Atlanta Braves news and notes from Saturday
Ozzie Albies suffered a fractured right pinky finger sliding into a base on Saturday night. He stayed in the game to finish the half-inning as a baserunner, but exited the game after that. This is just brutal for a guy who was playing in just his second game back from a fractured foot earlier this season. While he is unlikely to play any more in the regular season, he could be a possibility to return in the playoffs. Meanwhile his pal Ronald Acuna has had a spectacular two days, as he carried the Braves to victory on Saturday night, both offensively and defensively.
