Freddie Freeman has been out of the Atlanta Braves' line-up since last Tuesday after a throw from Jose Reyes hit his finger as he was sliding into second base. Fortunately, Freeman may be back in the line-up soon after two cortisone shots relieved some of the pain in his finger.
The Braves' medical staff injected his left index finger with cortisone on Saturday night. Freeman hopes to be back in the starting line-up for Tuesday's game against the New York Yankees.
"I'm going to have to play through pain the rest of the year," Freeman said on Monday afternoon. "But we've got to get it to a point where I can play through it."
Freeman sustained the injury on June 7 and was lucky to avoid a fracture in his hand.Tags: Atlanta, Atlanta Braves, Freddie Freeman, MLB
