ATLANTA (AP) - Brian McCann's latest experiment with new contact
lenses has ended, and the Atlanta Braves' All-Star catcher plans to
try to resume his season while wearing glasses.
McCann, who said he has never worn glasses while playing, has
had difficulty with blurred vision this season. He was placed on
the disabled list on April 25, retroactive to April 23, and tried
new contact lenses on a minor league rehabilitation assignment with
Class A Myrtle Beach.
The new lenses provided only a temporary fix before "it would
go right back to being dry again," McCann said Friday while
wearing new glasses. He said surgery is the next option.
McCann is hitting .195 with two home runs and seven RBI.
