Freddie Freeman finished 3-for-5 with an RBI and a stolen base Friday against the Mets.
Freeman put the Braves ahead with an RBI double against Matt Harvey in the third inning and they never looked back. The 26-year-old hit for the cycle earlier this week against the Reds and has pulled his batting average up 30 points (from .242 to .272) since Sunday. Unfortunately, the lack of talent around him will continue to cap his upside in fantasy leagues. Jun 17 - 11:04 PM

Date:

Freddie Freeman launched three hits Thursday including his 12th home run of the season Thursday in a win over the Reds.

He took Dan Straily deep for a two-run blast in the third inning and also contributed a pair of singles. Freeman has now logged three or more hits in three of his last four games. His average has leaped from .242 to .265 during that span. Freeman's numbers as a whole are still underwhelming, but the 26-year-old appears to have finally found his stroke after a trying first two months. It's a welcome sight for the Braves, who own MLB's worst record at 20-46.

Freddie Freeman became the first player to hit for the cycle in the majors this year, finishing 4-for-7 on the night as the Braves bested the Reds in 13 innings.

Freeman doubled in the third, tripled in the fourth, homered in the sixth, then completed the cycle with a single in the 11th inning. The four hits boosted his line to .257/.349/.461 on the season. He has struggled this year in terms of batting average but now with 11 home runs he is pacing towards a career high in that category. His runs and RBI will lag all year due to the Braves' weak lineup. It was the first cycle for Atlanta since Mark Kotsay's in August 2008.
Jun 16 - 1:05 AM

Freddie Freeman went 3-for-5 and smashed his 10th home run of the season in Monday's loss to the Reds.

Freeman singled in a run in the first and plated two in the fifth with a long home run to right-center field. The dinger was his first in his last 11 contests, as the first baseman has struggled so far in June. Freeman is sporting a .250/.341/.435 batting line on the season.

Freddie Freeman finished one-for-three with a walk and a strikeout on Saturday night versus Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers.

When a team is facing Clayton Kershaw not much can be expected from the offense and that was definitely the case tonight. Freeman's one hit and one walk was the best the Braves hitters could manage in the 4-0 shutout. Freeman has had a dull spring so far but his track record indicates he will hone his swing and deliver a sharper summer.
Jun 5 - 2:00 AM

Freddie Freeman slugged a walk-off homer in the bottom of the 11th inning in Wednesday's 5-4 win over the Braves.

Freeman had been 0-for-3 with a walk and three strikeouts prior to his game-winning blast, but reliever Derek Law hung a belt-high slider and the 26-year-old first baseman sent it into the right-center bleachers. It marked his ninth homer of the year. The flaccid nature of the Braves' offense hurts his fantasy value, but it's important to note that he's been far from stellar himself, hitting only .251/.339/.431. He's probably not a top-20 fantasy first baseman this year, if we're being honest.

Freddie Freeman homered twice and knocked in four runs in Friday’s victory over the Phillies.

Freeman connected for a two-run blast off Aaron Nola in the third inning before adding another one off Brett Oberholtzer in the ninth. It was the seventh multi-homer game of his career. After getting off to a slow start, he’s now up to eight home runs overall to go along with a .272/.364/.483 batting line. Before Friday, his previous six homers were all solo shots. Obviously the lineup around him limits his upside in fantasy leagues.
May 20 - 10:49 PM

Freddie Freeman went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Wednesday's victory over the Phillies.

Freeman has come alive after a rough start to the season. He's gotten a hit in 15 of his last 18 games, and he has a 14-game on-base streak. The 26-year-old now has a .289/.391/.500 slash line with six homers. However, the poor hitters surrounding him are the main reasons why he only has 10 RBI on 33 base hits, so while lineup protection may not matter too much in terms of impacting his overall slash line, it negatively affects his fantasy value nonetheless.
May 11 - 9:50 PM

Freddie Freeman singled and belted a solo homer in Monday's loss to the Phillies.

His blast off of closer Jeanmar Gomez in the ninth inning cut the Phils' lead to one, but Gomez stranded the tying run at first base. Freeman took a while to get going but is now batting .375 with four longballs over his last 15 games.
May 10 - 9:48 PM

Freddie Freeman hit his fourth home run of the season in a loss to the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

Freeman finished 1-for-3 with a walk in the game. The homer, a solo blast, was his third in his last nine games. After finishing April on a tear, Freeman is batting .333 (7-for-21) in six May games. His overall line is up to .275/.378/.451.
May 7 - 11:36 PM

Freddie Freeman went 2-for-4 with a stolen base in Friday’s loss to the Diamondbacks.

It was his first stolen base since last June 15. Freeman was 2-for-25 (.080) to begin the year, but he’s batting .338 (25-for-74) over his last 19 games. He’s slashing .273/.374/.424 overall. Those are Barry Bonds numbers compared to most of his teammates.
May 6 - 11:18 PM

Freddie Freeman singled and launched a solo homer in Friday's loss to the Cubs.

Freeman belted a 3-0 pitch from Jon Lester deep into the Wrigley Field bleachers in right field in the fourth inning. That got the scoring going, but the Cubbies rallied late with five runs in the eighth. Freeman is really starting to heat up, batting .444 with two homers over his last seven games.
Apr 29 - 5:52 PM

Freddie Freeman stayed hot Thursday, finishing 3-for-4 with a walk in a win over the Red Sox.

After an ugly start, Freeman has quietly improved at the plate in recent days. In his last six games, the first baseman is 10-for-23 (.434) with two doubles and two RBI. He's still not hitting the ball over the boards -- he has just two homers on the year -- but the power will come as he continues to get more comfortable at the dish.
Apr 28 - 11:06 PM

Freddie Freeman has been dropped to sixth in the lineup for Monday's game against the Red Sox.

It's his first start out of the sixth spot since August 15, 2012. Freeman showed some signs of life by going 2-for-4 with an RBI double on Saturday, but he's batting just .177/.311/.258 through his first 18 games this season.
Apr 25 - 7:02 PM

Freddie Freeman went 2-for-4 with an RBI double in Saturday's loss to the Mets.

The double was Freeman's first extra-base hit in a week, and he still hasn't homered since the season opener. He has been hitting better of late, going 9-for-33 (.272) in his last eight games. Freeman is too good of a hitter to be held down for long, so hopefully these recent developments are signs of better days ahead.
