Michael Bourn Injury: Atlanta Braves Center Fielder Expected Back In Lineup Wednesday

Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Leadoff man Michael Bourn is expected to be back in the lineup Wednesday, after missing Tuesday's game.

Atlanta Braves leadoff hitter and center fielder Michael Bourn jammed his left thumb while sliding head-first into a second base in the fourth inning of Saturday's win over the Phillies in Philadelphia.

He was evaluated by hand specialist, Dr. Gary Lourie, during the off-day yesterday, and no structural damage was found. The hand does remain sore, and kept Bourn out of the lineup during Tuesday's playoff clinching victory against the Marlins.

While he was a late scratch from the lineup on Tuesday, he is expected to be back in the lineup Wednesday, but with the team having clinched a playoff spot there is the possibility that they could hold Bourn out until his hand is closer to 100 percent.
