Atlanta Braves 1B Freddie Freeman Injures Knee During Spring Drill

By Eric Haftel

Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman is expected to be out at least a week after injuring his right knee during a drill.

Freeman’s kneecap popped out of place Tuesday, while he was attempting to field a low throw. Freeman had a similar injury in the minors two years ago. He also missed about a week that time.

Freeman was the runner-up for NL Rookie of the Year after hitting .282 with 21 homers and 76 RBIs.

This shouldn’t be to big of an issue as the Braves have just started spring. Expect Freeman to return this season and have an even better season then last.

Freeman is an up and coming player and we have yet to see the best from him.
