Braves Freddie Freeman Avoids Serious Injury After Hit on the Wrist Wednesday
ATLANTA (AP) – Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman is listed as day to day after he avoided serious injury when hit by a pitch on his left wrist.
The Braves say tests showed no structural damage.
The pitch by Phillies left-hander Hoby Milner on Wednesday night hit Freeman near the base of his left hand. Freeman missed seven weeks in 2017 after fracturing his left wrist when hit by a pitch at about the same spot. He was on pace for his best season before the injury.
After he was hit by Milner’s pitch, Freeman winced, stood at the plate for a few seconds and then walked to the dugout to remove himself from the game.
