“If there is a good thing, there’s not a surgical process,” Braves manager Brian Snitker said Wednesday afternoon.
Ozuna, 30, injured himself sliding into third base in a game against the Boston Red Sox. The Braves were hoping he did not fracture bones and was dealing with only a dislocation, but further testing revealed the breaks.
Snitker indicated that general manager Alex Anthopoulos was working the phones for a replacement but the Braves would play a man short on Wednesday.
Ozuna was hitting .213 with a .645 OPS when he went down.
