Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman left in the seventh inning of Monday's 3-1 loss against the Cincinnati Reds with blurred vision in his right eye. General manager Frank Wren told Dave O'Brien that the diagnoses was a "very fine" corneal abrasion of his right eye, but that he could be available to play Tuesday.
Manager Fredi Gonzalez said that this is the first time that Freeman had dealt with the issue and that he had tried two different pairs of contacts last night with no results. He was then examined by the team's eye doctor after the game.
“It’s a very fine corneal abrasion,” Wren said. “We’ll check him again this afternoon. The eye heals so fast. He could be available tonight or take another day, but it won’t be much longer than that.”
Freeman went 0-for-3 last night before being replaced by Eric Hinske, who grounded out while pinch-hitting in his only at-bat.Tags: Atlanta, Atlanta Braves, Freddie Freeman, MLB
