Freeman was ejected from Monday's game against the Nationals after striking out in his fifth-inning at-bat.

Freeman angrily flipped his helmet after swinging and missing on the bench, with his actions apparently irking home-plate umpire Tim Welke. The first baseman at least contributed base hits in his first two at-bats to save the evening from being a total loss for fantasy owners.

Freeman went 2-for-4 Saturday with his fourth home run of the season, a two-run shot.

He's hitting just .256 (11-for-43), but after hitting just 18 homers last season, Freeman is supplying some great power numbers in the early going.

Freeman went 1-for-4 with his second home run of the season in the Braves' 8-2 loss to the Marlins on Tuesday.

Freeman and catcher A.J. Pierzynski gave Atlanta some life in the fourth inning, smacking back-to-back home runs off Tom Koehler to cut the deficit to three, but that's all the Braves were able to muster. It's worth noting that Freeman, who finished third in the NL in walks last season with 90, has drawn just one walk in 33 plate appearances so far this year. It likely goes hand-in-hand with him now batting in the cleanup spot.

Freeman went 3-for-5 with two doubles, two runs and two RBI in Tuesday's game against the Marlins.

The Braves jumped all over Marlins starter Mat Latos, and the early returns might lead some to think this Braves lineup may not be as terrible as originally anticipated. He now has four hits in his first nine at-bats of the season, although he also has four strikeouts through two games.

Freeman is not expected to play all 162 games again this season, but he also won't sit enough to warrant the Braves carrying a backup who doesn't play several positions, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Chris Johnson will serve as the primary backup at first base, as he has the past two years. Manager Fredi Gonzalez said he would like to get Freeman an occasional day off when the team is facing a tough lefty, though it sounds like Freeman will see a heavy workload again in his sixth major league season. Freeman has appeared in at least 147 games each of the past four years. Kelly Johnson could be an option at first if Freeman was forced to miss more than a game or two in a row, but Johnson will first need to carve out a utility role in spring training.

Freeman, singled, doubled twice, drew a walk and scored two runs in five plate appearances Thursday against the Dodgers.

That's now five multi-hit games in the last eight for Freeman, whose average had dipped all the way to .279 before this hot streak. He has all the tools to hit .290-plus, as he is right now, so expect continued production.

Freeman went 2-for-3 with his first stolen base of the season in Wednesday's win over the Dodgers.

Freeman isn't exactly fleet-footed, so it's always gravy when he can chip in the occasional stolen base. Aside from a small dropoff in his OPS and RBI total, Freeman hasn't really qualified as a disappointment this season, getting on base at a .377 clip while providing 16 homers and 73 runs.
