Braves awaits Freeman's test tests; pitch struck his wrist

Guy wants to hit a home run in a five-run game, pimp it, throw the bat around - I mean, I don't know.

Freeman was hurt when hit by a pitch from Toronto's Aaron Loup during the fifth inning of an 8-4 victory over the Blue Jays on Wednesday night.

For now, Pillar will have to await the decision of the Major League Baseball, as they are reportedly looking into the incident, which could lead to a short suspension for the Blue Jays' best player in 2017. The Braves said those tests showed the fracture.

Commissioner Rob Manfred says Major League Baseball is investigating. "This is not who I am and will use this as an opportunity to better myself".

If one were making a list of players the Braves just can't lose to an injury this season, Freddie Freeman would be listed first.

"I regret saying it", Pillar told reporters at SunTrust Park a few hours before the finale of a four-game series against the Braves.

Despite his later more thorough apology, some fans say they won't be satisfied until Pillar and the team take some type of action to reduce discrimination in the sport. I'm just exhausted of it.

Last off-season, Bautista re-signed with the Blue Jays after apparently finding little interest in the free-agent market. These players need to remember that they are role models, and frankly, it's not okay to model that kind of behaviour at any time, heat of the moment or not.

Teheran won his first start at the Braves' new suburban ballpark, beating the New York Mets as part of an impressive three-game stretch to start the season. In 2012, former Toronto shortstop Yunel Escobar received a three-game suspension from the team after he played a game with an anti-gay slur written in Spanish on his eye-black stickers.

"We wanted to make sure we were as proactive as possible to get in front of it", Atkins said. In the eighth, the benches emptied again after Toronto's Jose Bautista flipped his bat after homering to left field.

The Braves' Jace Peterson said something to Bautista at first base, and catcher Kurt Suzuki also had words for Bautista when he reached home.

"It makes the games hard to watch", he said, "about the Bautista celebrations after his tours". I didn't see it at the time, but I saw the video. "It's turned into look-at-me stuff".

However, O'Flaherty had some strong words for Bautista after the game. If Pillar did know that he had been caught using a slur, and he thought the proper response was to just apologize for getting mad in the heat of the moment, then he has missed the point entirely.
