Freddie Freeman had a cancerous mole surgically removed from his upper back during the All-Star break.
Freeman goes for regular checkups after his mother died of skin cancer in 2000. While abnormal cells were present, he said Friday that he's cancer-free. "They said that with your family history, just take it out, so that's what I did," said Freeman. "There were cancerous cells, so I got it just in time." Freeman has a few stitches in his back, but it didn't stop him from being in the lineup for the first game of the second half on Friday. Jul 15 - 7:37 PM

Freddie Freeman clobbered his 15th home run of the season as the Braves stunned Chris Sale and the White Sox 11-8 on Friday night in Chicago.

Freeman got the scoring started in this one with a solo homer off of Sale in the first inning. It was one of three home runs that the Braves would belt off of the left-hander, with Nick Markakis and Tyler Flowers also leaving the yard. Freeman has picked it up considerably after a slow start and is now hitting .285/.370/.509 with 15 homers and 33 RBI.
Jul 9 - 12:22 AM

Freddie Freeman had a nice night at the plate in Sunday's loss to the Marlins, going 2-for-3 with a double and a walk.

As a club, the Braves totaled just five hits on the night. Freeman has been on fire at the dish in recent weeks, and Sunday's two-hit performance raised his season slash to .292/.375/.516 to go with his 14 homers.
Jul 3 - 11:20 PM

Freddie Freeman went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run and two runs scored as the Braves jumped all over the Marlins 9-1 on Saturday.

Lucas Harrell, who hadn't pitched in the majors since 2014, was making the start for the Braves opposite phenom Jose Fernandez, so the smart money wasn't on a Braves rout. That's why they play the games, though, and Freeman contributed with his 14th home run of the season to go with two singles. Freeman batted .346/.426/.654 in June, and after Saturday's game the 26-year-old is hitting .289/.371/.511 overall.
Jul 2 - 7:04 PM

Freddie Freeman went 2-for-3 with an RBI triple and a run scored in Thursday's win over the Marlins.

The run-scoring triple in the third inning was surprisingly Freeman's fourth triple of the season, tying a single-season high he set in 2014. It was also his second triple in his last three games, oddly. Freeman's bat has remained one of the only constant bright spots for the Braves this year, as the first baseman is batting .285/.370/.502 with 13 homers, 29 RBI and 37 runs scored through 78 games.
Jul 1 - 1:06 AM

Freddie Freeman finished 3-for-5 with an RBI and a stolen base Friday against the Mets.

Freeman put the Braves ahead with an RBI double against Matt Harvey in the third inning and they never looked back. The 26-year-old hit for the cycle earlier this week against the Reds and has pulled his batting average up 30 points (from .242 to .272) since Sunday. Unfortunately, the lack of talent around him will continue to cap his upside in fantasy leagues.
Jun 17 - 11:04 PM

Freddie Freeman launched three hits Thursday including his 12th home run of the season Thursday in a win over the Reds.

He took Dan Straily deep for a two-run blast in the third inning and also contributed a pair of singles. Freeman has now logged three or more hits in three of his last four games. His average has leaped from .242 to .265 during that span. Freeman's numbers as a whole are still underwhelming, but the 26-year-old appears to have finally found his stroke after a trying first two months. It's a welcome sight for the Braves, who own MLB's worst record at 20-46.
Jun 16 - 7:53 PM

Freddie Freeman became the first player to hit for the cycle in the majors this year, finishing 4-for-7 on the night as the Braves bested the Reds in 13 innings.

Freeman doubled in the third, tripled in the fourth, homered in the sixth, then completed the cycle with a single in the 11th inning. The four hits boosted his line to .257/.349/.461 on the season. He has struggled this year in terms of batting average but now with 11 home runs he is pacing towards a career high in that category. His runs and RBI will lag all year due to the Braves' weak lineup. It was the first cycle for Atlanta since Mark Kotsay's in August 2008.
Jun 16 - 1:05 AM

Freddie Freeman went 3-for-5 and smashed his 10th home run of the season in Monday's loss to the Reds.

Freeman singled in a run in the first and plated two in the fifth with a long home run to right-center field. The dinger was his first in his last 11 contests, as the first baseman has struggled so far in June. Freeman is sporting a .250/.341/.435 batting line on the season.
Jun 13 - 11:04 PM

Freddie Freeman finished one-for-three with a walk and a strikeout on Saturday night versus Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers.

When a team is facing Clayton Kershaw not much can be expected from the offense and that was definitely the case tonight. Freeman's one hit and one walk was the best the Braves hitters could manage in the 4-0 shutout. Freeman has had a dull spring so far but his track record indicates he will hone his swing and deliver a sharper summer.
Jun 5 - 2:00 AM

Freddie Freeman slugged a walk-off homer in the bottom of the 11th inning in Wednesday's 5-4 win over the Braves.

Freeman had been 0-for-3 with a walk and three strikeouts prior to his game-winning blast, but reliever Derek Law hung a belt-high slider and the 26-year-old first baseman sent it into the right-center bleachers. It marked his ninth homer of the year. The flaccid nature of the Braves' offense hurts his fantasy value, but it's important to note that he's been far from stellar himself, hitting only .251/.339/.431. He's probably not a top-20 fantasy first baseman this year, if we're being honest.
Jun 1 - 11:39 PM

Freddie Freeman homered twice and knocked in four runs in Friday’s victory over the Phillies.

Freeman connected for a two-run blast off Aaron Nola in the third inning before adding another one off Brett Oberholtzer in the ninth. It was the seventh multi-homer game of his career. After getting off to a slow start, he’s now up to eight home runs overall to go along with a .272/.364/.483 batting line. Before Friday, his previous six homers were all solo shots. Obviously the lineup around him limits his upside in fantasy leagues.
May 20 - 10:49 PM

Freddie Freeman went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Wednesday's victory over the Phillies.

Freeman has come alive after a rough start to the season. He's gotten a hit in 15 of his last 18 games, and he has a 14-game on-base streak. The 26-year-old now has a .289/.391/.500 slash line with six homers. However, the poor hitters surrounding him are the main reasons why he only has 10 RBI on 33 base hits, so while lineup protection may not matter too much in terms of impacting his overall slash line, it negatively affects his fantasy value nonetheless.
May 11 - 9:50 PM

Freddie Freeman singled and belted a solo homer in Monday's loss to the Phillies.

His blast off of closer Jeanmar Gomez in the ninth inning cut the Phils' lead to one, but Gomez stranded the tying run at first base. Freeman took a while to get going but is now batting .375 with four longballs over his last 15 games.
May 10 - 9:48 PM

Freddie Freeman hit his fourth home run of the season in a loss to the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

Freeman finished 1-for-3 with a walk in the game. The homer, a solo blast, was his third in his last nine games. After finishing April on a tear, Freeman is batting .333 (7-for-21) in six May games. His overall line is up to .275/.378/.451.
