Freddie Freeman exits game with right oblique injury


UPDATE: Freeman left tonight’s game with a right oblique injury. He’s being called day-to-day, but these type of injuries are notoriously tricky.

8:36 p.m. ET: Troubling development here for the Braves, as Kevin McAlpin of the Braves Radio Network notes that Freddie Freeman left tonight’s game against the Giants in the fifth inning with an apparent injury.

No word on the reason for his exit, but Freeman recently missed five weeks with a right wrist contusion and just returned on July 25. It’s fair to wonder if he aggravated the injury.

Including tonight, Freeman is batting just .184 (7-for-38) with two home runs and a double since coming off the disabled list.
