According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, Braves general manager John Coppolella strongly denied that the team is considering trading Freddie Freeman.
There's been all sorts of chatter about Freeman's future after last week's trade of Andrelton Simmons, but Coppolella tried to put the speculation to rest. "I cannot make it any more clear: We are not trading Freddie Freeman," said Coppolella. "We are not. I’d give my right arm before we trade Freddie Freeman. It is not happening." You can't blame fans for being skeptical about those words, but the Braves are rebuilding with aim of being competitive when they move into their new suburban ballpark in 2017 and (as of now) they want Freeman to be a part of it. The 26-year-old is under contract through 2021. Nov 18 - 8:43 AM

Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said Tuesday on MLB Network Radio on Sirius XM that Freddie Freeman will "absolutely" be with the team on Opening Day.

After shortstop Andrelton Simmons was dealt to the Angels last week, there has been some chatter about the Braves shopping Freeman. Things could always change -- and Gonzalez might not be privy to all of the front office's conversations -- but it appears to be due diligence more than anything else. Freeman still has six years and $118.5 million remaining on his contract, so he could still be around by the time the Braves are relevant again.

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the Braves have been shopping first baseman Freddie Freeman.

Several league sources called Freeman "the talk of the Arizona Fall League" as general manager John Coppolella has been talking to several clubs. Prevailing wisdom is that the Braves would like to shed salary this winter, and Freeman is still owed $116.5 million over the next six seasons.

Freddie Freeman (wrist) struck out as a pinch-hitter in the Braves' win over the Cardinals in the second half of Sunday's doubleheader.

Freeman didn't make a start over the final weekend due to a lingering right wrist injury. He now has the time and space to get it back near 100 percent, whether through surgery or extensive rest and rehab. The 26-year-old first baseman finished the 2015 season with a .276/.370/.471 batting line, 18 home runs, and 66 RBI in 118 games. He is under contract with Atlanta through 2021.
Oct 5 - 9:02 AM

Freddie Freeman (wrist) will not start any more games this season.

He will be available to pinch-hit, but Freeman's nagging right wrist ailment will keep him from being in the lineup. The first baseman noted that he's dealing with a small bone spur in the wrist, though he doesn't think he'll need surgery. Those in redraft leagues can feel free to go ahead and drop him if they haven't already.
Sep 30 - 3:50 PM

Freddie Freeman (wrist) remained out of the Braves' lineup Wednesday.

He hasn't played since exiting Sunday's game with recurring right wrist discomfort. At this point, there would seem to be a good chance the Braves shut Freeman down, although they say they'll continue to evaluate him on a day-to-day basis. Nick Swisher is at first base Wednesday.
Sep 30 - 3:07 PM

Freddie Freeman (wrist) is in Tuesday's lineup against the Nationals.

Freeman was forced to exit Sunday's game with recurring wrist pain, but he feels well enough to give it a go. His status will likely be reevaluated on a daily basis for the final week.
Sep 29 - 3:17 PM

Freddie Freeman (wrist) is considered day-to-day.

Freeman has been dealing with a right wrist injury since early August and had to make an early exit from Sunday's game due to recurring discomfort. He'll likely be day-to-day the rest of the way.
Sep 29 - 12:36 PM

Freddie Freeman is scheduled to visit with a hand specialist on Monday.

Freeman has been playing through a right wrist injury since early August. He still hopes to continue doing so for the remainder of the season, but the team wants an update on his status before allowing him to do so.
Sep 27 - 4:36 PM

Freddie Freeman belted his 18th home run of the season as the Braves lost a slugfest against the Marlins in Miami on Friday night.

Freeman's two-run blast pulled the Braves to within 12-8 in the seventh inning. He also collected a pair of singles and drew a walk in the ballgame, finishing the night 3-for-4 with three runs scored and two RBI. He's having another very solid season offensively, slashing .283/.373/.482 with 18 long balls and 66 RBI.
Sep 25 - 11:12 PM

Freddie Freeman had five runs batted in after entering as a pinch-hitter in Wednesday's win over the Mets.

Freeman pinch-hit for the pitcher in the seventh inning and plated two runs with a double to right field, giving the Braves a 3-2 lead. In the ninth inning, he blasted a three-run home run to the opposite field off of Jeurys Familia to break a 3-3 tie. The first baseman is battling a minor wrist injury. Freeman carries a .278/.369/.471 triple-slash line with 17 home runs and 64 RBI on the year.
Sep 23 - 10:00 PM

Freddie Freeman (wrist) expects to return to the Braves' starting lineup on Friday.

Freeman aggravated his right wrist on Tuesday night, but it doesn't sound like a major setback. He'll be available off the bench Wednesday and should return after Thursday's scheduled team off day.
Sep 23 - 5:02 PM

Freddie Freeman went 1-for-2 with two walks and an RBI single as the Braves walked off 2-1 versus the Phillies on Sunday.

Freeman drove in the Braves' first run in the first inning with an RBI single to left-center against Aaron Nola. It would serve as the only run between both sides until the ninth inning. The first baseman has had another solid year at the dish, batting .280/.372/.468 with 16 home runs and 59 RBI.
Sep 20 - 4:22 PM

Freddie Freeman went 1-for-3 with a two-run double and a walk in Saturday's win over the Phillies.

Freeman had the biggest hit of the game. The Braves entered the eighth inning down 1-0, but after they put two runners on, he doubled off Jerome Williams to plate the two runs. The Phillies would be unable to overcome the sudden 2-1 deficit and fell by that final score. Injuries have limited Freeman to just 106 games this season, but when he's seen the field, he's been his typically productive self with a .279/.369/.468 triple-slash, 16 homers and 58 RBI.
Sep 19 - 9:52 PM

Freddie Freeman went 1-for-4 with an RBI single and two strikeouts in Saturday's loss to the Mets.

Freeman managed an RBI single in the first inning against Mets starter Noah Syndergaard. It would be his only hit of the game. In an even 100 games this season, he's slashing .283/.372/.477 with 16 homers and 55 RBI. The triple-slash falls in line with his career numbers, though injuries have sapped a fair bit of his potential playing time in 2015.
