BALTIMORE -- The Yankees believe they will be able to activate catcher Brian McCann from the seven-day concussion disabled list when he is eligible on Saturday, manager Joe Girardi said.

McCann sustained what the team called a mild concussion when he was hit by a foul tip in an Aug. 6 game against the Indians, and was placed on the disabled list the next day. McCann will join the team for their series against the Rays at Tropicana Field.

"He'll be there Friday," Girardi said. "He'll go through BP, and so far I think he feels good. He'll be back when we can take him back."

Girardi said that McCann resumed baseball activities on Tuesday and hit again on Wednesday in New York, and he has already passed the Major League Baseball-mandated ImPACT test to play in games.
