Sat Jul 2006:37Freddie Freeman Hits Grand Slam Friday
Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Freddie Freeman provided all the offense for his team in a 4-1 win over the Boston Red Sox on Friday. Freeman went 1-for-4 with a grand slam to power LA to the win. The veteran first baseman's grand slam came off Boston reliever Brennan Bernardino in the eighth inning, erasing a 1-0 lead for the Red Sox. Freeman is having another excellent season, hitting .291 with 15 homers, 58 runs, 65 RBI, and five steals over 358 at-bats. He had been slumping over his past seven games, hitting just .154, so hopefully the grand slam on Friday will get his bat going again.

Tue Jun 1809:38Freddie Freeman Reaches Base Six Times
Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Freddie Freeman recorded five walks and two runs scored during the team's 9-5 win over the Colorado Rockies on Monday.

He is slashing .302/.412/.504 with 10 homers, 43 RBI, and 47 runs scored. Freeman has been lethal in June to opposing pitchers as he is hitting .373/.500/.725 with four homers, 10 RBI, and 15 runs scored, along with a 1.225 OPS. One of the elite players at his position, Freeman continues to be an easy plug-and-play for fantasy managers.

Wed Jun 1209:49Freddie Freeman Joins Parade With Ninth Homer
Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Freddie Freeman put together a big performance in Tuesday's victory versus the Texas Rangers. The slugger went 3-for-4 on the evening with three runs and a solo home run. Freeman was one of five Dodgers to go yard in a 15-2 routing of the defending World Series champs. On the season, Freeman is now hitting .297 with nine homers, 41 RBI and three stolen bases. At age 34, Freeman has shown no issues of slowing down and hitting behind Mookie Betts and Shohei Ohtani may be the spot in any lineup in baseball. The veteran remains one of the safest and most consistent option at the first base position moving forward.

Mon Jun 300:44Freddie Freeman Homers, Gets On Base Four Times
Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Freddie Freeman went 1-for-1 with a homer and three walks in a 4-0 win over the Colorado Rockies on Sunday. Freeman was perfect at the dish, showcasing his elite on-base skills while popping some power as well. He added two runs and two RBI to his line, making for a solid day at the dish. While he hasn't been the same Freddie we saw last year and hasn't quite lived up to his first-round pedigree, he's still been a solid fantasy contributor. He is now up to a .293 AVG and .877 OPS to go with 35 runs, seven homers, 35 RBI, and two steals.

Tue May 2822:00Freddie Freeman Homers With Three RBI In Matinee
Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Freddie Freeman enjoyed a big day at the plate in Tuesday's win over the hosting New York Mets during Game 1 of a doubleheader, belting his sixth home run of the season with three RBI. After an RBI single in the eighth inning off left-hander Jake Diekman, Freeman buried the Mets with a two-run homer to right off right-hander Jorge Lopez that extended the Dodgers' lead in the 10th inning. The power hasn't really been there thus far this year for the 34-year-old fantasy sensation, who's still quietly slashing .291/.394/.461 with six long balls, 33 RBI, and one stolen base through 57 games as LA's everyday No. 3 hitter in a stacked lineup. With that said, Freeman remains a set-and-forget fantasy play on a daily basis and should pick things up soon.

Tue May 2100:57Freddie Freeman Hits Grand Slam Monday
Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Freddie Freeman had another solid offensive performance in Monday's 6-4 win over the Diamondbacks. Freemen provided one of three of his team's home runs, going 2-for-4 with a single and a grand slam. The 34-year-old has shown no signs of slowing down at the plate, slashing .298/.409/.464 with five HR, 29 RBI, and one stolen base. Even given his fantasy track record and high caliber, fantasy managers may be worried that age could negatively strike down his numbers at some point. This does not seem like an imminent threat, as he has continued to produce while hitting in the middle of one of baseball's best lineups.

Sun Apr 2816:29Freddie Freeman Blasts Solo Homer Sunday
Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Freddie Freeman was 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk during Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays. It was just the second homer of the season for Freeman and his first since March 28th. Despite the slight power outage, the former MVP has still been quite productive. Freeman is slashing .306/.425/.435 with 19 RBI, one stolen base and a 15.4 BB%. The 34-year-old is still one of the best bats in baseball and a serious hot streak might be right around the corner.

Fri Mar 2911:15Freddie Freeman Leads Dodgers To Victory
Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Freddie Freeman smacked his first homer of the season in a 7-1 win over the St. Louis Cardinals. Freeman showed why he was a top-five pick in most drafts, going 2-for-3 with the aforementioned home run while knocking in three and scoring a pair of runs. Statlines like this should be common occurrences for Freeman, who will have plenty of runners on base when he hits with Mookie Betts and Shohei Ohtani batting before him. Expect another brilliant season from the 34-year-old.

Wed Mar 2709:56Freddie Freeman Finishes Spring With Fourth Homer
Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Freddie Freeman finished Spring Training with a 1-for-4 performance against the Los Angeles Angels. Freeman's lone hit was a solo home run. For the spring, the veteran finishes with four homers, 16 RBI and a .282 average. Although he is another year older, Freeman remains as consistent as they come. One of the safest picks this season, Freeman should once again put-up big power numbers with a healthy batting average. He remains as safe of a pick as there is entering 2024 and should have even more RBI opportunities with Shohei Ohtani joining Mookie Betts as the two batters in front of Freeman this season.

Sun Feb 2518:17Freddie Freeman Homers, Collects Two RBI In Spring Training Debut
Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Freddie Freeman went 1-for-2 with a homer, sacrifice fly, two RBI and a run scored in Friday's 4-1 Cactus League win over the Padres. Freeman was batting in his usual second spot in the order and picking right where he left off last season. He ambushed the first pitch he saw from Padres right-handed starter Jhony Brito, sending it over the left-centerfield wall for his first home run of the spring. In his third at-bat, the perennial All-Star nearly had another HR when he sent the first pitch he saw to the warning track in right-center, but it resulted in a sac fly instead, driving in his second run of the game. As one would expect, Freeman hasn't missed a beat, and after hitting .331-29-102-131-23 last season, the veteran appears primed for another strong campaign. Now projected to hit in front of last year's AL MVP, Shohei Ohtani, his run totals could see a bump, and he had 12 more SB than any first baseman in 2023. Going around eighth overall, the 34-year-old is a fine foundational piece and multi-category contributor for any 2024 fantasy baseball team.

Wed Dec 13 202314:50Dodgers Superstars Attend Meeting With Yoshinobu Yamamoto
A trio of Los Angeles Dodgers superstars attended a meeting with free-agent pitcher Yoshinobu Yamamoto on Tuesday at Dodger Stadium, as Shohei Ohtani, Freddie Freeman, and Mookie Betts all were part of the discussion. Of course, Ohtani's presence is the key, as he is a countryman of Yamamoto's and a teammate of his in March's World Baseball Classic championship with Team Japan. The right-hander and Ohtani have dominated the rumor mill this offseason, and there are reportedly plenty of clubs pursuing Yamamoto's services on the open market. A two-time NPB MVP, Yamamoto, 25, worked to a dominant 1.21 ERA across 23 outings with the Orix Buffaloes last season.

Sat Sep 30 202310:39Freddie Freeman Pours In Three More Hits Friday
Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Freddie Freeman went 3-for-4 with a home run, a double, and three runs scored in Friday's 6-2 win over the San Francisco Giants. Freeman scored a run after a first-inning single before whacking a solo shot in the third frame. He doubled and came around for another during the sixth on a J.D. Martinez homer to help the Dodgers pull away a bit. Another game with three knocks or greater raises the tally to 21 on the campaign for the seven-time All-Star, who absolutely crushed it in his second year with LA. Freeman is slashing a ludicrous .334/.412/.572 with 29 round-trippers, 102 RBI, 131 runs scored, and 23 stolen bases in 721 trips to the plate. He's one double short of being the first to reach 60 since 1936.

Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Freddie Freeman went 4-for-5 with a double, one RBI, and three runs scored in Friday's 7-4 win over the Boston Red Sox. It was just another day at the office for the hitting machine, as Freeman notched the fifth four-hit pursuit of his MVP-level campaign in this one. Besides that feat, the 33-year-old notably drove in a go-ahead run on a seventh-inning double. Freeman is giving Ronald Acuna Jr. a run for his money in the 2023 NL MVP race, slashing a formidable .341/.415/.580 with an MLB-leading 48 doubles, 23 home runs, 86 RBI, 107 runs scored, and 17 stolen bases through 505 at-bats.

Sun Aug 13 202310:06Freddie Freeman Fine After Hit-By-Pitch
Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Freddie Freeman (knee) came out of Saturday's game versus the Colorado Rockies after taking a hit-by-pitch to his right knee in the seventh inning. He went 0-for-3 before his night ended. The 33-year-old was not pinch-run for, however, and felt much better after getting treatment following the contest. X-rays were deemed unnecessary, and it looks like Freeman is prepared to get right back into Sunday's lineup without potentially needing his first day off of the campaign. The fantasy superstar is hitting .342 with 28 home runs, an MLB-leading 43 doubles, 83 RBI, 101 runs scored, and 16 stolen bases in 532 plate appearances (116 games).

Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Freddie Freeman went 4-for-5 with an RBI, a stolen base, and two runs scored in Tuesday's 7-3 win over the Oakland Athletics. The 33-year-old would get busy after a first-inning flyout, leading off the fourth frame with a single which helped jump-start a four-run Dodgers surge. Freeman then doubled during the fifth before singling in the seventh, eventually coming around to score another run. The superstar then put a bow on his big night with an eighth-inning RBI single to provide some insurance, adding a swipe in the frame, too. It was Freeman's fourth four-hit effort of the year. MLB's doubles leader (36) has certainly been amazing all year, but Freeman is seriously raking of late. The three-time Silver Slugger is batting .425 (34-for-80) with seven home runs, eight doubles, and 20 RBI in his last 20 games.

Fri Jul 7 202301:02Freddie Freeman Stuffs The Stat Sheet In Win
Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Freddie Freeman went 3-for-4 with a home run, a double, three RBI, two runs scored, and a stolen base in a 5-2 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Thursday. Freeman did a little bit of everything in this one, reminding everyone why he'll be starting in next week's All-Star game in Seattle. He put the Dodgers on the board in the bottom of the first inning with a two-run blast, his 15th of the season, off Johan Oviedo to score Mookie Betts. He would then provide an insurance run with an RBI single in the seventh to score Betts again and give the Dodgers a 5-2 lead. The 33-year-old also swiped a bag in this one. For the season, Freeman is slashing an absurd .320/.397/.542 with 15 home runs, 57 RBI, and 12 stolen bases across 347 at-bats on the season. That'll do just nicely.

Sat Jun 24 202309:15Freddie Freeman’s Mediocre June Continues
Fantasy managers have become accustomed to multi-hit games and a .900 OPS from Los Angeles Dodgers first basemanFreddie Freeman, and he did just that and more in April and May. However, the month of June has been a slow one thus far for the three-time Silver Slugger. Freeman has multiple hits in just three of 18 games since the beginning of the month, and he's recorded just six extra-base hits (two doubles and four homers) in that span while walking eight times and striking out 17. That's an abnormal stretch for the Dodgers' two-hitter, largely due to an alarming 20% strikeout rate in June. That being said, Freeman's line drive rate (22.2%) and hard-hit rate (38.9%) help to dispel any panic. It's hard to believe fantasy managers can buy low on such a model of consistency, but perhaps this is the lone quiet span of the season for Freeman while he irons out a kink in his approach. Despite an 0-for-4 night on Friday, expect this studly first baseman to find his groove heading into the "Dog Days" of July. Overall, the 33-year-old is slashing .322/.421/.549 with 14 home runs, 47 RBI, 60 runs, and eight stolen bases over 344 plate appearances in 2023.
