Braves right fielder Jason Heyward exited with an apparent thumb injury in the eighth inning of Wednesday's win over the Nationals.

Bowman added that X-rays on his thumb were negative.

The 25-year-old was pinch-hit for in the eighth inning in a two-run game the Braves ended up winning. He had made an early exit in a game in July due to lower back soreness but it's not immediately clear the extent of the thumb injury on Wednesday and whether it will cause him to miss time.
