Freddie Freeman told Mark Bowman of that his left wrist feels strong.
Freeman required surgery for a fractured left wrist last May and dealt with some fatigue down the stretch after returning earlier than expected. He said during the Braves' Chop Fest event on Saturday that he has regained strength in the wrist and has even started hitting earlier than usual in order to test his progress. "I did it in 25-degree weather on purpose the first day just to see if there would be any aches or pains," explained Freeman. "I have had zero problems. Everything feels great and everything feels strong." Freeman batted .307/.403/.586 with 28 homers and 71 RBI over 117 games last season and should be one of the most productive fantasy first baseman in 2018 if healthy. Jan 29 - 9:50 AM

Freddie Freeman (illness) went 1-for-4 with a single and a strikeout in his return to action Sunday against the Phillies.

Freeman missed Saturday's game with a stomach virus, but he should be good to go the rest of the way. The slugger is batting .309 with five homers and a .967 OPS in September.

Freddie Freeman is working through a stomach virus.

That's the reason for his absence from the Braves' starting lineup Saturday against the Phillies. The hope is Freeman will feel well enough to play Sunday. "It’s a situation where we didn’t want him around everybody," Braves manager Brian Snitker said. "It sounds like a 24-hour bug, something his whole family had."

Freddie Freeman is not in the Braves' starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Phillies.

It's a tough break for Freeman owners having him get a rare day off in a nice matchup against Henderson Alvarez and the Phillies. Look for him to be back in there on Sunday and most days for the remainder of the season.

Freddie Freeman went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a loss to the Nationals on Wednesday.

He took ace starter Gio Gonzalez over the wall in the first inning for his only hit in four chances on the evening. The first baseman is having a mighty impressive campaign at the dish despite missing six weeks with a fractured wrist. He has a .317/.412/.611 slash line with 28 home runs, 70 RBI and 79 runs scored in only 106 games. His seven stolen bases are a career high.

Freddie Freeman went 2-for-4 with a home run in Saturday's loss to the Mets.

Freeman hit a solo shot off Mets starter Jacob deGrom in the sixth inning, the only run the Braves could muster against the right-hander. For Freeman, the dong was his 27th of the year, putting him in position to reach the 30-homer plateau for the second consecutive year with a strong finish. A fractured wrist stole a good portion of his season and has sapped some of his power, per Freeman, but in his 103 games he's been nothing short of terrific, batting .319/.417/.612.

Freddie Freeman had three hits -- including a three-run homer -- in Tuesday's win over the Nationals.

Freeman's blast off of Gio Gonzalez in the third inning put the Braves up 4-0 at the time and that wound up being more than enough. For a guy who admitted that his wrist still isn't 100 percent yet, Freeman sure is still a dangerous hitter. He's batting .378 with three home runs so far in September.

Freddie Freeman clobbered his 25th home run of the year as the Braves fell to the Marlins on Friday night.

Unfortunately, his solo shot off of Jose Urena in the fourth inning accounted for the entirety of the Braves' offense in the ballgame. He also singled and drew a walk in the contest, finishing the night 2-for-3. Freeman is now hitting a robust .319/.417/.617 with 25 bombs and 64 RBI.

Freddie Freeman is in Monday's lineup against the Rangers.

Freeman was scheduled to have his left wrist examined when the Braves returned home on Monday and apparently they didn't find anything to be worried about. The 27-year-old admitted that his wrist is getting weaker as he continues to play and it shows in his lack of power of late. Fantasy owners will likely have to wait for 2018 to get him back to 100 percent.

Freddie Freeman will have his left wrist examined on Monday when the Braves return home.

The exam is considered precautionary, as Freeman and the team are confident the weakness he's feeling isn't being caused by anything being structurally wrong. "There's no pain," Freeman said. "I just have no strength." Freeman is hitting .294/.375/.520 in 53 games since returning from a fractured wrist, but he's hit only 10 homers and he's probably not going to feel 100 percent until spring training.

Freddie Freeman feels like the wrist he broke in May is getting weaker as he continues to play.

"It feels like I'm swinging a wet newspaper," he said Saturday. Wet newspaper wouldn't seem to bode well for his power production, and if it gets bad enough, the Braves might decide to have him shut it down and get ready for 2018.

Freddie Freeman went 2-for-5 with a home run, three RBI and two runs scored during Saturday's loss to the Cubs.

He also walked in the high-scoring ballgame. He homered off left-hander Jon Lester with a runner aboard in the third inning and drove in another run with a double in the eighth. Freeman's numbers are impressive despite spending six weeks on the disabled list earlier in the year. He has a .313 batting average with 24 home runs and 60 RBI in 339 plate appearances.

Freddie Freeman went 1-for-4 with an RBI double in the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Phillies.

Freeman picked up an RBI double in the ninth inning as the Braves pulled away for a 5-2 win. In 86 games this season, he owns a .318/.415/.615 triple-slash with 22 homers and 55 RBI. His left wrist is still not completely healthy and has sapped some of his power in the second half, as he has just two home runs in the last three weeks.

Freddie Freeman homered and doubled against the Phillies in the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader.

Freeman's wrist isn't back to full strength, so he hasn't been showing as much power of late. The homer was his second in three weeks, with the other one coming at Coors Field on Aug. 17.
Wed, Aug 30, 2017 03:23:00 PM

Freddie Freeman reached base three times, drove in a run and scored a run Tuesday against the Mariners.

Freeman admitted earlier Tuesday that his left wrist still isn't 100 percent and is affecting his power, and both of his hits Tuesday were singles. However, one of them plated a run, giving him 51 RBI over 80 games this season.
