Update: CBSSports.com's Jon Heyman reports that the Braves have agreed to terms with first baseman Freddie Freeman on a contract extension. Freeman had been eligible for arbitration.
Eight years and $125 million are the numbers being tossed about. When the contract runs out, if the eight years is accurate, Freeman will still be young enough to get another big deal (he'll be 31). Freeman, one of the best young hitters in the game, a string of .300-25-100 seasons could certainly be on the horizon for Freeman.ANALYST: Ray Flowers
Wilson Ramos went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in the Nationals 2-1 win over the Cubs on Monday.
Ramos hit his third home run of the season on Monday to go with a .285 average, 13 runs and 21 RBI. Health has been Ramos’s biggest hindrance so far in his career as he has appeared in more than 100 games just once since he entered the league in 2010 but that has not stopped the production as he has hit 10+ home runs three times since 2011 and boasts a per 162 average of 22 home runs and 87 RBI which would make him one of the top offensive catchers in baseball. Ramos owners should keep their fingers crossed that this is the year he plays a full season as they will likely end up with one of the top catchers in fantasy. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba
