      Braves' Freddie Freeman: Takes Some Cuts

      Freeman (wrist) took 30 "dry swings" and hit 25 balls off a tee Thursday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. "Nice to finally swing a bat with no pain after seven months," he said. Freeman's wrist problems date back to about June of 2015, so you'll want to track his health carefully during the walk-up months to the fresh season. He also has to deal with a mediocre Atlanta supporting cast; the Braves could easily have the worst offense in the National League.

      Wrist ailment has Braves 1B Freddie Freeman down Thursday

      A nagging wrist issue has Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman sidelined Thursday against visiting Washington. Considering Freeman is dealing with a small bone spur in his wrist, this isn't a surprising development. With the Braves well out of the playoff contention, it's fair to question if Freeman will return to the starting lineup this season. Nick Swisher will get the start at first base once again and hit third in the batting order.

      Braves 1B Freddie Freeman dealing with sore wrist

      Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman is out of the lineup Wednesday with a sore wrist, but is available off the bench, Kevin McAlpin of 680 The Fan reports. While Freeman did miss more than a month earlier this season with a wrist injury, it doesn't sound like the Braves are especially concerned with this setback, as manager Fredi Gonzalez said he expects Freeman to return for Friday's series opener in Miami. Nick Swisher will man first base and bat third in Freeman's absence.

      Braves 1B Freddie Freeman records two hits in win Friday

      Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman went 2 for 3 with a run in Friday's win over Philadelphia. Hampered by wrist and oblique injuries, 2015 has not been one to remember for Freeman yet, as the season winds down, he is doing a good job of reminding owners that he remains very adept at getting on base, boasting a .423 OBP since the beginning of the month. Though his .366 OBP on the season is a step down for his standards, it would still rank eighth among first basemen if he had enough at-bats to qualify.
