UPDATE: Freeman has been diagnosed with a slight corneal abrasion, which apparently isn’t as bad as it sounds because David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports that he could be available as soon as tonight.
Freddie Freeman left last night’s game in the seventh inning because of blurred vision in his right eye, with manager Fredi Gonzalez saying afterward that the Braves first baseman “went through a couple of pairs of contacts and couldn’t get it fixed.”
Gonzalez told Mark Bowman of MLB.com that Freeman had never dealt with the problem before and will be examined further by an eye doctor to determine the cause.
He went 0-for-3 before exiting and was replaced by Eric Hinske.
