Braves' Sam Freeman: Struggles after hot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman has allowed five runs with seven strikeouts over 9.2 innings in June.

The 30-year-old had a 1.38 ERA at the end of May but has struggled to retain that form in June. Freeman's 1.46 WHIP and low 1.75 K/BB illustrate his difficulty in keeping the bases clear. Freeman has still only allowed one home run this season, but his recent struggles are likely a better indicator for the rest of the season.

Braves' Sam Freeman: Pitching well in low-stress role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman has given up three runs (two earned) in 12 innings this season.

Since having his contract purchased from Triple-A Gwinnett in early May, the 29-year-old has 12 strikeouts across his eight appearances and has yet to surrender a home run. Freeman has pitched mostly in low-leverage situations thus far, but he could see an expanded role if he maintains his current 1.50 ERA, although his 1.33 WHIP isn't quite so favorable.

Braves' Sam Freeman: Contract purchased from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman had his contract purchased from Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

Dan Winkler was transferred to the 60-day DL to open up a roster spot for Freeman, who takes the place of recently demoted Matt Wisler. The 29-year-old had a 0.87 ERA and 1.07 WHIP across 10.1 innings (9 games) at Gwinnett before the promotion. He's seen success in prior major-league stints, but he most recently posted a 12.91 ERA across seven appearances (7.2 innings) with the Brewers last season. He'll be an option out of the Braves' bullpen for the time being, though it's unclear how long his major-league stint will last.

Braves' Sam Freeman: Fails to land roster spot out of spring training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman was reassigned to minor league camp Wednesday, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Freeman signed on with the Braves over the offseason with the hope of competing for a major league roster spot, but giving up six runs in just one inning of action certainly ended those hopes. The left-hander does have some past major league success to his name, however, so he could find his way back to Atlanta at some point during the regular season.

Braves' Sam Freeman: Signs minor league contract with Braves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman signed a minor league contract with the Braves on Friday, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports.

Freeman spent the bulk of the 2016 season with the Brewers' Triple-A affiliate in Colorado Springs, although his numbers weren't especially impressive. The lefty is only a year removed from a string of strong seasons out of the major league bullpens of both Texas and St. Louis, though, and given his strong strikeout track record (9.4 K/9 over the past two seasons), he could compete for a decent role in the Atlanta bullpen during spring training.
