Since the Atlanta Braves activated 1B Freddie Freeman from the Disabled List list with a strained oblique late last month, the slugger has been absolutely crushing the ball for fantasy baseball owners.
Freeman was on fire before heading to the DL, so it is nice to see him picking up right where he left off. In his last six games alone, Freeman has 10 hits including two doubles and one home run. He has also driven in seven runs over that stretch and has proved that the nagging midsection injury is behind him.
Freeman has raised his RBI total on the year to 18 in just 20 games. He has also quietly raised his average well above .300 (.319) and is having an All-Star fantasy season despite his minor DL hiccup.
The Braves are currently smashing the ball and are slugging .429 as a team. Freeman will get plenty of RBI opportunities with SS Andrelton Simmons hitting in front of him, so expect the big first baseman to rival his career numbers across the board.
Now that Freeman is back, he will once again be a top-five first baseman. He can hit home runs with the best of them and has some serious numbers left in his bat. If you have the Freeman on your roster at this point in the season, consider yourself lucky.
