6/11/2014 9:37:00 AM
Description: Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman homered for the second time in three games Tuesday at Colorado.
Insight: Freeman has a line-drive rate of 34 percent, so while his BABIP of .317 is still above the league average he's actually been a bit unlucky. He's hit just .143 on grounders and .619 on line drives. The first baseman should be a .300 hitter in the long run, and he's also on pace for a career-high 28 homers.

Description: Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman is 5-for-9 with three homers among his five extra-base hits against Colorado starter Juan Nicasio.

Insight: Freeman is 5-for-8 (.625) with a double, triple, three home runs and seven RBI in their matchups. He's having another good season (.303, 9 HR, 28 RBI) and is a must-start on Saturday.
 
Hot5/19/2014 10:54:00 PM
Description: Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman homered for the second straight game Monday against Milwaukee.
Insight: Freeman hit 21-23 homers in each of the previous three years, but the 24-year-old has taken a step forward in the power department and already has nine home runs this year while hitting .317.
 
5/18/2014 6:00:00 PM
Description: Braves 1B Freddie Freeman had a productive outing Sunday against the Cardinals (3-for-3, HR, 3 RBI).
Insight: We've come to expect this type of production from Steady Freddie. The 24-year-old is hitting an impressive .314 this season with eight jacks and 27 RBI. He should be a lock for his second straight All-Star appearance.

Insight: Freeman continues to improve and through the first 26 games is batting .320 with six homers, 17 RBI and a career-high .965 OPS. Add in the wind blowing out tonight and you have a must-start candidate.
 
4/30/2014 12:17:00 PM
Description: Atlanta first baseman Freddie Freeman hasn't had much luck against Miami starter Nate Eovaldi.
Insight: He's collected only three hits against him in 17 previous at bats (.176 AVG). Freeman (.330, 6 HR, 17 RBI) is having a good season but this isn't a good matchup for him.
 
4/26/2014 1:38:00 PM

Insight: It's an issue Freeman has dealt with on and off throughout his career. He said he cleaned his eye lids out and should be back to normal by Friday. The issue hasn't affected Freeman's performance (.346, 5 HR, 14 RBI) so fantasy owners have no reason to be concerned.

Description: Atlanta first baseman Freddie Freeman is a career .242 hitter versus Phillies ace Cliff Lee and hasn't provided any power whatsoever against him.
