Freddie Freeman (elbow) back for Braves next week

Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman (elbow) is expected to return to Grapefruit League action next week.

What It Means:

Freeman was scratched from Grapefruit League action on Tuesday due to inflammation in his surgically-repaired right elbow. He should be fine for Opening Day.

Freeman slashed .295/.389/.549 across 692 plate appearances last season. He set career-bests with 38 home runs, 121 RBI, and 113 runs scored.
