Freddie Freeman was pulled from Monday's game versus the Giants with a right oblique strain.

Well, at least he didn't aggravate his wrist injury. The Braves are calling Freeman day-to-day for the time being, but, as we all know, oblique injuries usually wind up leading to stints on the disabled list. Chris Johnson would be poised to take over at first base if Freeman misses significant time.
Aug 3 - 9:13 PM

Freddie Freeman left Monday's game against the Giants with an undisclosed injury.

He didn't suffer an obvious injury but was replaced at first base by Chris Johnson in the top of the fifth inning. The worry has to be that Freeman re-injured his right wrist, but the Braves should offer more on his status later Monday.
Aug 3 - 8:39 PM

Freddie Freeman belted his 14th home run of the season in a losing effort against the Phillies on Friday.

The Phillies jumped out to an early 9-0 lead in this one, and Freeman's two-run shot in the eighth merely made it a 9-3 ballgame. He also singled in the contest, finishing the night 2-for-4 and raising his season slash to .288/.354/.509 to go along with 14 bombs and 45 RBI.
Jul 31 - 10:30 PM

Freddie Freeman went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run on Tuesday as the Braves lost 7-3 to the Orioles.

Freeman, playing in his fourth game since being activated from the disabled list, staked the Braves to a 2-0 lead when he drilled a two-run home run off of Ubaldo Jimenez in the first inning. He's now 2-for-14 since being activated, but still owns a terrific .291/.359/.511 batting line along with 13 home runs and 43 RBI.
Jul 28 - 10:17 PM

Braves activated 1B Freddie Freeman from the 15-day disabled list.

Freeman has been sidelined since June 18 due to a bone bruise in his wrist, but the club apparently feels that he's ready to return without a lengthy minor league rehab assignment. Before hitting the DL, the 25-year-old slugger was hitting .299/.367/.520 with 12 homers and 41 RBI in 66 games.
Jul 25 - 3:14 PM

Freddie Freeman (wrist) is expected to travel to Florida on Wednesday for 2-3 more days of working out.

If that all goes well, he should then be cleared for a minor league rehab assignment. David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal Constitution suspects that Freeman, who has been out since June 18 with a bone bruise in his wrist, could return to the Braves' active roster late next week in Philadelphia.
Jul 21 - 4:27 PM

Freddie Freeman (wrist) could begin a rehab assignment in the next day or two.

A recent MRI showed that Freeman still has fluid in his ailing right wrist, but the first baseman hit off a tee and took soft-toss Monday with no issues. He'll surely need to take regular batting practice before being cleared for game action, but it sounds like that should happen soon. A return before the end of the month looks possible.
Jul 20 - 4:34 PM

An MRI showed that fluid still remains in Freddie Freeman's right wrist.

Freeman was still able to take 30 dry swings on Sunday with 50-75 percent intensity, but obviously he's not going to be able to begin a rehab assignment on Sunday or Monday as previously hoped. He'll be re-evaluated later Sunday and there could be more know about a potential timetable for Freeman at that time.
Jul 19 - 3:01 PM

Freddie Freeman (wrist) could begin a rehab assignment on Sunday or Monday.

He's still likely at least 10 days away from returning, but this would qualify as good news since just last week it was looking like Freeman might not be back by the first week of August. The first baseman has been on the shelf for the last month with a right wrist issue but finally appears to have made real progress.
Jul 17 - 4:50 PM

Braves GM John Hart said Wednesday that Freddie Freeman (wrist) might not be back by the first week of August.

His wrist injury simply isn't healing as quickly as the Braves were hoping. Freeman has been out since June 18 and isn't close to beginning a minor league rehab assignment. Kelly Johnson and Chris Johnson have been splitting time at first base for the Braves.
Jul 15 - 4:52 PM

The Braves expect Freddie Freeman (wrist) to return before the end of July.

They're not sure the first baseman will be ready immediately after the All-Star break, but he'll be ready no later than July 31. Freeman has been on the shelf since June 18 with a right wrist contusion. Kelly Johnson has been handling the bulk of the action at first base in Freeman's absence.
Jul 8 - 1:00 PM

Freddie Freeman (wrist) confirmed Thursday that he'll be out through the All-Star break.

The Braves were initially hoping that Freeman would be ready to return sooner, but that was mostly wishful thinking. He's aiming to rehab during the All-Star break and rejoin the Braves shortly after.
Jul 2 - 4:00 PM

Freddie Freeman (wrist) might be held out until after the All-Star break.

The Braves had been optimistic about getting him back before the break, but that's looking unlikely now. Freeman hasn't had a setback with his right wrist, but it makes sense to give him a little extra time. "We were hoping we could get him shortly after the 15 days, but I think it’s going to be a little longer than that," manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "Not quite sure how much longer. We had our fingers crossed and were optimistic to get him (then or soon after), but I think it’s going to be little longer."
Jun 30 - 6:12 PM

Freddie Freeman received a platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) injection in his right wrist earlier this week.

Freeman was placed on the disabled list this week with what was termed as a right wrist contusion. The hope is that the PRP injection will help speed up the healing process. It's unlikely he'll be ready when he's first eligible on July 3, but the Braves are optimistic it could happen prior to the All-Star break.
