SAN DIEGO (AP) -Atlanta Braves catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia left Friday night's game against the Padres after he was hit on the left shoulder by a foul ball by pinch-hitter Hiram Bocachica in the seventh inning.
He was replaced by All-Star Brian McCann, who was scratched Thursday night in Los Angeles due to a sprained right knee. Manager Bobby Cox said before Friday night's game that McCann was available.
McCann underwent an MRI exam that showed no structural damage.
