Braves vs. Blue Jays Lineups: Freddie Freeman Out Again With Hand Injury

The Atlanta Braves will welcome in the Toronto Blue Jays to town this weekend for what should be a great few days of baseball at Turner Field. The club has won four games in a row and six of their last seven, and they have done so with strong pitching performances and some clutch homers down the stretch.

Freddie Freeman was injured in the series with the Marlins this week and missed Thursday's game with a hand and finger contusion. He is out again for Friday night against the Jays. Eric Hinske will take his place in the batting order. Here is the rest of the lineup for tonight.

Michael Bourn CF
Martin Prado 3B
Brian McCann C
Dan Uggla 2B
Jason Heyward RF
Eric Hinske 1B
Andrelton Simmons SS
Brandon Beachy P
Jose Constanza LF

The Jays lineup is yet to be released.

First pitch from Atlanta is scheduled for 7:35 p.m., although it may be a bit later than that due to Smoltz's retirement ceremony.
