When the Atlanta Braves reported to Spring Training in 2021, the idea was that they would not break camp without having a new long-term extension in place with Freddie Freeman. Spring training ended without an appointment, and so did the regular season. Inexplicably, Freeman is now a free agent and is free to sign a contract with any team, which is a shocking thought for Braves fans, especially after a World Series victory.
Freeman’s free agency was a topic of discussion at MLB Now with Joel Sherman and The Athletics’ David O’Brien and Jayson Stark weighing in. It’s a good discussion, and they throw out some numbers that Freeman might be looking for, but at this point, there are very few answers as to what’s going on between Freeman and the Braves.
