Freddie Freeman went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles and two RBI in Saturday's win over the Mets.
The Mets held a 3-0 lead in the eighth inning before Freeman tightened the game up considerably with a two-run double. Freeman would never find his way home to tie up the game, but the new jolt of life he offered carried over into the ninth, when the Braves rallied for a pair of runs against Jeurys Familia. The slugger was hit by a pitch on his left wrist on Wednesday, but has come back swinging fine, a welcome sight given that it was the same wrist which he fractured a year ago. This season, Freeman is slashing .296/.446/.490 with two home runs and 15 RBI across 71 at-bats. Apr 21 - 10:44 PM

Date:

Freddie Freeman (wrist) is starting at first base and hitting third Thursday night against the Mets.

Freeman took a pitch off his left wrist on Wednesday -- the same wrist he fractured last season -- but tests came back negative for any fractures and he has talked his way into the lineup for Thursday's series opener versus the Mets. What a gamer.
Apr 19 - 3:51 PM

Freddie Freeman has no fractures in his left wrist and is considered day-to-day.

Phew. Freeman got struck on the wrist by a 90 mph Holby Milner fastball on Wednesday night -- the same wrist he fractured in 2017 -- but all is apparently well. The star first baseman might only miss a game or two.
Apr 19 - 1:42 PM

Braves manager Brian Snitker did not provide an update on Freddie Freeman (wrist) after Wednesday's game with the Phillies.

The injury occurred in the eighth inning, so Freeman is likely still being evaluated and/or waiting for X-rays to come back. The star first baseman exited after being hit in the left wrist by Holby Milner. It was the same wrist that was fractured in 2017 that caused him to miss significant time. We may not have an answer on Freeman's status until Thursday, or late Wednesday at the earliest.
Apr 18 - 11:28 PM

Freddie Freeman exited Wednesday's game with the Phillies after being hit in the left wrist by a pitch.

It's the same left wrist that caused Freeman to miss significant time in 2017. He was replaced by pinch-runner Charlie Culberson. We'll certainly update you when we know more about the severity of the injury.
Apr 18 - 10:29 PM

Freddie Freeman had another solid night at the dish in Friday's victory over the Rockies, going 1-for-3 plus a pair of walks.

Freeman also drove in a run and scored a run in the contest. He's hitting a cool .409/.618/.818 with two homers and 10 RBI through the first seven games of the 2018 campaign.
Apr 6 - 8:39 PM

Freddie Freeman doubled twice and scored a run in the Braves' victory over the Nationals on Wednesday.

Freeman is batting .421/.621/.895 with three doubles, two home runs, nine RBI, nine runs scored, and 10 walks through six games this season. He could have been an MVP candidate last year had he stayed healthy.
Apr 4 - 3:52 PM

Freddie Freeman homered and drove in four runs on Tuesday, leading the Braves to a 13-6 victory over the Nationals.

Freeman blasted a three-run homer off of A.J. Cole in the second inning, increasing the Braves' early lead to 8-4. He added on an RBI single in the fifth inning as well, finishing the night 2-for-3 with three runs scored and a pair of walks. He's slashing a mighty .400/.640/.867 with two homers and nine RBI on the season.
Apr 3 - 11:14 PM

Freddie Freeman went 2-for-5 with an RBI single and an RBI double in Saturday's win over the Phillies.

Freeman collected an RBI single in the first inning and an RBI double in the sixth. The slugger has been groovin' early, having now homered, doubled, driven in four runs and scored five runs through his first nine at-bats of the young season. Freeman was waylaid by a wrist fracture for a solid chunk of the 2017 campaign, but so long as he can maintain his health this season, could be in for a monster year. During a healthy 2016 season, he slashed .302/.400/.569 with 34 homers and 91 RBI over the course of 158 games played.
Mar 31 - 11:10 PM

Freddie Freeman homered and finished 1-for-2 with two RBI and three runs scored in Thursday's Opening Day win over the Phillies.

Freeman got the Braves on the board with a two-run homer in the sixth inning, and he walked three times in the contest en route to scoring another two runs, including on Nick Markakis' walk-off homer in the ninth. An on-base machine with upper-tier power and hitting ability to go with it, a full healthy season from Freeman could be an MVP-type year in Atlanta.
Mar 30 - 1:33 AM

Freddie Freeman homered, doubled and walked against the Tigers on Friday.

Freeman, out No. 1 first baseman for fantasy purposes, is batting .341/.391/.585 this spring.
Mar 23 - 4:05 PM

Freddie Freeman got the Braves' only hit of the game in a Grapefruit League loss to the Cardinals on Saturday.

Other than four walks, Freeman's single was all the offense the Braves could muster in this one. Freeman is slashing .343/.378/.514 this spring and is poised to be one of the National League's best hitters again this year.
Mar 17 - 7:24 PM

Freddie Freeman went 3-for-3 and hit his first homer in a losing cause Tuesday against the Braves.

Freeman is off to a 9-for-28 start. The Braves wish they had a big bat to hit behind him this year, but what's more important is that they have runners on in front of him and they should do fairly well there with Ender Inciarte and Ozzie Albies.
Mar 13 - 5:15 PM

Freddie Freeman went 2-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored Sunday in the Braves' 5-2 Grapefruit League win over the Marlins.

Freeman singled in his first at-bat and then plated the first run of the game on an RBI double in the bottom of the fourth inning. The 28-year-old first baseman carries massive fantasy potential into the 2018 season after batting .307/.403/.586 with 28 home runs and 71 RBI over 117 games in 2017. He missed six weeks because of a fractured left wrist.
Mar 4 - 3:40 PM

Freddie Freeman told Mark Bowman of MLB.com 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.
