Brian McCann: Out 4-6 Months After Shoulder Surgery

Rotowire.com
Update: McCann will have shoulder surgery that will likely require a recovery of four-to-six months. He'll have surgery on the posterior portion of the right shoulder, a procedure that should prevent the subluxations (partial dislocations) that McCann suffered in 2012, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Recommendation: The Braves have a $12 million option on McCann's contract for 2013 but haven't yet announced whether they'll enact that option. Before the surgery enacting that option was an easy decision, but now the Braves may want to re-work his contract since he could miss the start of the 2013 season.
