Freddie Freeman has been dealing with some dryness in his eyes. Freeman met with the team optometrist, who said he has some "abrasions in the whites of his eyes."
The condition is being treated with drops and a gel that Freeman puts into his eyes at night before he goes to sleep. Apparently he also had his eyes lids and tear ducts cleaned out which should get them producing tears and moisture to keep his eyes properly lubricated. With an off-day Thursday, Freeman says that he should receive enough consistent treatment and be ready to go for Friday's game.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Chris Carter went 2-for-4 with two RBI in the Astros 6-3 loss to the White Sox on Friday.
Carter has a six game hitting streak going which has helped raise his batting average from .157 to .185. Carter owners have to understand the type of player he is and know that while he has outstanding power there will be plenty of strikeouts and a low batting average. Those hoping for a repeat performance of 2014 should be reminded that he had 13 home runs and a .184 batting average heading into July before mashing 24 home runs over the final three months of the season.
