Freeman went 2-for-3 with a walk, solo homer and three runs in Tuesday's game against Philadelphia.

EDGE Analysis

Freeman hit his career-high 33rd homer and stretched his career-best hitting streak to 29 games, leading the Braves to a come-back victory to open their final homestand at Turner Field (they'll be moving nine miles north to SunTrust Park for 2017). The first baseman has been the rare bright spot on the league's worst team, hitting .307/.404/.576 with 88 RBI and 99 runs in 573 at-bats. Despite his team's overall performance, Freeman is sprinting to the finish line, hitting .415 with a ridiculous 1.249 OPS in September.

Freeman went 4-for-5 with a double, a homer, three RBI and two runs against the Mets on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

The Braves, still short of 60 wins, are left playing spoiler at this point, and Freeman's monstrous game helped them spoil the Mets' momentum in this one. The star first baseman now has a 23-game hitting streak going, and his numbers during that streak are outstanding -- a .367 average with five homers, 22 RBI and 18 runs. Fantasy owners who worried that the Braves' terrible offense would hold Freeman back have mostly been proven wrong; no, he probably won't hit 100 RBI, but the lefty slugger now has 31 homers and 41 doubles to go with his .302 average, and he might just score 100 runs for the first time.

Freeman will return from his unofficial paternity leave Saturday, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

Freeman (personal) is out of the lineup Friday against the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

He left the team Wednesday to be with his wife for the birth of the couple's first child, but was not officially placed on paternity leave -- there was really no need to do so with expanded rosters. It's uncertain when Freeman will return to the lineup but chances are he will be back before the end of the series.

Freeman exited Wednesday's game to join his wife, who is in labor with their first child, Kevin McAlpin of Sports Radio 680 The Fan reports.

EDGE Analysis

Freeman will likely miss a couple games and be placed on the paternity list because of the event. However, the Braves don't really need a roster spot due to the expanded September rosters. In his absence, Gordon Beckham could be in line for playing time at first base.

Freeman went 2-for-3 with two walks, a double and a solo shot, his 29th home run of the season, in Sunday's win over the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

After slashing an impressive .313/.460/.688 in July with nine home runs, 24 RBI and 26 runs, Freeman has somehow managed to find another gear to begin August, going 6-for-13 with seven walks, two homers, five RBI and six runs scored through four games.

Freeman went 2-for-3 with a pair of doubles, one of which produced a ninth-inning go-ahead RBI, two walks and two runs in Friday's 8-4 victory over the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

The standout first baseman continued his recent tear, hitting safely for the ninth straight contest and getting on base four times overall. Freeman supplied an extremely timely piece of hitting in the ninth, blasting a two-bagger to left that brought in Ender Inciarte and snapped a 4-4 tie. He scored later in the frame on a Nick Markakis double, and is now 3-for-6 with Friday's doubles, a homer, four RBI, four runs and four walks over the first two games of September.

Freeman went 1-for-3 with his 28th homer, two walks, three RBI and two runs in a win over the Padres on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

He got the scoring started in the third with a two-run homer, then drew a bases-loaded walk in the fifth as the Braves built their lead. One of few bright spots for the Braves this year, Freeman now has hits in eight straight games and 19 of his last 20. If you've been following him over these last three weeks, it'll come as no surprise that his numbers over that span are spectacular -- he's hitting .377 with nine homers, 23 RBI, 21 runs and an incredible 21:14 BB:K.
