McCann went 4-for-4 with a homer and three RBI against the Red Sox on Wednesday.

The home run lifted his season total to 17, after McCann took rookie Anthony Ranaudo deep in the second inning. The overall numbers remain a disappointment for McCann's first season in pinstripes, but he's delivered a multi-hit effort in three of his last six starts to nudge his line to .244/.295/.405 through 117 games.

The Yankees expect to activate McCann (concussion) from the 7-day DL on Saturday, MLB.com's Bryan Hoch reports.

McCann reported improvement in his recovery earlier in the week and was set to undergo further testing Tuesday. Though he hasn't yet resumed baseball activities, the positive news surrounding his recovery suggests he may have come through Tuesday's test symptom-free. The Yankees should relay further information on McCann's condition as the weekend draws nearer.

McCann (concussion) reported feeling better, according to manager Joe Girardi, and could undergo another concussion test Tuesday, MLB.com reports.

McCann was placed on the 7-day concussion DL Saturday, so he won't be able to return until a week from then at the earliest. If he passes a concussion test symptom free, he could be cleared to resume baseball activities and a return to the team as soon as he's eligible would seem likely.

McCann was placed on the 7-day concussion DL on Saturday, Eric Boland of Newsday reports.

McCann's visit with a neurological specialist Saturday morning confirmed that he had a concussion, requiring him to follow Major League Baseball's protocol on the head injury. The Yankees will monitor McCann's status on a day-to-day basis, with the catcher able to resume working out once he's no longer experiencing concussion symptoms. In the meantime, Francisco Cervelli looks primed to pick up the large share of at-bats behind the plate while McCann is out.
