An MRI on Freddie Freeman’s right knee revealed no structural damage, only a muscle strain, the Braves announced Wednesday. The Braves’ prize first base prospect in Triple-A Gwinnett is considered day-to-day.
Freeman injured his knee stretching to match a catch at first base on Friday night during Todd Redmond’s not-hitter against Louisville. Freeman had a MRI on Tuesday in Atlanta and met with team doctors on Wednesday.
The 6-fo0t-5 first baseman, considered the Braves’ second-best prospect by Baseball America, is hitting .261 with five homers and 24 RBIs for Gwinnett.
