Fantasy Impact:

Manager Brian Snitker played off the lineup scratch as nothing serious and just a part of his rehab process, saying that it should just be a few days and "when he starts feeling good we'll get him back out there." It's been four and a half months since Freeman had his elbow surgery and while a lot of fantasy owners and Braves fans could get alarmed by this news, this doesn't seem to be anything to monitor too closely. As long as he can suit up for a few spring games before Opening Day Freeman should assume an early-round pick in all formats.
