Braves' Sam Freeman: Excels with new team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman has a 2.70 ERA with 56 strikeouts across 56.2 innings this season with the Braves.

Freeman has not allowed a run in his last five appearances, and he's earned an incredible 1.11 ERA over the course of his last 27 games. After only appearing seven times for Milwaukee in 2016, he's found success with the Braves, recording 12 holds in 55 games. The 30-year-old is one of the better options out of the bullpen, and should be used in medium to high-leverage situations during the final games of the season.

Braves' Sam Freeman: Struggling since start of June
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman has a 3.78 ERA and 1.53 WHIP with 34 strikeouts over 33.1 innings this season.

The 30-year-old's season numbers aren't yet terrible, but it's a far cry from his hot start to the season. Freeman has posted a 5.31 ERA and 1.62 WHIP across 20.1 innings since the start of June, pitching himself out of high-leverage work in the process.

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.
