But Braves manager Brian Snitker said that after consulting with Andrew Hauser, the team’s director of player health and performance,Snitker also believes it’s a realistic goal for Freeman to return for the July 6 Nationals series.
“If everything goes well I don’t think that’s out of the question,” Snitker said. “I think that’s a distinct possibility.”
Freeman was one of the most productive hitters in the majors at the time of his injury. In 37 games this season he’s hit .341 with a .461 on-base percentage and .748 slugging percentage.
Braves slugger Freeman offered to move to third base to keep Matt Adams in the lineup at first base, and the Bravss are going to try it. (Video by David O'Brien)
