Braves' Freddie Freeman: Feeling better but still out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman (illness) has been feeling better over the last week, but he still needs to test negative for COVID-19 twice before being allowed to return to the field, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

The details regarding each individual player's battle with coronavirus haven't generally been made public. In Freeman's case, the implication from both his manager Brian Snitker and his wife Chelsea at the time he originally tested positive in early July was that his case was far from a mild one. While the news that he's recovering is undoubtedly positive, it remains to be seen when he'll get back on the field in any capacity, let alone when he'll be ready for game action.

Braves' Freddie Freeman: Lands on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Braves placed Freeman (illness) on the 10-day injured list Saturday.

Freeman was one of four Braves players revealed Saturday to have tested positive for COVID-19, but only he and reliever Will Smith will head to the IL for now. Of the four players to test positive, Freeman's health situation appears to be the most serious, as his wife, Chelsea, posted via her personal Instagram account that the four-time All-Star "has had body aches, headaches, chills and a high fever since Thursday." Per Mark Bowman of MLB.com, manager Brian Snitker revealed that Freeman was feeling "much stronger" Sunday, but the first baseman will need to be asymptomatic for at least 72 hours before he can take another test as he seeks the first of the two negative results he'll need to receive clearance to play. It's unclear at this point if Freeman will be back to full health when the Braves open their season July 23 or 24.

Braves' Freddie Freeman: Tests positive for COVID-19
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Brian Snitker said Saturday that Freeman tested positive for COVID-19, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

Freeman and three of his teammates tested positive for COVID-19. The 30-year-old is reportedly battling a fever, and Snitker said that it's "going to be awhile" before Freeman is able to report to camp, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

Braves' Freddie Freeman: Expected to play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman (personal) is expected to re-enter the Braves' Grapefruit League lineup Friday versus the Mets, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

Freeman left the team Tuesday to tend to a family issue, but he looks like he'll only need a few days to address the matter. The missed time shouldn't impact his availability to get himself ready for Opening Day.

Braves' Freddie Freeman: Scratched from lineup Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman was a late scratch from Tuesday's lineup for what the team said was a family matter, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

Ryan Casteel was inserted into the lineup batting third and playing first base. Freeman is expected to return to Wednesday's lineup against the Twins after attending to his family. The 30-year-old is likely to take a cautious approach during the rest of spring training after dealing with right elbow inflammation earlier this week.

Braves' Freddie Freeman: Back in starting lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman (elbow) is starting Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Phillies, playing first base and batting third.

Freeman experienced right elbow inflammation Tuesday that led to him missing nearly a week of game action, but the team was never overly concerned about the injury, and he'll return to the lineup Monday. While the team could use some caution with Freeman going forward this spring to prevent further injury, the 30-year-old will likely be good to go for most activities as spring training progresses.

Braves' Freddie Freeman: Could rejoin lineup Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman (elbow) could be in the lineup for Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Phillies if his workout Sunday goes as planned, 680 The Fan Atlanta reports.

The veteran first baseman was scratched from Tuesday's lineup with right elbow inflammation, but the injury may end up costing him only a week. The Braves never expressed significant concern over the issue, but it's nonetheless a great sign to see Freeman expected to make a quick return to the field.

February 26, 2020 09:20 PM
Braves' Freddie Freeman: Won't return until next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman (elbow) won't return to game action until next week, though general manager Alex Anthopoulos said Wednesday that the Braves aren't concerned about the issue, Gabe Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Freeman was scratched from the lineup Tuesday against the Twins with right elbow inflammation. The Braves' apparent optimism is shared by Freeman, who reportedly lobbied to return as soon as Thursday, but it's hard not to be at least a little bit worried about the issue. The veteran struggled with elbow problems late last season and underwent arthroscopic surgery to deal with the issue in October. It's possible the Braves are simply being overly cautious with their star first baseman early in camp, but the injury worries certainly add some risk to Freeman's draft stock this spring.

Braves' Freddie Freeman: Scratched Tuesday with elbow issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman was scratched from the lineup for Tuesday's Grapefruit League game against the Twins due to right elbow inflammation, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

Atlanta is labeling Freeman's removal as precautionary, so he can be viewed as day-to-day for now. Even so, it's not the most encouraging sign that he's already dealing with some discomfort in the same elbow for which he required arthroscopic surgery back in October. Non-roster invitee Yonder Alonso will man first base in Freeman's stead Tuesday.

Braves' Freddie Freeman: Starting in spring opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman (elbow) is in the lineup for Saturday's spring opener against the Orioles.

Freeman spent the offseason working his way back from elbow surgery, but he has completed his recovery and will take the field for the Braves' first exhibition game. As he usually does, he will man first base and hit third Saturday.

Braves' Freddie Freeman: Has arthroscopic elbow surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right elbow Wednesday.

The procedure cleaned up loose bodies and bone spur formations in Freeman's elbow. He'd been dealing with an elbow issue throughout September and didn't perform up to his usual standards in the playoffs, going 4-for-20 at the plate. He's expected to be ready for spring training, but the procedure does still add some slight injury risk to the veteran heading into his age-30 season.

Braves' Freddie Freeman: Back in action Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman (elbow) is starting at first base and batting third Friday against the Mets.

Freeman sat three of the past four games to receive treatment for a bone spur in his right elbow, but he's good to go for the beginning of the final series of the regular season. According to Gabe Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Braves want the veteran first baseman to play two games this weekend, but Freeman hopes to be in the lineup for all three contests.

Braves' Freddie Freeman: Trending toward return Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman (elbow) is trending toward rejoining the starting lineup Friday against the Mets, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports. "It's been very, very positive so far, so I've got a feeling when he shows up on Friday he's going to be really good to go," manager Brian Snitker said.

Freeman is in Atlanta receiving treatment on his bothersome right elbow, which has been causing him discomfort in recent weeks thanks to a bone spur. The first baseman is apparently feeling much better following a couple days of rest and rehab, suggesting he could be ready to return to action when he meets up with the Braves in New York later in the week. Austin Riley and Francisco Cervelli are candidates to see time at first base while Freeman remains sidelined.

Braves' Freddie Freeman: Out for Kansas City trip
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman will stay in Atlanta for further treatment on his injured right elbow and will miss the Braves' two-game series in Kansas City that begins Tuesday, Gabe Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Freeman was removed from Sunday's 4-1 loss to the Giants in the eighth inning after experiencing some discomfort in his elbow, which has been bothered by a bone spur in recent weeks. Since the Braves already have the division locked up, they'll err on the side of caution and withhold Freeman from action for a few days before he rejoins the big club in New York over the weekend for the season-ending series with the Mets. Though he'll head to New York, Freeman isn't guaranteed to rejoin the starting lineup before the postseason. Francisco Cervelli replaced Freeman at first base in Sunday's contest, but rookie Austin Riley could also be asked to make some appearances at the position while Freeman is out.

Braves' Freddie Freeman: Dealing with possible arm injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman was removed from Sunday's game against the Giants in the top of the eighth inning with an apparent right arm injury, Fox Sports South reports.

After receiving a maintenance day Saturday, Freeman checked back into the lineup at first base for the series finale, going 0-for-3 with an RBI before bowing out of the contest. Since Atlanta has already punched its ticket to the postseason, Freeman's late removal could've been for precautionary purposes, but expect the Braves to provide clarity on the matter.

Braves' Freddie Freeman: Expected to return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman is expected to be back in the lineup Sunday, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

Freeman was out of the lineup Saturday, one day after the team clinched the NL East. It appears as if the team will rotate days off for its stars throughout the remainder of the regular season. That could mean that more rest is in order for Freeman in the upcoming week.

September 21, 2019 03:12 PM
Braves' Freddie Freeman: Out of lineup Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Giants.

The Braves are going with a quasi "hangover" lineup after clinching their second consecutive division title Friday night. Austin Riley replaces Freeman at first base.

Braves' Freddie Freeman: Back in Saturday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman (elbow) is starting at first base and batting third Saturday against the Nationals, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

As expected, the Braves get their first baseman back after he left Friday's game with a sore right elbow. Freeman is tied for first in the majors with 117 RBI and his 38 homers are good for ninth best in MLB.

September 13, 2019 11:28 PM
Braves' Freddie Freeman: Could return to Saturday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman (elbow) may be back in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Nationals, Gabe Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Freeman was pulled from Friday's matchup with right elbow soreness, but the Braves don't sound too worried. The All-Star first baseman should have a chance to return to the starting lineup for Saturday's matchup.

September 13, 2019 08:28 PM
Braves' Freddie Freeman: Departs with elbow soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman was removed from Friday's game against the Nationals due to right elbow soreness.

The Braves announced that Freeman's removal was precautionary, but he's likely headed for further evaluation to ensure the issue isn't serious. Charlie Culberson replaced Freeman at first base.
