Freddie Freeman Injury: Braves First Baseman Has Corneal Abrasion

Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman left Monday's game against the Reds after having some blurred vision. Freeman went through a couple of sets of contacts but the situation didn't improve. However, his injury isn't serious and he could be back in the lineup on Tuesday.

The news is good for the Braves who can expect to have their first baseman back sooner rather than later. Freeman is hitting .277 on the season and leads the team with six homers and 28 RBIs. Eric Hinske took over for Freeman in the eighth inning Monday night and would likely get the start at first base on Tuesday if the Braves decide to hold Freeman out.
