Freeman is even trying to talk his way into the starting line-up for Saturday’s first exhibition game. However, the Braves are more likely to be cautious in order to preserve his health for the majority of the season.

Freeman’s right knee popped out of place at practice yesterday as he reached to pick a low throw at first base. Team doctors first estimated that the first baseman would have to miss several weeks, however a second look has provided a much more optimistic diagnosis.
