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.
