Freddie Freeman belted a three-run home run and added a walk in four plate appearances of Wednesday's win over the Marlins.
The home run was Freeman's 14th of the season but was just his first in the month of July after hitting 13 over the previous three months. It seems like every season "experts" are expecting a surge in Freeman's power totals but it appears he is on pace for another low to mid 20 home run season with a solid batting average. Still just 24 years old there is plenty of time for Freeman to find that power stroke fantasy owners believe he is capable of displaying. ANALYST: Jonathan Impemba
The home run was Freeman's 14th of the season to go with 56 RBI, 66 runs scored, and a slash line of .284/.375/.479. In comparison, Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo has 25 home runs 55 RBI and 68 runs scored.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Tigers are in discussions with Jordan Zimmermann.
There is nothing definite to this point, but reports have surfaced that Jordan Zimmermann is in "serious" discussions with the Tigers. Zimmermann would form a nice one-two punch with Justin Verlander atop the rotation in Detroit. Zimmermann was 13-10 in 2015 with a 3.66 ERA and 164 strikeouts in 201 2/3 innings pitched.
