Freddie Freeman’s Wrist Injury Ends 234 Game Playing Streak

Dr Pruzansky | June 23, 2015

Braves’ first baseman Freddie Freeman will no longer have the longest active streak of games played in the majors after Thursday.

Freeman suffered a right wrist sprain while batting last Saturday in the team’s 5-3 win against the Mets.

He then aggravated the injury on Wednesday in the team’s game against the Red Sox, and was forced to leave after six innings.

“It takes a lot for me to come out of a game and not play in a game… hopefully (I’ll) be back Friday,” Freeman said.

At 234 consecutive games, Freeman wasn’t drawing close to the all-time record of 2,632 consecutive game streak of Cal Ripken Jr., but that’s a record that may never be broken.
