Braves' Freddie Freeman: Plays catch Monday

Freeman (wrist) was seen playing catch on the field before Monday's game against the Giants, Kevin McAlpin of 680 The Fan reports.

This is the encouraging news, as it's the first sign of Freeman resuming any sort of baseball activity since landing on the disabled list in mid-May. If his original eight-week timetable holds true, the 27-year-old will return to the Braves sometime shortly after the All-Star break. In the meantime, Matt Adams will continue to fill in at first base.
