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
Mike Scott will not play Saturday.
Scott has shed his walking boot, but is still a couple of practices away from returning to the floor in a game. His sprained left big toe, which he suffered in a game on March 11 against the Nuggests, is still giving him trouble and he is probably a week or so away from joining the team on the court.

Paul George (leg) ruled out for Sunday.
He has not been cleared by the team for game action, so despite his desire to play again before the regular season is done, he will have to miss some more action. Consider him day-to-day for now. Until he returns to action, he is worthless for fantasy purposes. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson
