"Freddie's probably going on the DL tomorrow," said Mississippi manager Phillip Wellman on Sunday afternoon, just after the Chattanooga Lookouts beat Wellman's Braves 2-1 at AT&T Field. "He's been playing in pain for the last couple of weeks with a bad hand. It's probably time to shut him down." Said Freeman as he exited the visitors clubhouse, "It's really frustrating. I didn't want to end the season like this."Freddie Freeman to the DL It looks like we know why Freeman may have been struggling lately. No reason to push him when he's injured. Freeman has proven plenty this year, and we need to protect our long term plans for him. I wonder if this will put is AFL status in question. (hat tip: playertobenamed) [UPDATE 4PM] It's official via a Mississippi Braves press release, they have disabled Freeman. They have promoted Ernesto Mejia from Myrtle Beach to Mississippi.
