Freddie Freeman was almost all three's Sunday as he went 3-for-3 with a home run, three RBI, and two runs scored to power the Braves past the Cardinals 6-5.
Raise your hand if you think Freddie Freeman is overpaid now? The Braves franchise first baseman won't turn 25-years old until the 12th of September, but in the meantime he continues to be arguably the most consistent player on the team as he is batting .314 (50-for-159) with eight home runs, 27 RBI, 25 runs scored, and 18 walks to 27 strikeouts which has helped him reach a near .400 OBP through 42 games played this season.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Miguel Castro will open the season in the majors.
Castro flew under the radar in the minors last season, but is making the rare jump from A-Ball to the majors. This is thanks to his (likely) temporary move to the bullpen for the Spring, which enabled his stuff to tick up a bit in shorter outings. He's likely next in line to receive saves should Brett Cecil fail, and the 20-year old is worth keeping an eye on. Analysis: Ben Diamond
