Braves | Freddie Freeman to start rehab assignment

Atlanta Braves 1B Freddie Freeman (oblique) will work out with Triple-A Gwinnett Thursday, April 18, and then play three games this weekend. If he doesn't have any setbacks, he could be activated from the disabled list Monday, April 22.

Fantasy Tip: The news that Freeman will have a very short minor league rehab stint speaks to the fact that his oblique injury wasn't that serious to begin with. This is very positive for his owners, who should expect to have him back at some point next week.
