Jose Ramirez
 Freddie Freeman was scratched from Tuesday's lineup and should return Friday, according to manager Brian Snitker.
Steve Painter
Wed, Mar 11th
Cleveland Indians third baseman Jose Ramirez went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer in an 8-5 loss to the Cubs on Saturday.
Matthew Terelle
Sun, Mar 8th
 Freddie Freeman was scratched from Tuesday's spring game against the Orioles for what the team said is a family matter.
Steve Painter
Tue, Mar 10th
 Freddie Freeman (elbow) will return to the Braves lineup against the Phillies Monday.
Steve Painter
Mon, Mar 2nd
 Freddie Freeman (elbow) won't return to game action until next week, though general manager Alex Anthopolous reiterated that the Braves are not concerned about the injury.
Connor Rooney
Wed, Feb 26th
 Freddie Freeman will be scratched from Tuesday's spring training matchup against the Twins due to elbow inflammation.
Dave Kluge
Tue, Feb 25th
 There's no reason to doubt Freeman's outstanding performance when healthy, but the fact that he's already dealing with elbow soreness after purportedly fighting through it last year is a bit discouraging. Unless Freeman's injury lingers deep into the spring, don't knock him too much, as his combination of batting average, power, and overall safety is rare. But for now, it's worth dropping him closer to the back end of the second round than the front.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Ramirez's overall 2019 season was obviously subpar, as much as a 23-homer, 24-steal year can be. He batted just .218 in the first half with a mere seven home runs, and his fantasy value was saved only by his 18 first-half steals. But he looked closer to his old self in the second half, batting .327 with an 1.105 OPS. Whether it was him trying to do too much in the first half or something related to his newborn child (his surge happened to coincide with his return from paternity leave), Ramirez's return to normalcy in the second half should give you plenty of confidence in his 2020 outlook.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 Freeman might not be the most exciting second round pick, but the floor over the past four years has been a .300 hitter with 90+ runs, 90+ RBIs and 25 homers. Last season he was at 113 runs, 38 HRs and 121 RBIs so it isn't like his ceiling is too bad either.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Ramirez is certainly an interesting case because he only finished 15th among fantasy third basemen in 2019 but finished the year so strong that many are remembering why he was a first round pick to begin with. Ramirez is a near-ock to go 20/20 again but with upside for that majestic 40/35 season with a strong average.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
  Strange 2019 and yet still a very productive one. 25/15/.280 feels like his Floor with 30/25/.300 as a reachable Ceiling. Safe and yet elite. That pushes him this high and justifiably higher for owners that aren't buying into the idea that SP is thin and needs to be poached earlier than in past years.
