As expected, the Braves activated Brian McCann from the disabled list Sunday morning. At the same time, they announced Tommy Hanson has been placed on the 15-day disabled list. The Braves have not announced who will start Tuesday vs. the Giants in place of Hanson, who is experiencing right shoulder discomfort for the second time this season. An MRI exam performed last week indicated that he is once again dealing with tendinitis -- the same problem he was diagnosed with when he was placed on the disabled list in June.
