The Atlanta Braves’ Tyler Flowers has been a nice surprise

When the Atlanta Braves brought back hometown catcher Tyler Flowers this past winter, many Braves were indifferent on the under-the-radar move. It wasn’t massive news in Braves Country.

How Good is Julio Teheran?

Atlanta’s ace, Julio Teheran, has a career 3.34 ERA, a good mark even for this pitching-friendly era. This year’s numbers, at least in some ways, are the best of his career. He’s a 25-year-old with less than $30 million in guaranteed money remaining on his contract, which runs through 2020 if you count the low-cost team option for that season. If the Braves make him available...

Freddie Freeman’s Delicate Balance of Power and Contact

Last week, I wrote about the dearth of production at the first-base position this season. In the piece, I highlighted Wil Myers as one of the few, young beacons of hope at the position and mentioned a few other young stars, but there was one notable guy I failed to mention: the Braves’ sole star-caliber position player, 26-year-old first baseman Freddie Freeman. It wasn’t a slight...

Watch Freddie Freeman hit for cycle

It’s a good thing Wednesday’s Reds-Braves game went 13 innings, as the extra at-bats for Freddie Freeman gave him the opportunity to hit for the cycle. Freeman hit a double in the third inning, followed that up with a triple in the fourth and then blasted a home run in the sixth inning. When he came to the plate in the eleventh inning, all he needed was a single, so you probably...
