Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman headed to DL
Freeman, who his hitting .412 with one homer and seven RBIs through the first five games, said he was upset that team management did not tell him before making the decision.
He added that the injury first occurred in a workout March 31, the day before the season started, and that he wanted to keep playing through the pain.
Blake DeWitt was called up from Triple-A Gwinnett to take Freeman's spot on the 25-man roster.
