Atlanta Braves outfielder Marcell Ozuna left Tuesday's game vs. the Boston Red Sox early after injuring his hand while sliding into third base.
Ozuna was trying to get from second to third on a fielder's choice in the top of the third inning. He tried to avoid the tag from Rafael Devers and appeared to jam his hand/thumb on the play. He was 1-for-1 with an RBI double prior to exiting. The Braves should provide an update on his status postgame.
Marcell Ozuna went 3-for-5 with a solo home run, two doubles, three runs scored, and two RBI in Friday's game against the Pirates.
He was 1-for-23 in his last five games so tonight was a good time to get back on track.
