Freeman is not in the lineup Thursday against the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

The Braves have already clinched a playoff berth, so Freeman will head to the bench for what appears to be a regular day off following 19 straight starts. The first baseman slashed .319/.370/.472 with two homers, two stolen bases and 12 RBI over that stretch. Ryan Flaherty is starting at first base and hitting eighth in place of Freeman.

Freeman went 3-for-3 with a walk, a homer, a stolen base and three RBI in Wednesday's win over the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Freeman put the Braves up 2-0 with his two-run shot off Jack Flaherty in the fourth inning, marking his 23rd homer of the season. He added an RBI-single and a stolen base in the fifth frame. Freeman's 10 stolen bases are a career-high, though he's five homers shy of his 2017 total despite having played 35 more games. The first baseman is now hitting .324/.377/.515 through 18 games this month.

Freeman went 1-for-1 with a solo homer in Wednesday's loss to the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Freeman went deep in the bottom of the eighth inning in his lone at-bat of the game to put the Braves up 8-7, though the Red Sox would respond with two runs of their own to claim the victory. While the 28-year-old first baseman has cooled off at the dish over the past two weeks, he's still hitting an impressive .307/.388/.507 with 21 homers and eighth stolen bases on the season.

Freeman is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

It appears Freeman is receiving some maintenance time with the Braves playing a day game after a night game, allowing Lucas Duda to check into the lineup at first base. Freeman's bid for the NL MVP award has lost some steam over the past two weeks, with the 28-year-old slashing just .157/.228/.216 across his last 13 starts.

Freeman went 2-for-4 with a triple, three RBI and a run scored in Thursday's 5-4 loss to the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

Freeman singled in a run during the third inning before knocking a two-run triple in the fifth. Nothing out of the ordinary for the 28-year-old, who now owns a terrific .311/.394/.512 slash line and 81 RBI in 591 plate appearances.

Freeman went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two RBI in the second half of Monday's doubleheader against Miami.

EDGE Analysis

Freeman singled home a run in the fifth inning, and he padded the lead in the seventh by slugging a solo homer over the fence in right field. The 28-year-old has collected a base knock in nine of his previous 10 games, although he's recorded just one home run over that span. He sits with a .319/.398/.530 slash line and a .928 OPS through 117 games in 2018.

Freeman went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's win over the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

It's his 18th homer of the year but just his third in July, although Freeman's still maintained value on the month with a .299/.351/.494 slash line, 12 runs and 13 RBI in 22 games. Given his red-hot first half, don't be surprised if Freeman picks up the pace again in August.

Freeman went 3-for-4 with a double, triple, RBI and two runs scored Saturday against the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

Freeman recorded his first three-hit game since June 5, though he is still hitting a strong .310 for the season. He has also quietly been struggling to hit for power, as he now has only four extra-base hits since June 22. Despite those recent struggles, it's hard to complain about anything Freeman has done this season as he ranks in the top-10 in the National League in batting average, home runs, RBI, runs scored, walks and slugging percentage.

Freeman (triceps) will start at first base and bat third in Thursday's tilt against Milwaukee, David O'Brien of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Freeman will play in the series opener after getting hit by a pitch on his triceps Wednesday. The 28-year-old first baseman will look to build on his stellar numbers at the plate, as he's batting .308 with 16 home runs and 56 RBI through 85 games in 2018.

Braves manager Brian Snitker said that Freeman (triceps) is "fine" and will likely be included in the lineup Thursday in Milwaukee, David O'Brien of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

Atlanta received a scare when Freeman was hit by a pitch in the right triceps during a second-inning at-bat, which later resulted in the slugger's departure from the contest. Freeman felt some tightness shortly after the beaning, but it seems his removal was mostly precautionary. If the first baseman is able to complete batting practice Thursday without any complications, he shouldn't be forced to miss any time due to the injury.
