Braves’ Freeman To Miss All-Star Game

ATLANTA — Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman will not play in the All-Star Game after jamming his left thumb.
Freeman jammed his left thumb on the first play of Saturday night’s 5-2 win over the Cincinnati Reds. Shortstop Andrelton Simmons fielded Chris Heisey’s grounder and threw slightly wide of first base, forcing Freeman to catch the ball in Heisey’s path. Heisey hit Freeman’s glove and was out.
“I guess my thumb was in the wrong place,” Freeman said. “It’s just one of those freak injuries I seem to run into every year.”
Freeman remained in the game. He wore a soft splint on his left hand and is not playing in Sunday’s game.
