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.

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.
Apr 23 - 10:40 PM

Freddie Freeman went 1-for-3 with two runs scored Friday against the Marlins.

Freeman broke an 0-for-16 skid with a single in the seventh and eventually came around to score. He also scored a run in the eighth after he was hit by a pitch. The 26-year-old is batting just .107 (3-for-28) so far. Things can only get better from here, but his fantasy upside is limited in this lineup.
Apr 15 - 10:38 PM

Freddie Freeman is getting a day off Thursday.

Freeman went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts on Wednesday night and is 2-for-25 (.080) to open the 2016 season. Kelly Johnson will start at first base and hit cleanup against Nationals right-hander Stephen Strasburg.
Apr 14 - 12:21 PM

Freddie Freeman went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts on Wednesday, bringing his slash line down to .080/.303/.200 on the year.

It’s often said that lineup protection doesn’t matter much, but Freeman just isn’t getting anything to hit with guys like Nick Markakis and Adonis Garcia sandwiching him in the batting order. After a hitless evening with a pair of whiffs, his strikeout rate is approaching 30 percent, far above his 20.8 percent career norm, and there’s little reason to believe his situation gets much better while he’s stuck in Atlanta.
Apr 13 - 9:46 PM

Freddie Freeman smacked a solo homer in Monday's loss to the Nationals.

Freeman was behind a couple fastballs from Max Scherzer in a first-inning at-bat, but Scherzer challenged him again with a third heater and Freeman knocked it over the center field wall, just over Ben Revere's glove. You still have to have Freeman's wrist injury from last season in the back of your mind, but he appears healthy for now.
Apr 4 - 7:44 PM

Freddie Freeman hit two homers and walked Thursday against the Nationals.

Freeman is sending so many mixed messages that we have no idea whether to recommend him or not. His right wrist was a problem last year, lingered into the offseason and then was apparently aggravated earlier this month. However, he's been killing the ball when he's played and he said that the problem this month was unrelated to the old stuff. We still suggest being wary, even if the four homers in 19 at-bats say different.
Mar 17 - 5:06 PM

MLB.com's Mark Bowman reports that Freddie Freeman (wrist) "displayed absolutely no hesitation" while taking cuts in batting practice Sunday.

Alarm bells were sounded when Freeman had to leave Friday's game with soreness in the right wrist that plagued him for much of last season. However, the first baseman has insisted that the recent problem was unrelated to last year's issues and the plan is for him to play Sunday and then Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. It looks like Freeman may have dodged a bullet here, but he still holds ample fantasy risk heading into the season.
