Braves update: Michael Harris II exits game in sixth inning with apparent knee injury
By Steven Teal
The Atlanta Braves have a second possible injury to report as Michael Harris II exited after trying to leg out a hit at first base in the sixth inning of Wednesday's contest with the Marlins. Harris went down hard and appeared to hyperextend his right knee after passing the base and falling to the ground. He reached for the knee but was able to walk off on his own after being helped to his feet.
Hopefully this is precautionary because Harris is an important part of this team and seems to be figuring things out at the plate as he launched a two-run homer in Wednesday's game as well. No word yet from the Braves on his condition but he was replaced by Sam Hilliard in center after that happened.
Kyle Wright also left earlier in the game and one injury concern is enough but two is almost overwhelming. Let's hope Kyle is okay and that Michael is also going to be okay after what looked like a scary situation.
Stay tuned to HTHB for updates on both of their conditions.
