Freddie Freeman went 3-for-5 with two doubles and two runs scored during the Braves' 3-0 win over the Nationals on Thursday.
While he's usually more of the run-producer, Freeman played the role of the table-setter in this one as he put himself on base three times and into scoring position twice so that Chris Johnson could drive him home. It was his third multi-hit performance in his last five games and he's now slashing .282/.373/.495 on the year. The consistency at the plate he shows at just 24-years-old is extremely impressive and it looks like he's only going to get better as he nears his physical prime. Continue to view him as a top first-baseman and if you don't own him in a keeper league, trade for him now.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.
