Freddie Freeman injury update: Dodgers first baseman reportedly clear for Opening Day after leaving World Baseball Classic with hamstring injury

The Los Angeles Dodgers might be looking at Canada’s World Baseball Classic a bit sideways after Tuesday’s Canada vs. Colombia game.

First baseman Freddie Freeman, representing Canada, was pulled from the lineup in the fourth inning following a popout in the third in which he was slow getting out of the box.

Initially, it wasn’t announced why Freeman was taken out.

According to the Fox broadcast, Freeman was taken out because of a “slight hamstring issue.”

Because the World Baseball Classic is secondary to the MLB season — which is right around the corner — it appears to have been precautionary.

Freeman, who was emotional to represent Canada to honor his late mother, was hoping to help Canada out of pools for the first time in its World Baseball Classic history.

During Canada’s game against Mexico, the broadcast stated Dodgers manager said Freeman will be clear for Opening Day and the hamstring injury is “mild.”
