Braves right-hander Gant leaves game with apparent injury
ATLANTA (AP) Braves rookie right-hander John Gant left Monday night's game against the Cleveland Indians with a left oblique strain.
After giving up a single to Chris Gimenez in the third inning, Gant grabbed his left side near his ribs after throwing a pitch to Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer. Assistant trainer Jim Lovell and interim manager Brian Snitker joined Gant on the mound. Gant left with Lovell after throwing a warm-up pitch.
Rookie Tyrell Jenkins replaced Gant with the Indians leading 1-0.
The Braves said Gant's status will be reassessed Tuesday.
