Before trainers could even reach the field, Freeman began slowly walking toward the Atlanta dugout, then he dropped his bat, removed his helmet and went down the tunnel.
Test results on the wrist came back negative, the team announced Thursday.
Freeman missed roughly a month and a half last season after being hit by a pitch near the same spot and suffering a fracture.
He was on track for his best season and a possible MVP run last year before he missed seven weeks with a fractured left wrist. He hit .307 with 28 homers in 117 games -- his second season playing fewer than 120 games over the previous three years -- and his time on the disabled list was partially responsible for the Braves' 90-loss season.
