Injury Scout - DeMuth Out Early After Foul to Arm

HP Umpire Dana DeMuth left Friday's Braves-Padres game in San Diego after a first-inning foul ball struck his arm.

With one out and one on in the top of the 1st inning, Braves batter Freddie Freeman fouled a 1-0 96.2-mph fastball from Padres pitcher Dinelson Lamet into DeMuth's left forearm, prompting a visit from the trainer and the decision for DeMuth to leave the game.

1B Umpire Angel Hernandez served as acting Crew Chief and HP Umpire for the remainder of the game with 2B Umpire Chris Segal sliding over to first base. 3B Umpire Carlos Torres remained at the hot corner.
