Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman, who left Wednesday’s game after being hit in the finger while trying to break up a double play at second base, underwent X-Rays earlier today, and good news for the Braves, they came back negative.

Freeman, who missed four games in late May after complaining of blurred vision, was starting to feel better at the plate after wearing new sports glasses. He was worried his finger may be broken.
On the season, Freeman has a slash line of .253/.302/.448 with eight home runs. He is expected to sit for a few games, to let the swelling come down, and will be re-evaluated on the weekend. The team is still hoping a trip to the disabled list can be avoided.
Eric Hinske, .230/.301/.297, may see some time at first base in his absence.
