Braves left fielder Marcell Ozuna left Atlanta's game at Boston on Tuesday after dislocating his left ring and middle fingers.

Manager Brian Snitker said Ozuna would return to Atlanta to have his hand assessed.

Ozuna was trying to take third base on an infield grounder to second base; but, on his head-first dive toward the bag, his hand hit the foot of Red Sox third baseman Rafael Devers at an awkward angle while he was tagged out.

Ozuna left the game accompanied by a trainer, with the hand covered by a towel. Ehire Adrianza replaced Ozuna in left field for Atlanta.

The team's high-priced offseason acquisition, Ozuna hit an RBI single earlier in the third inning. He is batting .213 with seven homers and 26 RBIs.
