Braves' Freeman injures thumb
Freeman says he jammed his left thumb on the first play of Saturday night's 5-2 win over the 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.
Freeman remained in the game and is wearing a soft splint on his hand on Sunday.
Evan Gattis, who had been out since June 18 with a right oblique strain, was activated from the 15-day disabled list and is starting at first base. A corresponding move has not been announced.
