The Braves are sending Marcell Ozuna back to Atlanta with the hope that he will not miss significant time after dislocating two fingers on his left hand during a 3-1 win over the Red Sox on Tuesday night at Fenway Park.

Braves manager Brian Snitker said Ozuna dislocated his ring and middle fingers while sliding headfirst toward third base in the third inning. The veteran outfielder will be evaluated by highly-regarded hand specialist Dr. Gary Lourie in Atlanta on Wednesday or Thursday.
