ankle) went 0-for-3 with two walks in his rehab debut Tuesday at Triple-A Toledo.

Advice: McCann served as the Mud Hens' designated hitter, but he should be catching in a couple days and he could return to the Tigers' active roster this weekend. The 25-year-old has been out since April 12 with a sprained ankle.

James McCann (ankle) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Toledo on Tuesday.

Advice: McCann is expected to DH on Tuesday but he should be back behind the plate in a few days. The 25-year-old will likely be activated later this week. Jarrod Saltalmacchia has fared reasonably well in his absence, hitting four home runs over his last nine games.

James McCann (ankle) could begin a minor league rehab assignment on Tuesday.

Advice: McCann, who is coming back from a Grade 2 sprain of his right ankle, ran the bases again on Monday. Assuming he feels good on Tuesday, he could serve as a DH for the start of a brief minor league rehab assignment. Jarrod Saltalamacchia will continue to get the bulk of the playing time behind the plate until he's ready.

Sun, Apr 24 Rotoworld
James McCann (ankle) has resumed baseball activities.

Advice: McCann has caught pitches thrown by a pitching machine, thrown long toss from a squatting position and taken soft toss in the batting cage. He's eligible for activation on Tuesday, but the catcher still has some steps to go through before it's known whether returning that day is possible. "I have to get to the point where I can run," he said. "I haven’t run full speed by any means. I am just slowly getting back into baseball activity." Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said that McCann could avoid a rehab assignment if he winds up missing only around 15 days of action.
