Latest Update Freddie Freeman hits 17th home run Sat Aug, 16, 06:15 AM
Has big-time power to all fields, thanks largely to an impressive frame, some plate discipline and a decent eye at the plate. Is also an adept fielder at first base.
Flaws: : Strikes out too much, so he could stand to shorten up his swing a little bit, especially in critical situations and when he is behind in the count.
Freeman has really turned up the heat in the month of August, slashing .392/.456/.627 with eight extra-base hits (2 HR), eight RBI and six runs scored over 51 at-bats. Although it is very unlikely he will reach 30 home runs (only 17 HR on the year) like many experts predicted for the Braves 24-year-old first baseman, his production is good enough to make him one of the better first baseman to own down the stretch.

Freeman is now hitting .294 with 75 runs, 16 home runs and 64 RBI on the year. Expectations were high for Freeman after his .319 23 home run 109 RBI output in 2013 that 2014 would be a big break out year particularly in the power department but he is currently on pace to fall short of his 2013 numbers. Freeman is one of the top first basemen in fantasy this season and at just 24 years old there is plenty of time for him to have that monster season most believe he is capable of having.

Freeman has been gotten worse in each month this season, as his wRC + (weighted runs created) has gone from 170 (April) to, 144 (May), to 137 (June), to 105 (July) and 51 in August. He'd only played four games in August before today's breakout, so that last number is pretty trivial. Let's hope he ends the season with a flurry of blows. Analyst: Spencer Silva
Although Freeman is hitting just .200 since returning from the All-Star break, he has now totaled two home runs, seven RBI and six runs scored in that stretch. Even with his recent struggles, Freeman is still slashing .285/.376/.482 with 15 home runs and 59 RBI on the season, keeping him on pace to go over 20 home runs for the fifth consecutive season.
