David O’Brien of the Atlanta-Journal Constitution reports that Brian McCann left tonight’s game against the Phillies with a right adductor strain.

While an injury is the last thing the Braves need with the playoffs just days away, McCann has been listed as day-to-day. No word on who will enforce baseball’s unwritten rules during his absence, though.

McCann, 29 , is batting .256/.336/.461 with 20 home runs and 57 RBI over 102 games this season. He will be a free agent this winter.
