Freeman, who has a bone bruise in his right wrist, is eligible to come off the disabled list Friday, when the Braves' resume the season with a three-game series against the Chicago Cubs. He went on the disabled list retroactive to June 18 and has missed 23 games. If Hart is correct, he will miss at least two more weeks.
Assistant general manager John Coppolella said last week, "The hope is that he’s back the second half of the season, but it’s kind of a day-to-day thing. We can’t say for certain. I don’t see it going past the trade deadline (July 31). I could see it being as early as right after the break, the first game. I think it’s going to be somewhere in that two-week window. That’d be my guess."
