Freddie Freeman has been diagnosed with a fractured left wrist and will miss at least eight weeks.

Freeman won't require surgery, but he'll be in a cast for the next month or so and will then have to begin rebuilding strength in his left arm. The star first baseman suffered the left wrist fracture Wednesday when he was struck by a high-and-tight Aaron Loup fastball. Atlanta does not have a good internal replacement for Freeman, who was batting .341/.461/.748 with 14 home runs and 25 RBI through 37 games this season. Nick Markakis could get some run at first base. Rio Ruiz and Johan Camargo are some other options.

Freddie Freeman went 0-for-2 with a pair of walks Friday against the Cardinals.

Freeman’s eight-game hitting streak came to an end, but he has now reached base safely in 12 straight. His .479 on-base percentage is second in the majors. Only Bryce Harper (.504 OBP) checks in higher. He’s making a strong case to be considered the No. 2 fantasy first baseman behind Paul Goldschmidt.

Anthony Rizzo is probably a lock to get the nod, but based on the results of the last year and a month, Freeman should be the NL's starting first baseman in this year's All-Star Game. He's hitting a remarkable .378/.491/.811 at the moment.
May 3 - 12:17 AM

The 27-year-old already has eight home runs this season, though he has just 12 RBI to show for it. He’s batting .368/.478/.776 with just as many walks (16) as strikeouts (16) so far.
Apr 29 - 12:59 AM

Freddie Freeman clubbed his seventh homer of the season on Friday but it wasn't enough to lead his club to victory over the Phillies.
