Braves first baseman Freeman removed with right elbow soreness

September 14 2019 4:48 AM

Freddie Freeman experienced some discomfort during the Atlanta Braves' matchup against the Washington Nationals and was forced to leave the contest early because of it.

The Braves announced that the first baseman was removed from the game because of right elbow soreness.

The four-time All-Star has been a big part of Atlanta's success in 2019.

Freeman, 30, is having a career year and is slashing .303/.393/.568 with 38 home runs and a team-leading 117 RBIs.

Atlanta entered Friday atop the National League (NL) East with a 91-57 record.

Without Freeman, a 2018 Gold Glove Award winner, the Braves would likely see a decline offensively and defensively.

Freeman was hitless in two at-bats against Washington before exiting the contest in the bottom of the fourth inning.
