McCann Ccores $27.8 Million Contract Extension

Brian McCann agreed to the terms of a six-year $27.8 million contract late Thursday morning. With this contract, McCann will be playing for the Atlanta Braves through the year 2012 with the option of playing through 2013. B.B. Abbott, McCann's agent, said there were escalators that could not take the value of the contract to $29.8 million. With that, the Braves presented the 23-year-old catcher the most money ever included in a contract extention given to a player with less then two years of service.
