Freddie Freeman 1B ATL 6 days ago

Freeman (wrist) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, retroactive to June 18, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

A Monday MRI revealed no broken bones, but the Braves still want to let Freeman rest for the next couple weeks. He'll be eligible to return from the disabled list July 3, and it may be the case that he has a real shot to be back with the team by that date. In the meantime, Kelly Johnson and Chris Johnson figure to platoon at first base, allowing Eury Perez, who has started four consecutive games, to get more playing time in left field. Joey Terdoslavich, who was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett for the corresponding transaction, could also help fill the void left by Freeman's absence.

Freeman (wrist) will be placed on the 15-day disabled list, but the early indication is that his injury is not too serious, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

An official transaction, along with the results of Monday's MRI, should come at some point Tuesday. Freeman last played in a game June 17, making him eligible to return from the disabled list July 3. In his absence, Kelly Johnson and Chris Johnson will likely platoon at first base, which should lead to more playing time for Eury Perez in left field. Perez has started four consecutive games since being recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday.

Freeman (wrist) is likely to be placed on the disabled list, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

The star of the Braves' lineup has been unable to swing a bat without discomfort, and thus it appears he'll end up serving time on the DL. The results of Monday's MRI are yet unknown, so it's still possible that Freeman could spend the minimum 15 days on the sidelines, which would have him back at the beginning of July.

Freeman has been sore even after receiving an injection Wednesday, and needing an MRI could be a bit concerning. While Tuesday would be the earliest possible date for return, it sounds like his wrist issue could hold him out beyond that.

Freeman felt sore while taking swings Saturday, so it's not a huge surprise that the Braves will hold him out through the off day Monday. There's no indication that a stint on the disabled list will be required, so he should still be considered day-to-day moving forward.
