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.

Braves placed 1B Freddie Freeman on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 18, with a right wrist contusion.

The move is now official. Freeman's wrist issue isn't believed to be serious, so there's a chance he'll be ready to return after the minimum 15 days, but it's still a big loss for Altanta. The 25-year-old is batting .299/.367/.520 with 12 home runs and 41 RBI over 66 games this season.

Freddie Freeman (wrist) is expected to be placed on the 15-day disabled list.

The Braves have yet to make an official announcement, but Joey Terdoslavich is expected to take his place on the active roster. While Freeman will miss a couple of weeks, Mark Bowman of MLB.com hears that his wrist injury is not believed to be serious.
Jun 23 - 12:19 PM

MLB.com's Mark Bowman reports that "it sounds like there's a strong possibility" Freddie Freeman (wrist) will be placed on the disabled list.

Results of the MRI on Freeman's right wrist haven't been revealed yet, but it was apparently bad enough that he'll be out at least a couple weeks. The move likely won't be made official until Tuesday since the Braves are off Monday. Kelly Johnson has been filling in for Freeman at first base and should continue to do so, although Joey Terdoslavich is expected to be called up to take Freeman's roster spot and he could also see some time at first.

Freddie Freeman is set to undergo an MRI exam on his injured wrist on Monday.

Freeman missed the entire weekend series against the Mets and became frustrated at the lingering pain while attempting to take swings in the indoor batting cages on Sunday. There's a chance that the slugger could be headed for a trip to the disabled list, but nothing will be known until after Monday's exam.

Freddie Freeman will have his ailing right wrist examined by a specialist on Sunday.

Freeman received a cortisone shot late last week but was still sore when he swung a bat on Sunday, so the Braves are trying to get a better handle on the situation. It's too soon to say whether the disabled list might be a possibility, but it can't be ruled out.

Freddie Freeman (wrist) could undergo an MRI on Monday.

Freeman's right wrist was still sore when he swung a bat Sunday, and he was out of the lineup for a third straight game. That the wrist is still sore following a cortisone shot is obviously not a good sign, so the Braves might send him for an exam.
Jun 21 - 2:34 PM

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

He hasn't played since Thursday due to a right wrist sprain. Freeman will aim to return to the lineup on Tuesday following Monday's off day. Kelly Johnson is at first base again.

Freddie Freeman (wrist) remains out of the Braves lineup on Saturday.

Freeman acknowledged the possibility that he may miss the entire weekend series, so this doesn't come as a tremendous surprise. Kelly Johnson will once again start in his place at first base and hit third for the Braves.
Jun 20 - 3:33 PM

Freddie Freeman (wrist) acknowledged on Friday that he might not play all weekend.

Freeman is sitting out a second straight game Friday with a right wrist sprain. He's aiming to play Saturday, but the wrist is still sore after a cortisone shot and the Braves might elect to hold him out all weekend. Kelly Johnson is filling in at first base Friday.
Jun 19 - 4:27 PM

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

It's the second straight game he's missed with a sprained right wrist. Freeman was given a pain-killing injection and could be back in there on Saturday. Kelly Johnson is at first base Friday.

Freddie Freeman will miss Thursday's game with a right wrist sprain.

Daniel Castro pinch-hit for Freeman in Wednesday's game, but it's unclear when the first baseman sustained the injury. He told reporters he received an injection Wednesday evening in hopes of being ready to play Friday. It's day to day for now, but Freeman owners should obviously monitor his status prior to putting him back in the lineup on Friday.
Jun 17 - 10:50 PM

Freddie Freeman went 3-for-5 with a homer, two doubles and two RBI in Thursday's extra-inning loss to the Padres.

Freeman's RBI double off of Andrew Cashner in the first inning knotted the game at 1-1. His solo homer against Cashner in the sixth put the Braves up 2-1, but the Braves would blow a 4-1 lead late to ultimately lose 6-4 in 11 innings. The Braves are offensively challenged as a team, but that's no fault of Freeman's, as the first baseman is hitting .304/.369/.530 with 11 homers, 37 RBI and 39 runs scored.

Freddie Freeman homered twice and collected four RBI in Wednesday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

The Braves ended up losing the contest, but it was no fault of Freeman's. The first baseman hit a three-run shot off Diamondbacks starter Rubby De La Rosa in the second inning before launching a solo shot in the fourth. He's been one of the Braves' sole sources of offense since the season began, but Freeman is still hitting .299/.362/.525 with 10 homers, 33 RBI and 35 runs scored despite having little help around him in the lineup.
