Freddie Freeman underwent an MRI on his injured right wrist and is likely to be placed on the disabled list on Tuesday according to MLB.com's Mark Bowman.

The Braves have not released the results of the MRI exam Freeman underwent Monday to determine what has caused his recent right wrist discomfort. But the 25-year-old did not travel with the club to Washington early Monday evening. The Braves open a series Tuesday night against the Nationals.

According to Bowman, Joey Terdoslavich is likely to get the call to replace Freeman on the active roster. Kelly Johnson has filled in at first so far in Freeman's absence and Terdoslavich would give Fredi Gonzalez another left handed option.

Freeman suffered the injury on a swing against the New York Mets last week. He played through the injury before exiting in the sixth inning of a game against the Boston Red Sox a few nights later. He is hitting .299 on the season with a team best 12 home runs and 41 RBIs.

UPDATED

Freeman will in fact go on the disabled list, but the diagnosis is encouraging in that it is not a serious injury.

The Braves have still yet to announce the roster move but Joey Terdoslavich is already with the team in Washington.
