Braves 1B Freddie Freeman day-to-day after taking pitch off left wrist

Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman is day-to-day after being hit in the left wrist by a pitch during Wednesday's game.

Freeman left the 7-3 win over the Philadelphia Phillies when he was struck by a Hoby Milner 90 mph pitch with the Braves holding a 4-2 lead in the bottom of the eighth inning.

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.
