Brian McCann told reporters after last night's game that he needs some time to adjust to the new contact lens that corrected his vision. He doesn't believe he will miss more than a week. David Ross will assume the catching responsibilities in his absence.
"He says he sees perfectly today," Cox said before the game. "It's just about driven him crazy for a couple of weeks now. We're not going to let him go out there unless he's 100 percent."
It shouldn't be hard to underscore just how important good eyesight is in baseball, not only for a hitter, but especially for the everyday catcher. We need McCann. I hope he gets back in there soon.
