“We said in the beginning we’d listen. We have listened. We said we’d have to be wowed to move Doc. We haven’t been wowed.”
– Blue Jays general manager J.P. Ricciardi, content with Doc staying put. He also added that there is no animosity towards the Phillies for moving on with Cliff Lee.
The Braves got a scare last night after first baseman Freddie Freeman was hit on the left wrist by a Hoby Milner fastball in the bottom of the eighth inning. It was doubly scary given that, less than a year ago, the same wrist was fractured when Aaron Loup plunked him last year, causing Freeman to miss over a month and a half.
Good news, though: the Braves just announced that Freeman’s X-rays are negative and that he’s day-to-day.
On the season, Freeman is batting .288/.468/.492 with two home runs, 12 RBI, and 12 runs scored in 79 plate appearances.
