McCann and Chipper will remain where they are for now.
The Braves will enter Spring Training with a 1B platoon of newly acquired Craig Wilson from Pittsburgh and lefty Scott Thorman, who batted .298 with 15 home runs and 48 RBI in 309 plate appearances at Triple-A Richmond last year. Thorman didn't fare as well in his callup with Atlanta, hitting .234 with five home runs and a 701 OPS in 128 at-bats.
