Freddie Freeman went 2-for-3 with a home run and two RBI in a loss to the Marlins on Saturday.
Freeman had an RBI single in the first inning before launching his 32nd homer of the year in the sixth. The 32 home runs are a career best, as are his 95 runs scored and six steals. He probably won't touch the 109 RBI he collected in 2013 -- he's got 87 RBI now, with a handful of games left to go -- but there's no question it's been a tremendous year for the 27-year-old.

Freddie Freeman extended his hitting streak to 25 games by going 2-for-4 in a win over the Mets on Wednesday.

Both hits were singles. The hitting streak is a career-long for Freeman. The first baseman had a rough start to the season but has put up monster stats in the second half. Overall he is batting .303/.398/.565 with 31 home runs, 83 RBI and 93 runs scored on a low scoring team. His prowess has gone largely unnoticed due to the dismal season Atlanta is having.

Freddie Freeman fell a triple shy of the cycle Monday, going 4-for-5 with a homer and three RBI in a win over the Mets.

The Braves were massive underdogs in this one in a Noah Syndergaard/Aaron Blair matchup, but Atlanta wound up pounding out 13 hits and scoring seven runs. Freeman had four of those base knocks, including his 31st home run. The first baseman now boasts a 23-game hitting streak and has reached base in 39 games in a row. Freeman's batting line is up to .302/.397/.566.

Freddie Freeman has been excused from the Braves to be with his wife in labor.

Freeman actually bolted in the seventh inning of Wednesday night's game against the Marlins, with Blake Lalli taking over at first base in the top of the eighth. "I knew (Freeman's wife) was close," manager Brian Snitker said. "I just hope everything works out good for him. He's been on call for a while, and it finally happened." Freeman could be away for a couple of days.
Sep 15 - 11:00 AM

Freddie Freeman hit a two-run home run and finished with three RBI in Tuesday's loss to the Marlins.

The homer was Freeman's 30th of the year, the first time in his career he's hit the 30-homer milestone. It was also his 19th consecutive game with a hit, a pretty impressive streak for the 27-year-old. Freeman continues to put up terrific numbers in terrible situations in Atlanta, and this year he's doing it to the tune of a .296/.393/.558 line with those 30 homers, 78 RBI and 91 runs scored.
Sep 13 - 11:45 PM

Freddie Freeman capped a good night with a go-ahead RBI double in Friday’s 8-4 win over the Phillies.

Freeman reached base in four out of his five plate appearances, as he finished 2-for-3 with a pair of doubles, two walks and two runs scored. He’s now batting .389 with nine homers, nine doubles, 24 RBI, and 23 runs scored over his last 21 games. There were concerns about Freeman’s wrist during spring training and a lackluster supporting cast, but he has already managed a career-best 28 homers to go along with a .949 OPS.
Sep 2 - 11:52 PM

Freddie Freeman hit his 28th homer and walked twice Thursday in the Braves' 9-6 victory over the Padres.

Freeman ranks a mere 28th in the NL with 69 RBI, but this is still probably his best season to date. He's hit 28 homers, five more than ever before, and his .391 OBP is creeping up towards his career-high mark of .396 from his previous best season of 2013. He's up to fifth in the NL with a .942 OPS.
Sep 1 - 3:33 PM

Freddie Freeman clubbed his 27th home run of the season in a losing effort against the Giants on Sunday afternoon.

Freeman tagged Giants' ace Madison Bumgarner for the two-run blast in the sixth inning, cutting the Braves deficit at the time to 5-3. It was his lone hit in four at-bats on the afternoon. Freeman is now hitting .290/.386/.548 and has already far surpassed his career-best with 27 home runs.

Aug 23 - 1:16 AM

Freddie Freeman (finger) is back in Monday's lineup against the Diamondbacks.

Freeman got the day off Sunday after receiving a cortisone shot in his right middle finger on Saturday. He got treatment and hit in the cage on Monday with no issues, so he's ready to make his return to the lineup.
Aug 22 - 6:41 PM

Freddie Freeman was unavailable for Sunday's game against the Nationals after receiving a shot in the right middle finger on his right hand on Saturday.

It doesn't sound as though the injury is serious, so Freeman should be considered day-to-day. He's having a nice season at the dish, slashing .287/.382/.539 with a career-high 24 homers and 58 RBI.
Aug 21 - 7:01 PM

Freddie Freeman is absent from the Braves' lineup Sunday.
