Freddie Freeman went 2-for-4 with a home run in Saturday's loss to the Mets.

Freeman hit a solo shot off Mets starter Jacob deGrom in the sixth inning, the only run the Braves could muster against the right-hander. For Freeman, the dong was his 27th of the year, putting him in position to reach the 30-homer plateau for the second consecutive year with a strong finish. A fractured wrist stole a good portion of his season and has sapped some of his power, per Freeman, but in his 103 games he's been nothing short of terrific, batting .319/.417/.612.

Freddie Freeman had three hits -- including a three-run homer -- in Tuesday's win over the Nationals.

Freeman's blast off of Gio Gonzalez in the third inning put the Braves up 4-0 at the time and that wound up being more than enough. For a guy who admitted that his wrist still isn't 100 percent yet, Freeman sure is still a dangerous hitter. He's batting .378 with three home runs so far in September.

Freddie Freeman clobbered his 25th home run of the year as the Braves fell to the Marlins on Friday night.

Unfortunately, his solo shot off of Jose Urena in the fourth inning accounted for the entirety of the Braves' offense in the ballgame. He also singled and drew a walk in the contest, finishing the night 2-for-3. Freeman is now hitting a robust .319/.417/.617 with 25 bombs and 64 RBI.
Sep 8 - 10:55 PM

Freddie Freeman is in Monday's lineup against the Rangers.

Freeman was scheduled to have his left wrist examined when the Braves returned home on Monday and apparently they didn't find anything to be worried about. The 27-year-old admitted that his wrist is getting weaker as he continues to play and it shows in his lack of power of late. Fantasy owners will likely have to wait for 2018 to get him back to 100 percent.

Freddie Freeman will have his left wrist examined on Monday when the Braves return home.

The exam is considered precautionary, as Freeman and the team are confident the weakness he's feeling isn't being caused by anything being structurally wrong. "There's no pain," Freeman said. "I just have no strength." Freeman is hitting .294/.375/.520 in 53 games since returning from a fractured wrist, but he's hit only 10 homers and he's probably not going to feel 100 percent until spring training.
Sep 3 - 1:06 PM

Freddie Freeman feels like the wrist he broke in May is getting weaker as he continues to play.

"It feels like I'm swinging a wet newspaper," he said Saturday. Wet newspaper wouldn't seem to bode well for his power production, and if it gets bad enough, the Braves might decide to have him shut it down and get ready for 2018.
Sep 2 - 6:39 PM

Freddie Freeman went 2-for-5 with a home run, three RBI and two runs scored during Saturday's loss to the Cubs.

He also walked in the high-scoring ballgame. He homered off left-hander Jon Lester with a runner aboard in the third inning and drove in another run with a double in the eighth. Freeman's numbers are impressive despite spending six weeks on the disabled list earlier in the year. He has a .313 batting average with 24 home runs and 60 RBI in 339 plate appearances.
Sep 2 - 6:39 PM

Freddie Freeman went 1-for-4 with an RBI double in the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Phillies.

Freeman picked up an RBI double in the ninth inning as the Braves pulled away for a 5-2 win. In 86 games this season, he owns a .318/.415/.615 triple-slash with 22 homers and 55 RBI. His left wrist is still not completely healthy and has sapped some of his power in the second half, as he has just two home runs in the last three weeks.
Aug 30 - 8:42 PM

Freddie Freeman homered and doubled against the Phillies in the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader.

Freeman's wrist isn't back to full strength, so he hasn't been showing as much power of late. The homer was his second in three weeks, with the other one coming at Coors Field on Aug. 17.
Aug 30 - 3:23 PM

Freddie Freeman reached base three times, drove in a run and scored a run Tuesday against the Mariners.

Freeman admitted earlier Tuesday that his left wrist still isn't 100 percent and is affecting his power, and both of his hits Tuesday were singles. However, one of them plated a run, giving him 51 RBI over 80 games this season.
Aug 22 - 11:38 PM

Freddie Freeman conceded Tuesday that his left wrist is at "probably about 80-85 percent" strength.

Freeman has batted .309/.377/.527 since returning from the disabled list on July 4, but the 27-year-old first baseman is flashing less power than he did before fracturing the wrist in May. "It is obviously not 100 percent, but it’s good enough in my eyes," Freeman said Tuesday afternoon. "I talked to Dr. (Gary) Lourie the other day and he says it’s going to be a whole offseason (before it’s back to normal). I have lost a lot of strength. I’ve hit some balls that I thought were home runs and they’re not going."
Aug 22 - 7:02 PM

Freddie Freeman finished 3-for-5 with a double and two runs scored in the Braves' victory over the Reds on Sunday.

Freeman is working on a nine-game hitting streak and has registered five doubles and one home run in that span. The star first baseman is slashing .325/.420/.631 in 78 total games this season.
Aug 20 - 4:56 PM

Freddie Freeman finished 3-for-4 with two RBI, a run scored and a stolen base in Saturday's loss to the Cardinals.

Freeman was having a decent night already when he stepped to the plate as the winning run with the bases loaded in the ninth inning. He didn't provide any huge fireworks, but his two-run single closed the gap, and Freeman promptly stole second base to put the winning run in scoring position. He was left there, but it was still a very strong performance for the 27-year-old, who's now hitting .319/.422/.638 with 21 homers, 48 RBI, 56 runs scored and seven steals in 70 games this year.
Aug 12 - 11:38 PM

Freddie Freeman went 2-for-4 with a home run and four RBI as the Braves pulled away late in a 7-2 win over the Marlins on Saturday.

The game was scoreless into the sixth inning, and Freeman's RBI single knotted the score at 1-1 in the bottom of the sixth. He came around to score to give the Braves a lead, and he added on with a three-run dong in the seventh inning. The homer was his 20th of the year, giving him 45 RBI and 53 runs scored. The versatile corner infielder is batting a robust .317/.418/.642 in 65 games this year.
