Braves could be without veteran catcher for a while

In Saturday’s night game of a doubleheader, multiple Braves went down with injuries. Atlanta saw Max Fried, Jackson Stephens, and Travis d’Arnaud all suffer different severity of injuries, with d’Arnaud’s being the most concerning. X-rays came back negative, but reports surfaced that the veteran catcher is in a walking boot today.

Although the x-rays were negative, it’s never a pleasant sight to see a player in a walking boot; hopefully, it’s just precautionary. Ronald Acuna Jr. was on a scooter after suffering a foot injury, and he never went to the injured list. So there’s reason to be hopeful regarding d’Arnaud’s injury.

The Braves have an incredible catching tandem with William Contreras able to step right in, and Chadwick Tromp will now be the backup.

The Braves have dropped three out of the series’ first four games, and they’ve been dealt another blow. The Mets are riding high and have DeGrom on the bump today. It’ll be a tall task for a hobbled Braves club to pull out a win to get the division lead down to 4.5.
