Latest Update Freeman scores twice in losing effort Sat Jul, 26, 05:27 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 registered his first multi-hit performance of the second half on Friday night, but is now 4-for-30 with two extra-base hits since returning from the All-Star break. Despite his recent struggles overall Freeman is having himself a solid season, slashing .283/.373/.480 with 14 home runs and 56 RBI, although it appears we will have to wait at least one more season before he reaches the 30 home run plateau.

The home run was Freeman's 14th of the season but was just his first in the month of July after hitting 13 over the previous three months. It seems like every season "experts" are expecting a surge in Freeman's power totals but it appears he is on pace for another low to mid 20 home run season with a solid batting average. Still just 24 years old there is plenty of time for Freeman to find that power stroke fantasy owners believe he is capable of displaying. Analyst: Jonathan ImpembaMore Experts..
Freeman continues to swing a hot stick this month as he added his fourth double in 10 July games to give him 28 on the season, which is tied with Nats Denard Span for fourth most in MLB. He has at least one hit in nine of his 10 games this month with five multi-hit games for a .375 average over that span (15-for-40).Analyst: Michael Pichan
Freeman has mashed Mets pitching as Thursday's double was his 12 extra-base hit to go with 21 RBI over his last 19 games against their divisional foes. The Braves first baseman now has at least one hit in eight of his last nine games with five of them being of the multi-hit variety as he has raised his season average by almost 10 points over that span to .299 on the year.Analyst: Michael Pichan
