Freddie Freeman Back in Action for Atlanta Braves

It seems Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman has found at least a temporary solution to his dry eye problem.

Freeman is not producing enough natural tears, similar to what the flu-stricken Brian McCann went through a couple years ago. He is back in the lineup tonight after missing last night's game with the Cincinnati Reds after getting new contacts and glasses to wear during games.

Freeman's eyes have been so dry that in the field and while batting, he has said that he has been seeing two baseballs and had to guess which one was the real one. After almost missing a throw from Tyler Pastornicky on Wednesday, Freeman knew he had to sit out until he could get the problem fixed.
