Freddie Freeman (oblique) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Gwinnett on Sunday.

He went 0-for-7 with two strikeouts earlier this week in a rehab assignment for the Gulf Coast Braves. Freeman is slated to return Wednesday against the Padres. That's the first day he's eligible to come off the disabled list.
Aug 15 - 10:00 PM

Freddie Freeman (oblique) began a rehab assignment with the Gulf Coast League Braves on Thursday.

Freeman played five innings in his first game and will increase his activity over the next few days. Assuming he doesn't have any setbacks, the Braves expect him to be activated on August 19, the first day he's eligible. Freeman has played just 10 games since mid-June due to wrist and oblique ailments.
Aug 14 - 8:44 AM

Braves placed 1B Freddie Freeman on the 15-day disabled list with a right oblique strain.

A tough break for Freeman, who just recently returned from a right wrist contusion. He suffered the injury during Monday's game and will now require another extended absence. Chris Johnson and Joey Terdoslavich figure to fill in at first base.
Aug 4 - 2:30 PM

Freddie Freeman was pulled from Monday's game versus the Giants with a right oblique strain.

Well, at least he didn't aggravate his wrist injury. The Braves are calling Freeman day-to-day for the time being, but, as we all know, oblique injuries usually wind up leading to stints on the disabled list. Chris Johnson would be poised to take over at first base if Freeman misses significant time.
Aug 3 - 9:13 PM

Freddie Freeman left Monday's game against the Giants with an undisclosed injury.

He didn't suffer an obvious injury but was replaced at first base by Chris Johnson in the top of the fifth inning. The worry has to be that Freeman re-injured his right wrist, but the Braves should offer more on his status later Monday.
Aug 3 - 8:39 PM

Freddie Freeman belted his 14th home run of the season in a losing effort against the Phillies on Friday.

The Phillies jumped out to an early 9-0 lead in this one, and Freeman's two-run shot in the eighth merely made it a 9-3 ballgame. He also singled in the contest, finishing the night 2-for-4 and raising his season slash to .288/.354/.509 to go along with 14 bombs and 45 RBI.
Jul 31 - 10:30 PM

Freddie Freeman went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run on Tuesday as the Braves lost 7-3 to the Orioles.

Freeman, playing in his fourth game since being activated from the disabled list, staked the Braves to a 2-0 lead when he drilled a two-run home run off of Ubaldo Jimenez in the first inning. He's now 2-for-14 since being activated, but still owns a terrific .291/.359/.511 batting line along with 13 home runs and 43 RBI.
Jul 28 - 10:17 PM

Braves activated 1B Freddie Freeman from the 15-day disabled list.

Freeman has been sidelined since June 18 due to a bone bruise in his wrist, but the club apparently feels that he's ready to return without a lengthy minor league rehab assignment. Before hitting the DL, the 25-year-old slugger was hitting .299/.367/.520 with 12 homers and 41 RBI in 66 games.
Jul 25 - 3:14 PM

Freddie Freeman (wrist) is expected to travel to Florida on Wednesday for 2-3 more days of working out.

If that all goes well, he should then be cleared for a minor league rehab assignment. David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal Constitution suspects that Freeman, who has been out since June 18 with a bone bruise in his wrist, could return to the Braves' active roster late next week in Philadelphia.
Jul 21 - 4:27 PM

Freddie Freeman (wrist) could begin a rehab assignment in the next day or two.

A recent MRI showed that Freeman still has fluid in his ailing right wrist, but the first baseman hit off a tee and took soft-toss Monday with no issues. He'll surely need to take regular batting practice before being cleared for game action, but it sounds like that should happen soon. A return before the end of the month looks possible.
Jul 20 - 4:34 PM

An MRI showed that fluid still remains in Freddie Freeman's right wrist.

Freeman was still able to take 30 dry swings on Sunday with 50-75 percent intensity, but obviously he's not going to be able to begin a rehab assignment on Sunday or Monday as previously hoped. He'll be re-evaluated later Sunday and there could be more know about a potential timetable for Freeman at that time.
Jul 19 - 3:01 PM

Freddie Freeman (wrist) could begin a rehab assignment on Sunday or Monday.

He's still likely at least 10 days away from returning, but this would qualify as good news since just last week it was looking like Freeman might not be back by the first week of August. The first baseman has been on the shelf for the last month with a right wrist issue but finally appears to have made real progress.
Jul 17 - 4:50 PM

Braves GM John Hart said Wednesday that Freddie Freeman (wrist) might not be back by the first week of August.

His wrist injury simply isn't healing as quickly as the Braves were hoping. Freeman has been out since June 18 and isn't close to beginning a minor league rehab assignment. Kelly Johnson and Chris Johnson have been splitting time at first base for the Braves.
