May 19, 2017 7:09 AM

The Atlanta Braves will be without Freddie Freeman for approximately 10 weeks after an MRI and CT scan revealed a nondisplaced left wrist fracture.

Freeman will wear a cast for four weeks.

The first baseman leads the Major Leagues with a .748 slugging percentage and is second with a .461 on-base percentage. His 2.5 WAR was tied for third in baseball.

I just come in every day to try to help this team win and get back to the playoffs because it has been four years. ... I could care less about personal statistics at this point."
