Atlanta Braves second baseman Ozzie Albies walked out of Saturday night’s 4-3 win over the Philadelphia Phillies with a broken right pinky finger, the team said.
Albies appeared injured when he slipped headfirst into second base in the fourth inning.
The injury occurred a day after he was activated from the 60-day injured list. He had been sidelined for 81 games with a broken left foot, sustained in June after a clumsy swing.
Albies, 25, is hitting .244 this season with eight homers and 35 RBIs. He is in his fifth major league season and won a Silver Slugger Award in 2019 and 2021.
Albies, who has been signed until 2025, led the National League in assists last season and has made two All-Star Game appearances.
