Ozzie Albies left Saturday’s game against the Philadelphia Phillies after the fourth inning with what appeared to be a hand or finger injury. Albies was hurt sliding into second base as he tagged up on a fly out by Eddie Rosario. Albies could be seen looking at his pinky finger after the slide. He initially stayed in the game and scored on a two-run double by Ronald Acuña Jr. to give Atlanta a 4-0 lead.

Albies is playing in his second game since returning from the injured list after missing three months with a broken foot. He went 1-for-4 in Friday’s win and was 1-for-1 with a walk and two runs scored in Saturday’s game.

Vaughn Grissom replaced Albies at second base to start the fifth. We will pass along updates as soon as they become available.

UPDATED - The Braves announced that Albies left Saturday’s game with a fractured right pinky finger.

UPDATE - MLB.com’s Mark Bowman reports that Albies will miss the remainder of the regular season although he could return at some point during the postseason.
