Braves' Freddie Freeman: Not starting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman isn't in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Nationals.

Freeman had gone 0-for-16 with a run, two walks and seven strikeouts in the last four games. Austin Riley will shift to first base while Ehire Adrianza starts at the hot corner.

Braves' Freddie Freeman: Belts seventh homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman went 4-for-5 with a double, a home run, three RBI and two runs in Wednesday's 10-0 rout of the Cubs.

He took Alec Mills deep in the sixth inning for his seventh homer of the year -- one of five long balls by Atlanta on the night. Freeman appears to have found his form at the plate, as he's slashed .316/.469/.605 with three home runs and eight RBI across his last 11 games.

Braves' Freddie Freeman: Smacks sixth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman went 1-for-4 with a walk, a three-run home run and a second run scored in Monday's 8-7 win over the Cubs.

The reigning NL MVP took Brandon Workman deep in the fifth inning for Atlanta's final runs of the game. Freeman's up to six homers and 13 RBI through 22 games but he's otherwise had little luck getting hits to fall in so far, slashing .208/.358/.468.

Braves' Freddie Freeman: Picks up Atlanta's lone hit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman went 1-for-3 with a single in Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Diamondbacks.

Freeman accounted for the Braves' only hit, as he knocked a single in the sixth inning, but it was a poor showing from the Braves' offense -- they went 1-for-21 as a team with two walks and six strikeouts. The star first baseman ended a two-game hitless streak but is having a down start to the year, hitting just .214 across 87 plate appearances.

Braves' Freddie Freeman: Ends brief power outage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a double, two walks, two runs and two RBI on Sunday in Atlanta's 13-4 win over the Cubs.

For the fourth straight game, Freeman drew exactly two free passes, but his contributions in the power department had been missing over the past week until he took Kyle Hendricks deep in the first inning. Freeman's fifth home run of the season was one of four in the top of the first for Atlanta, the first time the club had achieved that in the opening frame since May 2003.

Braves' Freddie Freeman: Third straight game with home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 7-6 loss to the Phillies.

Freeman's lone hit of the night came in the fifth when he tied the game on a changeup that just cleared the wall in center field. The 2020 NL MVP has just five hits in his first 30 at-bats, but four of those hits have been home runs, and he's found the long ball in each of his past three games while tallying six RBI during that span. Freeman's been keeping fantasy managers at ease with his power, and it should be only a matter of time before he gets hot and starts putting more balls into play aside from home runs.

Braves' Freddie Freeman: Hits another long ball
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run Saturday in a 5-4 victory over the Phillies.

Freeman turned a one-run deficit into a one-run lead in the first inning, drilling a 397-foot two-run homer to right field. He later produced the decisive run for the Braves with an RBI fielder's choice in the seventh frame. Though the reigning NL MVP is batting only .154 so far this season, he has racked up three home runs and six runs batted in. Nearly all of that production (two homers and five RBI) has come in his past two games.

Braves' Freddie Freeman: Launches second homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman went 1-for-4 with a walk and a two-run home run in Friday's 8-1 win over the Phillies.

He capped the scoring on the night by taking David Hale deep in the eighth inning. Freeman hasn't quite found his groove yet at the plate, going 3-for-22 (.136) through seven games, but two of his hits have left the yard and his 6:3 BB:K suggests there's no reason for concern with the reigning NL MVP.

Braves' Freddie Freeman: Clubs first homer Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's loss to the Nationals.

The first baseman launched one of four solo homers off Max Scherzer on the afternoon, taking the veteran right-hander deep in the first inning. Freeman's blast was his first hit this season, but there's little reason for concern with a player who hasn't posted an OPS below .893 since 2015.

Braves' Freddie Freeman: Strikeouts up in spring training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Through 11 Grapefruit League games, Freeman has gone 3-for-23 with three singles and a 6:7 BB:K.

Freeman's 24.1 percent strikeout rate so far this spring is well above his marks from any of the past four seasons, but at this point, the sample is probably too small for fantasy managers to alter expectations for him as Opening Day approaches. The 31-year-old overcame a bout with COVID-19 last summer to take home MVP honors in 2020, so he's probably deserving of some benefit of the doubt for his lackluster start to the spring. Projected to hit third in an Atlanta lineup teeming with talent, Freeman looks to be a fairly safe foundational pick in the first two rounds of fantasy drafts.

Braves' Freddie Freeman: Making spring debut Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman will make his spring debut in Friday's exhibition game against the Twins.

Freeman's arrival at camp was delayed due to the birth of his child, but he joined Atlanta last weekend and is ready to see his first action of the spring. Freeman, the reigning NL MVP, said Tuesday that he anticipates hitting third in 2021, and he will do just that Friday.

Braves' Freddie Freeman: Likely to hit third in 2021
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman said Tuesday that he's tentatively planning on opening the 2021 season as the Braves' No. 3 hitter, Gabe Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Freeman started out last season in the three hole, but he ultimately moved into the No. 2 spot for his final 17 starts of the abbreviated campaign. The first baseman posted a monstrous 1.202 OPS as the No. 2 hitter compared to a .982 OPS batting third, but that difference can probably be chalked up to a small sample of plate appearances more than anything else. Whatever spot he occupies, Freeman should be an elite source of counting stats in a potent Braves lineup while also giving fantasy managers a solid foundation in both batting average and on-base percentage. Like many established stars around the league, Freeman is being eased into game action this spring, with his Grapefruit League debut coming Friday against the Twins, according to Mark Bowman of MLB.com.

Braves' Freddie Freeman: Reports to camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman has arrived in Florida and should begin on-field workouts early this week once he clears intake testing, Gabriel Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

The first baseman got a delayed start to camp after his wife gave birth last weekend, but there are no worries about him being ready for Opening Day. Freeman is coming off an MVP campaign, and with free agency potentially looming next offseason, he figures to be locked in from the jump.

Braves' Freddie Freeman: Not yet in camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman has yet to arrive at camp for Atlanta after his wife gave birth to their third child Sunday, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

"Not a big deal at all," manager Brian Snitker said. "Most of the time, he gets hot the first 10 days then gets bored for 10 days and gets it back going. Not worried about him at all. I'll be honest with you, he doesn't need to be here." Freeman, who is heading into the final season of his current contract, is expected to report later this week and will then need a couple days to get through the league's COVID-19 protocols before he'll be able to get on the field, leaving him plenty of time to prepare for the regular season.

Braves' Freddie Freeman: Could hit third
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Brian Snitker told reporters Freeman could bat third this season, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

Freeman split time between the second and third spot in the Braves' lineup last season, hitting third on 32 occasions and second 26 times. Looking ahead to the 2021 campaign, Snitker reasoned that with currently no designated hitter in the National League, slotting Freeman into the three hole would allow him more RBI chances.

Braves' Freddie Freeman: Named NL MVP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman was named the 2020 National League Most Valuable Player on Thursday.

Freeman is Atlanta's first MVP since 1999 as he received 28 of 30 first-place votes, while Mookie Betts received the other two votes and finished in second in the voting. Freeman appeared in all 60 games during the shortened 2020 season, slashing .341/.462/.640 with 13 home runs, 53 RBI, 45 walks and 37 strikeouts.

Braves' Freddie Freeman: Drives in two runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman went 2-for-5 with a double, one run and two RBI during Thursday's win over the Dodgers in Game 4 of the NLCS.

The veteran first baseman gave the Braves a 2-1 lead during the sixth inning with an RBI double off Clayton Kershaw, and he brought home an insurance run during eighth with an RBI single. Freeman is in the midst of a five-game hit streak, going 8-for-18 with two homers, one double, five runs, six RBI and three walks during that stretch.

Braves' Freddie Freeman: Feeling good Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman feels good after being hit in the elbow by a pitch Tuesday and is starting Game 3 of the NLCS against the Dodgers on Wednesday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

Freeman was hit by a pitch on his right elbow, but manager Brian Snitker said that his star player felt good Wednesday. He received treatment from the training staff overnight and will play first base and bat second for Wednesday's contest.

Braves' Freddie Freeman: Opens scoring with homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman went 1-for-4 with a walk and a solo homer in Monday's NLCS Game 1 win against the Dodgers.

Freeman opened the scoring in the top of the first, taking Walker Buehler deep. The homer was his third in 20 career postseason games. He's hitting just .182 in six playoff games this season, though his six walks give him a strong .379 on-base percentage.

Braves' Freddie Freeman: Big impact off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman went 1-for-1 with a two-run home run and a walk in Friday's 8-7 extra-innings win over the Red Sox.

Freeman pinch hit for Tyler Flowers in the ninth inning and drew a walk, but couldn't come around to break the tie. In the 11th, he took matters into his own hands with a walkoff two-run shot off Red Sox reliever Jeffrey Springs. That was Freeman's 13th homer of the year, to go with 53 RBI, 50 runs scored, two stolen bases and a .341/.461/.644 slash line through 58 games.
