by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2014) Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman clubbed another home run Friday against the Mets.

Freeman didn't get going until late in the game, but managed to make a big impact. With one man on base in the eighth, Freeman homered on an 83 mph changeup from Gonzalez Germen. He also added a double in the ninth inning.

Freeman finished 2 for 5, with one run and two RBI.

Freeman wasted no time getting to work against Washington. He hit a sacrifice fly in the first inning, and followed that up with a two-run homer in the second. He was later hit by a pitch, and doubled in another run.

Freeman finished 2 for 3, with two runs scored and four RBI.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/5/2014) Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman couldn't be put away Saturday, going 2 for 2 with one run and three walks in his team's 6-2 win over the Nationals.

Freeman has been an on-base machine in the early-going, recording seven hits in 15 at-bats while also drawing six walks. He's also hit for power, recording one double Saturday to go with two homers from earlier in the week. Freeman is well on his way to posting similar numbers to his breakout 2013 campaign.


Freddie Freeman homers twice in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/1/2014) Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman bounced back from a hitless debut in a big way Tuesday socking two home runs to lead the team to a 5-2 win over the Brewers.

Freeman reached base four times, after going 0 for 4 in the opener. He hit a pair of solo home runs, in the sixth and eighth innings, and added a single as he finished the game 3 for 3 with two runs and two RBI.

Freeman signed a massive extension this offseason, and is off to a good start in his attempt to live up to it.


Freddie Freeman goes hitless in return to lineup Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/19/2014) Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman went 0 for 3 in his return to the lineup Wednesday as the Braves fell to the Yankees, 7-0.

Freeman left Sunday's game early with a left thumb contusion but just needed a few days of rest to get back on the field. "It seems like I hurt that thing every year," Freeman told MLB.com before Wednesday's game. "So it just swells up easier than normal when I get hit there. It's still swelled up a little bit. But I've already gripped a bat and swung it."

Freeman is 12 for 38 with one home run this spring.

Braves, Freddie Freeman agree to eight-year, $135-million deal


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/4/2014) The Braves and first baseman Freddie Freeman have agreed to an eight-year contract worth $135 million, MLB.com reports.

News of the two sides agreeing to an extension broke earlier Tuesday and the initial figures had the deal in the $100-million range, but the actual total ends up being a fair amount more than that. An eight-year deal keeps Freeman in Atlanta through 2021, when he'll be 32 years old.

Freeman has spent three seasons and change with the Braves, hitting .285/.358/.466 with 68 home runs and 280 RBI in 1,686 at-bats. He had his best statistical season in 2013, when he hit .319/.396/.501 with 23 home runs and 109 RBI in 551 at-bats.


Report: Freddie Freeman's extension in $100 million range


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/4/2014) The Braves extension with first baseman Freddie Freeman will be in the $100 million range, according to FoxSports.com.

Freeman was set to go to arbitration with the club, but avoided it by coming to a multi-year agreement. One source told FoxSports.com the deal could wind up being eight-years, $125 million. It was initially unclear whether the extension would buy out his remaining arbitration-eligible seasons, or if it would cover some of his free-agent years. If the deal is worth close to $100 million, it would surely buy out a few seasons of Freeman's free agency. Freeman is under team control through 2016. 


Braves, Freddie Freeman agree to extension


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/4/2014) The Braves have agreed to an extension with Freddie Freeman, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Report: Braves, Freddie Freeman close to multi-year deal


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/4/2014) The Braves are getting close to a multi-year extension with first baseman Freddie Freeman, according to FoxSports.com.

The team signed Jason Heyward to a two-year extension Tuesday, and are looking to lock up Freeman as well. It's unclear if the extension would cover Freeman's remaining arbitration seasons, like Heyward's deal, or if it would buy out some of his free-agent years. Freeman broke out last season, hitting .319/.396/.501 in 551 at-bats.


Frank Wren clarifies Braves file and trial policy


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/4/2014) Braves general manager Frank Wren clarified the team's file and trial policy following the team handing out a two-year extension to outfielder Jason Heyward. 

Wren explained that the team's file and trial policy does not apply to multi-year contracts. There was some thought that the team abandoned their strategy, which would mean Freddie Freeman and Craig Kimbrel could sign before going to trial. That does not appear to be the case unless Freeman or Kimbrel are willing to accept multi-year deals. 


Arbitration dates set for Braves


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/4/2014) The Braves are set to go to arbitration with Jason Heyward, Craig Kimbrel and Freddie Freeman just days before the club gets together for spring training, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Heyward's hearing is set for February 11, Freeman's is on February 13 and Kimbrel's will take place February 17. Pitchers and catchers are set to report on the 12, while position players will report on the 18. All three players are expected to have the hearing, as the Braves are one of the teams that employ a "file to trial" method when it comes to arbitration.


Braves exchange figures with three players Friday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/17/2014) The Braves have exchanged salary arbitration figures with three players, CBSSports.com baseball insider Jon Heyman reports.

First baseman Freddie Freeman filed for $5.75 million, and the Braves offered $4.5 million. He is in his first year of arbitration eligibility after hitting .319/.396/.501 with 23 home runs and 109 RBI in 551 at-bats last season.

Outfielder Jason Heyward filed for $5.5 million, and the team offered $5.2 million. He is his second year of arbitration eligibility after making $3.65 million last season while hitting .254/.349/.427 with 14 home runs and 38 RBI in 382 at-bats.

Closer Craig Kimbrel filed for $9 million, and the team offered $6.55 million. He is in his first year of arbitration eligibility after leading the majors with 50 saves while posting a 1.21 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 98:20 K:BB ratio in 67 innings.


Braves have yet to reach agreement with a number of players


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/17/2014) The Braves still have a number of players who have not settled on a contract for 2014.

The club is in the process of exchanging arbitration numbers with the players, and both sides likely want to avoid an arbitration hearing. Much of the team's core is still unsettled, with Craig Kimbrel, Freddie Freeman, Jason Heyward, Mike Minor and Kris Medlen among the players still in need of a contract. All those players are still under team control, so there's no risk Atlanta will lose them. But they need to agree on a figure for next season. Arbitration hearing are scheduled to take place beginning in February, so the team still has a few weeks to figure out the issue.


Braves tender lengthy list of arbitration candidates


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/2/2013) Faced with a bevy of arbitration-eligible players ahead of Monday's non-tender deadline, the Braves opted to bring back all but three of them. Only one was actually signed to a contract, as the team agreed to undisclosed terms on a one-year deal with infielder Ramiro Pena, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

The team also tendered contracts to nine other players, whose salaries for 2014 will be determined by the arbitration process, unless contracts can be agreed upon. Pitchers Craig KimbrelBrandon Beachy, Kris Medlen, Mike Minor and Jordan Walden; infielders Freddie Freeman and Chris Johnson and outfielders Jason Heyward and Jordan Schafer will all return to the team next season.
