Braves' McCarthy dislocates shoulder vs. Nats


Atlanta Braves right-handed starter Brandon McCarthy injured his left shoulder covering first base on a grounder in a game against the Nationals Wednesday.

He suffered a partial dislocation and a trainer appeared to have popped it back in. McCarthy recorded the out, which was the last of the bottom of the fifth inning.

The Braves said McCarthy is day-to-day.

Left-hander Sam Freeman replaced McCarthy on the mound to start the bottom of the sixth.

Last season with the Los Angeles Dodgers, McCarthy dislocated his left shoulder during a kettlebell exercise and landed on the disabled list.
