Atlanta Braves catcher Brian McCann was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday due to a sprained left knee.

McCann departed Tuesday's game against the Miami Marlins due to discomfort in the knee.

The 35-year-old McCann is batting .264 with 10 homers and 39 RBIs in 73 games.

Atlanta recalled catcher Alex Jackson from Triple-A Gwinnett to fill the roster vacancy.

Jackson was 0-for-10 in three games for the Braves earlier this season, and was batting .224 with 25 homers and 57 RBIs in 81 games for Gwinnett.
