Miguel Cabrera aggravated an ankle injury last night

The Tigers have been getting uneven offensive performances this year. So this can’t be good news:

He’ll play through it, but he’s DHing today. Last year Cabrera got absolutely sapped after suffering injuries late in the season. This is a totally different and apparently less minor injury, but it can’t make Tigers fans feel good.

Freddie Freeman’s X-rays come back negative

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.
