Braves | Five RBI for Freddie Freeman

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 23:09:55 -0700

Atlanta Braves 1B Freddie Freeman homered and drove in five runs Wednesday, July 27, in a 9-7 win over the Minnesota Twins.

Fantasy Tip: After a slow start Freeman has been on fire at the plate. With a line of .280-18-41, Freeman's RBI count is down, but compared to where he was at the start of the year people are genuinely happy. Freeman now belongs as a starting 1B in your fantasy format.

Braves | Freddie Freeman finally healthy

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 12:05:31 -0700

Atlanta Braves 1B Freddie Freeman (rib cage, back) said he is past the cracked left rib injury he sustained in a collision with Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich Sunday, May 29. He also had a cancerous mole removed from his back during the All-Star break that caused some concerns for Freeman.

"There's been a lot of mental aspects I've had to learn this year and continue to tell myself, 'You're fine, just be yourself," Freeman said. "For some reason, I've got to remember to tell myself because I've had some weird injuries that affects everything on my swing."

Fantasy Tip: Freeman is 7-for-39 since the All-Star break with a .410 slugging percentage, and he has just 36 RBI for the season. His supporting cast is a hindrance to his fantasy upside, and Freeman is nothing more than a low-end starter at first base. The talent is there to be more, and Freeman was drafted as a mid-tier option at the position, but the results have been mediocre. It doesn't project to improve in 2016, either.

Braves | Freddie Freeman has two hits

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 04:34:31 -0700

Atlanta Braves 1B Freddie Freeman picked up two hits Sunday, July 24, in a 7-2 loss to the Colorado Rockies.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman is showing no signs of the recent cancerous mole that was removed from him. In fact, Freeman's .275 batting average and .507 slugging percentage are much better than his stats earlier in the season. Play Freeman in your lineup without hesitation.

Braves | Freddie Freeman reeling since break

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 12:15:04 -0700

Atlanta Braves 1B Freddie Freeman (rib cage) is 2-for-23 (.087) in six games since the All-Star break, with one home run, one RBI, two walks and 13 strikeouts. He insisted on playing through a recent rib-cage injury that prevented him from taking batting practice, which may have hindered his production at the plate.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like Freeman is past the injury, but his struggles are a huge concern because his supporting cast aren't going to help his fantasy cause any. For the year, he sits with 45 runs, 17 home runs, 35 RBI and a .273/.360/.501 slash line. It isn't a complete disappointment, but given his preseason billing, more was expected.

Braves | Freddie Freeman ineffective vs. COL

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 15:17:08 -0700

Atlanta Braves 1B Freddie Freeman (back) struck out four times, stranded three runners and went 0-for-11 in the series against the Colorado Rockies.

Fantasy Tip: Freeman had a cancerous mole removed from his upper back. His mind may be on other things than baseball, but Freeman has come a long way at the plate from his bad start. The cancer should not play a big role in his hitting moving forward, but keep an eye on Freeman's luck at the plate.
