Freeman was 2-for-5 with a pair of home runs and four RBI as the Braves defeated Philadelphia on Friday night.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Freeman is hitting a respectable .272 on the year, but despite having eight home runs, he has driven in just 15 as the sputtering Atlanta offense often fails to provide him many RBI chances. Perhaps Ender Inciarte and Gordon Beckham who are just returning from injuries will provide more baserunners in front of him going forward.

Freeman went 3-for-4 with his third homer in four games and two runs scored against the Phillies on Wednesday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

After a slow start, the stats are coming up, but Atlanta's horrendous offense is severely limiting Freeman's counting stats -- he has six homers, but only 10 RBI and 14 runs, numbers that simply aren't going to set fantasy owners' hearts racing even if they come with solid average and a strong OPS. That said, the Braves just got Ender Inciarte back and Nick Markakis gets on base a lot, so Freeman should see some kind of uptick in RBI opportunities moving forward.

Freeman hit his fifth home run, a solo shot, in a 2-for-4 game in Tuesday's loss to Philadelphia.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Freeman has a pair of dingers to go with three walks in his last three games. He got off to a slow start in terms of power production this season, but his slugging percentage is now up to .464, right between his 2014 mark (.461) and 2015 mark (.471). While it's looking unlikely at this point in his career that Freeman develops into a major power threat, he has been very consistent. He has hit between 18 and 23 home runs each of the past five seasons and should be expected to land there again this year if he stays healthy.

Freeman is 6-for-18 (.333) with three extra-base hits, including a home run over his last 10 games.

Competitive Edge Analysis

He went 0-for-4 Sunday, but before that, he registered a hit in 17 of the prior 20 games. During that time, his average rose from .080 to .275. Going into Tuesday's game, Freeman is slashing .264/.376/.434 with four homers, eight RBI and 11 runs in 106 at-bats.

Freeman went 1-for-3 with a solo homer and a walk Saturday against the Diamondbacks.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Freeman's fourth homer of the season came in the first inning to give the Braves a lead in a game they'd go on to lose. He's now hit safely in five straight games while collecting four extra-base hits during that span to move his slash line to .275/.378/.451.

Freeman went 2-for-4 in Friday's 7-2 loss to the Diamondbacks.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The 26-year-old slugger is increasingly resembling the proficient hitter he'd proven to be to this point his career, with Friday's effort boosting his average to a .273 figure that's his highest since Opening Day. Freeman has now reached safely in 10 straight, and is slashing .333/.400/.500 over his first 18 at-bats in May. He's also collected half of his doubles total during the month to date, with three two-baggers in the series against the Mets earlier in the week.

Freeman went 10-for-22 (.455) with two home runs, two RBI and three runs last week, as he officially broke out of his early season slump.

Competitive Edge Analysis

He was hitting just .080 on April 14 and still only .156 by April 20th, but Freeman has reached base safely in 12 of his last 15 games. Before Sunday, he also had three straight games with multiple hits. He's still not going to get a lot of RBI opportunities in the Braves lineup, but it's good to see Freeman break out of the early slump.

Freeman was 2-for-4 with a solo home run in a losing effort against the Cubs on Friday afternoon.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Freeman has started to hit a bit, logging multi-hit games in five of his last seven starts, including a pair of home runs in his last three. He has his average up to a modest .259 with three home runs and seven RBI, but the 5-18 Braves are going to need others to step up as well if they are going to improve on the worst record in baseball.

Freeman went 3-for-4 with a walk in Thursday's win against the Red Sox.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Thursday was his fourth multi-hit performance in the last six games, raising his average to .247 through his first 77 at-bats. Freeman's numbers so far have certainly been a disappointment as he's notched just five extra-base hits - only two of which were homers - and six RBI in the first month of the season. The first baseman has loads of talent, but is stuck on the worst team in baseball which limits his production and allows pitchers to work around him. Freeman has earned the right for owners to be patient with him, but the lack of talent around the 26-year-old may be too much to overcome this season.

Freeman went 2-for-4, hitting his first home run since Opening Day against the Red Sox on Wednesday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

It was his first homer in 72 at-bats. The bomb also ended a streak of 15 straight games without a home run for the Braves, which is a new franchise record. Freeman's had a tough start to the year, but he is 5-for-11 (.455) in his last three games and has hit safely in eight of the last 10.
