As expected, catcher Brian McCann was back in the Braves lineup for Friday’s series opener against the Mets, and veteran backup Gerald Laird was penciled in to catch Julio Teheran’s start Sunday.

Manager Fredi Gonzalez wouldn’t divulge catching plans for Saturday, but said rookie slugger Evan Gattis and McCann would fill the catching and designated hitter positions for two interleague games Monday and Tuesday at Toronto.

“One will catch and one will DH (at Toronto),” said Gonzalez, who hadn’t decided or wasn’t ready to say who would fill which role in each of those two games.
