Atlanta Braves first baseman, and El Modena alumni Freddie Freeman is expected to miss up to 10 weeks after fracturing his left wrist by being hit by a pitch against Toronto.
The loss is huge to the Braves seeing as though Freeman was playing some of the best ball of his career. Up till his injury Freeman was hitting .341 and was leading the majors with 14 home runs and a slugging percentage of .748. (via ESPN)
Freeman was selfless in his interview after the news broke saying, “The more disappointing fact is that we started playing good baseball as a team… I never play this game for myself.”
The focus now turns to the Braves front office and manager John Coppolella to find a “replacement” for Freeman, but as Coppolella said, “We couldn’t find anybody that could do what Freddie does… He was arguably the best player in the whole league.
