Braves' Freddie Freeman (wrist) took batting practice Wednesday

Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman (wrist) took batting practice on Wednesday.

What It Means:

This was the first time Freeman has taken batting practice since fracturing his left wrist. So long as he does not feel any discomfort over the next two days, he is scheduled to begin a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Gwinnett on Saturday and hopes to be activated from the disabled list on July 6. He was initially expected to be out until August or close to it, and is hoping to develop as a third baseman as well.

Prior to injuring his wrist, Freeman had tallied 14 homers, 25 RBI and a ridiculous .476 wOBA through 37 games. Upon his return, we expect him to finish the year with 10 more dingers and 31 RBI.

Kris Bryant exits Cubs' game with possible ankle injury

Chicago Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant left Wednesday's game against the Washington Nationals due to a possible right ankle injury.

What It Means:

Bryant caught a foul pop up in the fifth inning right at the third base bag, but then turned his right ankle after taking a step on the bag while walking back into the infield. He was noticeably limited while he subsequently trudged to the clubhouse with the trainer. The Cubs will update on the severity of the injury soon.

Our models projected Bryant to continue this season with another 348 plate appearances at a .280 batting average with 16 more home runs, 54 runs, 49 RBI, and 6 stolen bases. Depending on the severity of the injury (it seems minor), those projections may change.

Yankees worried Greg Bird (ankle, knee) may not return in 2017

The New York Yankees are concerned that first baseman Greg Bird (ankle, knee) may not be able to return this season, manager Joe Girardi said.

What It Means:

Bird continues to feel soreness in his foot and ankle, complicated by fouling a ball off his right knee during a minor league rehab assignment earlier this month. Chris Carter was recently outrighted to Triple-A, but might need to return soon; Tyler Austin is also dealing with hamstring bruising which could land him on the disabled list.

Our models project Bird to hit .225 with 3 home runs, 11 runs, and 11 RBI in 103 more plate appearances this season, if he can get healthy.

Chase Anderson exits Brewers' game with injury

Chase Anderson left Wednesday's game against the Reds due to a left oblique strain.

What It Means:

Fox Sports Wisconsin's Sophia Minnaert was first with the injury news. Anderson was lifted after striking out at the plate in the second inning, and Paolo Espino took over for him on the mound.

Anderson's 2.89 ERA belies a startling 4.32 xFIP. While he has a strong 23.4 percent strikeout rate and 7.4 percent walk rate, he's due for some home run regression; he's giving up just a 7.8 percent homer per fly ball rate and just a 38 percent ground ball rate.

Corey Seager (hamstring) remains out for Los Angeles on Wednesday

Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager (hamstring) is still out of the starting lineup on Wednesday.

What It Means:

Seager is dealing with a Grade 1 hamstring strain, and still has no timetable for re-entry to the starting lineup. A DL stint is looking more and more likely for the young star. Enrique Hernandez and Chris Taylor have been manning the shortstop spot in his place.

Our models project Seager for a .304 batting average with 12 home runs, 49 runs, 44 RBI, and 4 stolen bases in 332 more plate appearances in 2017.

Sorry, there are no more blurbs for this feed.
