Freeman went 1-for-1 with a solo homer in Wednesday's loss to the Red Sox. Freeman went deep in the bottom of the eighth inning in his lone at-bat of the game to put the Braves up 8-7, though the Red Sox would respond with two runs of their own to claim the victory. While the 28-year-old first baseman has cooled off at the dish over the past two weeks, he's still hitting an impressive .307/.388/.507 with 21 homers and eight stolen bases on the season.
Freeman is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Red Sox. It appears Freeman is receiving some maintenance time with the Braves playing a day game after a night game, allowing Lucas Duda to check into the lineup at first base. Freeman's bid for the NL MVP award has lost some steam over the past two weeks, with the 28-year-old slashing just .157/.228/.216 across his last 13 starts.
Freeman went 2-for-4 with a triple, three RBI and a run scored in Thursday's 5-4 loss to the Cubs. Freeman singled in a run during the third inning before knocking a two-run triple in the fifth. The performance is nothing out of the ordinary for the 28-year-old, who now owns a terrific .311/.394/.512 line and 81 RBI in 591 plate appearances.
Freeman went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two RBI in the second half of Monday's doubleheader against Miami. Freeman singled home a run in the fifth inning, and he padded the lead in the seventh by slugging a solo homer over the fence in right field. The 28-year-old has collected a base knock in nine of his previous 10 games, although he's recorded just one home run over that span. He sits with a .319/.398/.530 slash line and a .928 OPS through 117 games in 2018.
Freeman went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's win over the Marlins. It was his 18th homer of the year but just his third in July, although Freeman's still maintained value on the month with a .299/.351/.494 slash line, 12 runs and 13 RBI in 22 games. Given his red-hot first half, don't be surprised if Freeman picks up the pace again in August.
