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.

Atlanta Braves 1B Freddie Freeman (oblique) was scheduled to be examined by a doctor on Tuesday, April 16. The first baseman seems to have moved past his displeasure with the fact that the team placed him on the DL without informing him first. The club's position is that sometimes players need to be protected from themselves.
Fantasy Tip: The results of the examination are still unclear, but there seems to be no issue with his recovery to this point, considering that he took light BP that day. Freeman may not need a rehab assignment before he returns. He's eligible for activation on Monday, April 22.

Atlanta Braves 1B Freddie Freeman (oblique) took swings for the first time Tuesday, April 16, and "felt fine." He's eligible to return from the disabled list Monday, April 22.
Fantasy Tip: It's unknown if Atlanta will have Freeman go on a short rehab assignment, but if he does, his return will be delayed a bit. Regardless, Freeman appears to be making a quick return, which will put a smile on his owners' faces.

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.

Freeman also reported to camp weighing 237 pounds, which is 11 pounds below what he weighed last season. He lost weight in the offseason working out with 2B Dan Uggla and following a lean-meat and fruit-and-vegetable-heavy diet. Freeman also thinks he has his eye situation under control with new contacts and lubricant for his eyes. He will wear custom-made clear sunglasses during games.
