Braves’ Ryan Doumit and Freddie Freeman left Sunday’s game


The Atlanta Braves took on the New York Yankees today in Grapefruit League action, only to lose a couple key players to hand related injuries.

Last year All-Star first baseman Freddie Freeman was unable to participate in the Summer Classic because of a sore thumb. Today against the Yankees, Freeman had to leave the game after suffering a left thumb contusion according to David O’Brien on Twitter.

Freeman has a batting line of .353/.436/.500 with one home run and five RBI’s off 12 hits. No word on if he’ll sit out a couple games to allow himself to tend to the contusion, but he should have no problem taking the first on Opening Day.

Catcher Ryan Doumit will undergo X-Rays after he was diagnosed with a right middle finger contusion after fighting off a pitch that went foul. Doumit has a batting line of .226/.294/.323 with two RBI’s off seven hits so far this spring.

More information about these two injured Atlanta Braves should be posted within the next day or two.
