“Jammed his thumb, screwed it up, so he’s going to be put on the IL,” Braves manager Brian Snitker said late Saturday night. “They’ll fly him back to Atlanta in the morning and have our doctors check him out further.”
The injury occurred in the sixth inning when d’Arnaud was applying a tag at the plate. The Toronto baserunner, Randal Grichuk, representing the potential tying run, was out. But d’Arnaud appeared in pain as he left the field.
