Freddie Freeman went 3-for-4 with two doubles, a run socred and a walk during the Braves' 6-4 loss to the Dodgers on Thursday.
Freeman is now hitting .294 with 75 runs, 16 home runs and 64 RBI on the year. Expectations were high for Freeman after his .319 23 home run 109 RBI output in 2013 that 2014 would be a big break out year particularly in the power department but he is currently on pace to fall short of his 2013 numbers. Freeman is one of the top first basemen in fantasy this season and at just 24 years old there is plenty of time for him to have that monster season most believe he is capable of having.

Marc Krauss went 1-for-4 with a solo home run on Thursday in Toronto.
Krauss is hitting only .150 with a .350 slugging percentage after launching his first home run of the season. It was just his seventh game of the season, but there’s no doubt he’ll need to cut down on the strikeouts if he’s ever going to be able to showcase the decent pop he has. The left-handed hitter was called up from AAA to try and infuse some offense in Anaheim and was slugging .639 over his past 10 games. With Matt Joyce really struggling, expect Krauss to steal some of his at-bats over the next few weeks. Analysis: Kevin Luchansky
