The Braves said utility man Micah Johnson suffered a sprained left wrist while making a catch against the Phillies on Tuesday.
Johnson, playing left field, tracked down Pedro Florimon’s shallow fly ball and made a diving catch near the foul line for the final out of the fifth inning. Johnson’s wrist bent violently when his glove hit the ground.
The Braves said an X-ray on Johnson’s wrist was negative and listed his status as day-to-day.
“It hurt pretty bad,” Johnson said. “I’m just glad I caught the ball.”
The Braves acquired Johnson in a January trade with the Dodgers. He played a total of 43 games over the past two seasons with the White Sox and Dodgers while batting .226 with a .299 on-base percentage.
