Is he in the lineup today? I doubted he would be and haven't seen one for the braves yet. 

Yes sir.

 

Freddie Freeman (wrist) is starting at first base and hitting third Thursday night against the Mets.

Freeman took a pitch off his left wrist on Wednesday -- the same wrist he fractured last season -- but tests came back negative for any fractures and he has talked his way into the lineup for Thursday's series opener versus the Mets. What a gamer.

Great news but still got to be concerned with managers telling their pitchers to throw junk pitches to him as long as Markakis is hitting cleanup.

Do you guys think he’ll start wearing wrist protection moving forward? Would help me sleep better at night.

Just wait till Joey Bats comes up!  

 

In all seriousness, hopefully that would help some.

Not sure where Acuna will bat but you gotta imagine another legit bat in that lineup will make it harder to throw him nonsense. I doubt Bautista will change things for anyone.

You mean help him get thrown at again after Bats shows up a pitcher?;)

Acuna would help a bit more.  But for now we will just continue to see pitchers throw everything outside strike zone against him.

Now you can have celebratory beers.  Beer is so versatile like that.

Great.  I’ll drink them then!

Freeman is a stud! Hopefully, Freddie stays healthy all year and hits 35-40 HR. Happily, some will come with runners on base too.
