Dodgers News: Freddie Freeman Had Initial Concern Over Wrist Injury

Dodgers fans held their collective breath on Sunday afternoon after Freddie Freeman was shown holding and rubbing his right wrist following hitting his MLB-best 25th double of the season. He slid a little hard to beat a throw into second base and began grimacing almost immediately.

After the game, he provided some relief with a positive update.

“I’m ok. I jammed it sliding into second base when I put it down. The pain went away as the game went along, but I was a little worried for a second. All good now. No worries, no concerns. I didn’t get treatment after the game.”

The Dodgers could ill afford to lose Freeman for any stretch of games. He’s been the club’s best hitter all season long and there are no great options behind him to play much first base. If you saw any of Saturday’s blowout loss to the Giants, you’d know that the Jason Heyward experiment at 1B is going about as well as it did for Joc Pederson a few years back.

Freddie is hitting .324 with 39 extra base hits fueling a .958 OPS. He’s the leading vote getter among first basemen for next month’s All Star game to be held in Seattle. The Dodgers are off on Monday before heading down to Anaheim to play the team Freeman grew up watching, the Angels for two games.
