Braves' Fredi Gonzalez begins to ponder options at cleanup spot


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/5/2015) Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said he is leaning toward batting Jonny Gomes or Chris Johnson cleanup against left-handed starters, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. He might even move Freddie Freeman to fourth against right-handed starters, but Gonzalez is not sure yet if that will happen.

Justin Upton, who was traded to San Diego in the offseason, started a team-high 120 games as the Braves' cleanup hitter in 2014. Johnson made 17 starts in the cleanup spot last season.

As a team, the Braves hit .255 with a .444 slugging percentage, .763 OPS, 25 home runs, 37 doubles and a team-best 102 RBI out of the fourth spot in the lineup last season.


Lack of lineup protection hurt Braves 1B Freddie Freeman in 2014


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/30/2014) Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman was great during clutch situations in 2013, finishing second in the majors with a .443 average with runners in scoring position. However, he wasn't nearly as productive in that area in 2014, batting .294 with runners in scoring position.

"I think the formula for Freddie is getting consistent chances," Braves hitting coach Greg Walker said, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "The (No.) 1 and 2 hole was up and down this year. We couldn’t find consistent answers there. We needed Jason (Heyward) in both spots, in the middle and leading off. That was not what he wanted to do. Jason views himself as a middle-of-the-lineup hitter. He’s a team player and he’s going to do whatever the manager asks him to do, but that’s what he views himself as, a middle-of-the-order hitter.

"But if you give Freddie consistent chances and they pitch to him, that’s another big key. You’ve got to have somebody behind him, that’s part of the puzzle. Yeah, Justin (Upton) had a great year hitting behind him this year, but one reason (Upton) had a lot of RBI is that Freeman walked a lot."


Freddie Freeman lacking home-run power in recent weeks


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/20/2014) Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman has managed just one home run since Aug. 15.

Freeman maintains great overall numbers while playing virtually every inning of every game for the Braves this season, but only five of his 18 home runs have come in the second half. Despite the relative lack of power, he soared in August, hitting .330/.444/.476 in 103 at-bats. Overall, Freeman has hit .290/.387/.469 with 18 home runs and 73 RBI in 576 at-bats.


Freddie Freeman slams three hits in defeat to Dodgers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/14/2014) First baseman Freddie Freeman certainly can't be blamed for his team's loss Thursday that left it one defeat short of .500. He led the Braves with two doubles and a single against the Dodgers and scored two runs.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Freddie Freeman slugs 14th home run Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Freddie Freeman still looking for first July home run


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Freddie Freeman scores four without a hit Saturday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/28/2014) One would assume that if Braves slugger Freddie Freeman achieved the first four-run game of his career that he would manage at least one hit in the process.

Well, one would assume wrong. Freeman indeed crossed the plate four times Saturday in Philadelphia, but did it without a hit. He walked three times and got on base on a fielder's choice. His strange numbers adjusted his stat line on the year to .289/.380/.503.
