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.
Insight: Freeman has struck out a dozen times against Lee, who will oppose Atlanta on Wednesday.
 
Hot4/13/2014 8:21:00 PM
Description: Atlanta first baseman Freddie Freeman drove in four runs Sunday against Washington.
Insight: Freeman has hit .442 with four doubles, four homers, 10 RBI, a 4/6 K/BB and 10 runs this season. He's well on his way to his first 30-homer season and should contend for NL MVP.
 
4/1/2014 10:57:00 PM
Description: Atlanta first baseman Freddie Freeman went 3-for-3 with two solo home runs Tuesday at Milwaukee.
Insight: Freeman hit a career-high .319 with 109 RBI, 89 runs and an .897 OPS last year and has blasted 21-23 homers in each of the last three seasons. This should be the year he gets up to 30.

Description: Atlanta first baseman Freddie Freeman exited Sunday's game against the Yankees with a thumb injury. SOURCE: David O'Brien, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Insight: It's just a bruise. Freeman (.319, 23 HR, 109 RBI) might sit out a few days as a precaution but we'd expect him to be ready in plenty of time for Opening Day. We have him at No. 8 in our latest first baseman rankings.
 
2/4/2014 8:00:00 PM
Description: According to MLB.com's Mark Bowman, Freddie Freeman's new contract will pay him $135 million over the next eight seasons.
Insight: Looks like Atlanta won't have to worry about first base for the next decade. While his $16.9 million annual salary is far from a bargain, if anyone deserved a new contract it was Freeman, who hit .319 with a career-high 109 RBI last season. Expect the 24-year-old to be equally productive in 2014.
 
2/4/2014 5:58:00 PM
Description: Freddie Freeman has agreed to a contract extension with Atlanta though terms of the deal have not yet been released.
Insight: Jon Morosi of Fox Sports hears the deal could be worth as much as $125 million over eight seasons. If that's the case, Freeman will be under Braves' control until 2021. Freeman (.319, 23 HR, 109 RBI) finished fifth in NL MVP voting last season and will be one of the most sought-after first basemen in fantasy heading into the 2014 campaign.

Description: Atlanta first baseman Freddie Freeman is getting a breather Monday against Milwaukee.

Insight: Freeman went 3-for-5 with one RBI Wednesday against the Mets and is batting .338 in August. He has hit .315 or better in four of five months this year and .291 in his worst month, so he has been very consistent.
 
7/31/2013 10:24:00 PM
Description: Atlanta first baseman Freddie Freeman had a pretty good day at the office Wednesday against the Rockies (4-for-4, two RBI).
Insight: That gives him six RBI in his last two games. One of Freeman's hits (an RBI single) came as part of a seven-run third inning. The Braves have now scored six or more runs in an inning in each of their last three games. They're the first team to do that since the Yankees accomplished the same feat in 2009.
 
7/30/2013 10:41:00 PM
Description: Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman hit a solo homer in the first inning and a three-run jack in the seventh Tuesday against the Rockies.
Insight: Freeman has been in a bit of a slump since the All-Star break, going 8-for-36 (.222) with 14 K in his first 11 games, so it's good to see him break out with a big game.
