Braves | Freddie Freeman placed on disabled list
The Atlanta Braves have placed 1B Freddie Freeman (oblique) on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained right oblique muscle. He had played through discomfort through the first five games and was the on-deck batter when OF Justin Upton hit a walkoff homer against the Chicago Cubs Saturday, April 6. However, the team decided to place Freeman on the DL after he jumped in pain when trainer Jeff Porter touched the affected area following the game.
Fantasy Tip: Freeman was unhappy with the decision to be placed on the DL and claimed he could have continued to play through the pain. 3B Chris Johnson will move across the diamond to play first base in his absence, with INF Juan Francisco being used regularly at third base.
