FANTASY BASEBALL NEWS: FREDDIE FREEMAN (WRIST) TAKES BP

Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman took batting practice on Wednesday as he checked off another box in his comeback from wrist surgery.  No complications were reported by Freeman but he is still a ways off from facing pitching.  He is expected to still be ready to go for Opening Day. 

Analysis:  Freeman is a guy we like on paper but not in fantasy baseball this season due to the utter lack of protection in the Braves lineup.  Opposing pitchers have no reason to throw to Freeman given the lack of bats around him and that could result in a second straight lackluster campaign like we saw in 2015.  Ideally Freeman works best as a UTIL or CI bat.
