The Braves appeared to be bracing for bad news regarding the length of d’Arnaud’s absence.
“It’s not good,” Snitker said, “but until our doctors back in Atlanta can check him out we don’t know 100% (the severity).”
“I feel really bad about that,” pitcher Charlie Morton said of d’Arnaud’s injury. “If we have to miss him for any substantial amount of time, it’s not good.”
Alex Jackson replaced d’Arnaud behind the plate for the rest of Saturday’s game. Rookie William Contreras will be activated to replace d’Arnaud on the roster Sunday, Snitker said.
