The organization saw logic in Freeman staying back, focusing on his treatment and getting rest rather than travel for two games. Freeman didn’t feel any irritation for “a couple days” after the last time his elbow barked. Sunday’s feeling was the same, he said, but he’s hopeful the rest and treatment will take care of it.
Still, not an issue the Braves want to deal with as the postseason approaches.
“It is frustrating it keeps popping up as quickly as it is right now,” Freeman said. “Hopefully these next four days will make it all go away and I can clear my head and have a nice series to end it before getting ready for the playoffs.”
