Sam Freeman
Aug 19: The Braves reinstated Freeman (shoulder) from the 10-day disabled list Sunday. Freeman wrapped up a three-game minor-league rehab assignment at Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday with a scoreless inning out of the bullpen and should settle back into a middle-relief role for the big club. The lefty, who had been sidelined since late July with shoulder inflammation, maintains a 5.45 ERA and 1.51 WHIP over 49 appearances for the Braves this season.

Aug 15: Freeman (shoulder) moved his rehab assignment to Triple-A Gwinnett and tossed a scoreless inning Tuesday in his appearance against Louisville. He worked around a hit and walk and struck out a batter while capturing the win in relief. It was the second minor-league appearance for Freeman, who has been on the disabled list since July 30 with left shoulder inflammation. Assuming he endures no setbacks in his subsequent outings at Triple-A, Freeman looks like a good bet to rejoin the Braves before the end of August. Over 49 appearances out of the big-league bullpen this season, Freeman has posted a 5.45 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 43:27 K:BB.

Aug 12: Freeman (shoulder) starts a minor-league rehab assignment at Low-A Rome on Sunday, David O'Brien of The Athletic Atlanta reports. Freeman landed on the disabled list in late July with left shoulder inflammation and should only require an outing or two in the minors. The veteran left-hander has struggled this season with a 5.45 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 43:27 K:BB over 39.2 innings.

Jul 30: Freeman was placed on the 10-day disabled list due to left shoulder inflammation retroactive to Sunday. It's unclear as to when Freeman suffered the injury, though he looked shaky during both appearances against the Dodgers in Atlanta's most recent series. He will be eligible to return from the shelf Aug. 8 in Washington. In a corresponding move, Brad Brach was added to the Braves' ative roster after being acquired in a trade with Baltimore on Sunday.

Jul 9: Freeman gave up a run on two hits and two walks over two-thirds of an inning while striking out one in Sunday's loss to the Brewers. The run came on a solo shot by Jesus Aguilar, and Freeman was lucky to escape the outing with as little damage to his ERA as he did. The left-hander has a woeful 7.53 ERA, 1.60 WHIP and 16:9 K:BB in 14.1 innings since the beginning of June, and he'll continue to see action in low-leverage spots until he proves he can be entrusted with more critical duties.

Apr 24: Freeman will have his usage scaled back after pitching in 14 of the Braves' first 21 games this season, Gabriel Burns of The Atlanta-Journal Constitution reports. He's only thrown 9.2 innings in those appearances, filling the role of lefty specialist, but fatigue is still beginning to show. Freeman's been charged with six runs (five earned) in just one-third of an inning over his last two games including a rough outing Monday, and his 8:10 K:BB on the season is very poor. The Braves do have other southpaw relievers available, namely A.J. Minter and Jesse Biddle, so expect Freeman to get some time to rest and recover before manager Brian Snitker calls his name again.

Apr 4: Freeman was credited with a hold after striking out the lone batter he faced in Wednesday's 7-1 win over the Nationals. With Ryan Zimmerman at the dish with two outs and the bases loaded in the bottom of the sixth inning, Freeman was called upon from the bullpen to clean up the mess created by Mike Foltynewicz and Peter Moylan. Despite having been used the previous two days, Freeman showed no signs of fatigue, battling Zimmerman to a 3-2 count before getting a called strike three to end the threat. With the Braves off the schedule Thursday, Freeman will pick up some rest and should be ready to handle high-leverage work during the team's three-game series in Colorado over the weekend.
