Report: Braves 1B Freddie Freeman out at least eight weeks

Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman left Wednesday’s game early when he was struck on the hand with a pitch. On Thursday, Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reported that Freeman “will miss at least eight weeks.”

An errant pitch from Toronto Blue Jays reliever Aaron Loup struck Freeman’s wrist in the fifth inning of Wednesday’s game.

While his team had been disappointing, Freeman was in the midst of a stellar season. He’s slashing a .341/.461/.748 with 14 home runs.
