FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: MORE WRIST TROUBLE FOR FREDDIE FREEMAN

Well then.  Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman was forced out of the team's exhibition game Friday with soreness in the right wrist that dogged him for almost all of 2015.  Freeman had has a few cortisone shots in the wrist going back to last season and the fact it is still apparently an issue for him this spring is a very bad sign.  We have already written a BUST post on Freeman that had nothing to do with health as the Braves have zero support for him in the lineup which will hurt his offensive numbers but now the wrist becomes the central theme on the guy.  While Freeman is a solid player, he was only a UTIL or CI guy in our opinion as opposing pitchers won't give him anything to hit given the lack of support in the lineup.  He will head for some likely testing on the wrist but this is not what you want to be discussing with the season fast approaching.  Knock Freeman down your cheat sheets even more then he already has been dropped.
