Braves' Sam Freeman: Struggles continue in loss to Brewers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman gave up a run on two hits and two walks over two-thirds of an innings while striking out one in Sunday's loss to the Brewers.

The run came on a solo shot by Jesus Aguilar, and Freeman was lucky to escape the outing with as little damage to his ERA as he did. The left-hander has a woeful 7.53 ERA, 1.60 WHIP and 16:9 K:BB in 14.1 innings since the beginning of June, and he'll continue to see action in low-leverage spots until he proves he can be entrusted with more critical duties.

Braves' Sam Freeman: Will have workload scaled back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman will have his usage scaled back after pitching in 14 of the Braves' first 21 games this season, Gabriel Burns of The Atlanta-Journal Constitution reports.

He's only thrown 9.2 innings in those appearances, filling the role of lefty specialist, but fatigue is still beginning to show -- Freeman's been charged with six runs (five earned) in just one-third of an inning over his last two games including a rough outing Monday, and his 8:10 K:BB on the season is very poor. The Braves do have other southpaw relievers available, namely A.J. Minter and Jesse Biddle, so expect Freeman to get some time to rest and recover before manager Brian Snitker calls his name again.

Braves' Sam Freeman: Notches first hold of 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman was credited with a hold after striking out the lone batter he faced in Wednesday's 7-1 win over the Nationals.

With Ryan Zimmerman at the dish with two outs and the bases loaded in the bottom of the sixth inning, Freeman was called upon from the bullpen to clean up the mess created by Mike Foltynewicz and Peter Moylan. Despite having been used the previous two days, Freeman showed no signs of fatigue, battling Zimmerman to a 3-2 count before getting a called strike three to end the threat. With the Braves off the schedule Thursday, Freeman will pick up some rest and should be ready to handle high-leverage work during the team's three-game series in Colorado over the weekend.

Braves' Sam Freeman: Re-ups with Braves, avoids arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman and the Braves avoided arbitration by agreeing on a one-year, $1.075 million contract Thursday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

Freeman will return to the Atlanta in 2018 after compiling a respectable 2.55 ERA and 59 strikeouts across 60 innings of relief last season. The 30-year-old groundball pitcher should reprise his role in the Braves' bullpen next season, though given his middle-relief role and high propensity to issue walks, he doesn't figure to hold much fantasy value.

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.
