Yankees-Braves Preview

(AP) -- The New York Yankees hope Brian McCann's return to Atlanta can help ignite a slumping offense.

The Georgia native spent his first nine years with the Braves before signing as a free agent with the Yankees after the 2013 season, and his first matchup with his former team comes Friday night in the opener of a three-game series.

"I'm just excited. I was hoping to be able to go back there and play and (am) lucky enough that the schedule matched up and we're able to go back," McCann told MLB's official website. "When the schedule came out and I saw it, I was really excited for that. I wanted to go back and play before they knocked down Turner Field."
