ST. PETERSBURG -- Brian McCann has rejoined the Yankees in Florida after spending the Orioles series in New York, recovering from a mild concussion.

McCann participated in on-field activities on Friday, performing catching drills and taking batting practice. After the club's 5-0 loss to the Rays, McCann said that the Yankees are "shooting for Sunday" to activate him from the seven-day concussion disabled list.

"I'm really happy with the way today went as a whole," McCann said earlier on Friday. "Now it's a matter of seeing how I feel in an hour, seeing how I feel in two hours. I'll know more tonight."

McCann said that he started to feel better after three days of rest. He was hit by a foul tip in an Aug. 8 game against the Indians at Yankee Stadium.

"I never thought that I would ever come out of a game from a foul tip," McCann said. "The way it hit me, it's definitely the hardest I've ever been hit."
