Frederick Charles Freeman (born September 12, 1989) is an American professional baseball first baseman for the Los Angeles Dodgers of Major League Baseball (MLB). Previously, Freeman played for the Atlanta Braves for 12 seasons. 

 He made his MLB debut in 2010 and is a five-time MLB All-Star. Freeman won a Gold Glove Award in 2018, the Silver Slugger Award in 2019, 2020 and 2021,

Freeman won the 2021 World Series over the Houston Astros as a member of the Braves. After 12 seasons with the Braves, he entered free agency and then signed a six-year contract with the Dodgers

The Atlanta Braves selected Freeman in the second round, with the 78th overall selection, of the 2007 MLB draft. Freeman signed with the team for $409,500, forgoing his college scholarship.[8] He made his professional debut with the Gulf Coast Braves in 2007 and played for the Rome Braves of the Class A South Atlantic League in 2008.

One week after the MLB lockout ended in March, Freddie Freeman signed with the Los Angeles Dodgers to mark the end of an era as a pillar of the Atlanta Braves franchise.

After the Braves reportedly refused to extend their contract offer to include a sixth year, Freeman shifted his view to teams willing to make that commitment. In stepped the Dodgers who were in need of a left-handed bat and understood they had to make a run at one of the best hitters in the past 15 years.

Now Freeman is returning to Atlanta for the first time since leaving the Braves in free agency. Friday’s series opener at Truist Park will see Freeman receive his 2021 Braves World Series ring.

Freeman has a .298 batting average with six home runs and 40 RBI and an on-base plus slugging percentage of .855 through 66 games. He currently ranks in the 94th percentile in both xBA and xWOBA and still remains one of the league’s best hitters despite a recent lull.

After the Braves visited L.A. in mid-April, Freeman explained both he and Anthopoulos walked away from their conversations with solid understanding.
