Freddie Freeman hopes to be able to rejoin the Atlanta Braves when he is eligible to come off the disabled list Monday when the Braves start their series with the Colorado Rockies, braves.com reports, but he'll have to make it through a three-game rehab stint with Triple-A Gwinnett.
Freeman was shut down after five games with a strained oblique, though he initially injured it the day before Opening Day. He homered in his first at-bat against the Philadelphia Phillies and currently has a .412 average.
"I feel great," said Freeman after an indoor batting-practice session at Turner Field.
To test the oblique, Freeman will workout with Gwinnett at Coolray Field before the start of their game. If nothing goes wrong, he'll be in the lineup for the whole three-game series.Tags: Atlanta, Atlanta Braves, Freddie Freeman, MLB
