I know it's only Spring Training, but a lot of the pitchers that players see are still major league quality.
For the past 2 springs, Freddie Freeman has more than held his own against this caliber of pitching
This spring he is hitting .349 (9-26) with 6 RBI
Last spring, when he was only 19, he hit over .300 and was a team leader in RBIs as well.
Now I'm obviously not saying he should start over Glaus, but I think he may be ready sooner than some people think. Many people say he has no chance of seeing action until 2011, but if Glaus gets injured after June or July, I truly believe that Freeman could come up and hold his own at 1b.
If nothing else, he provides a lot of hope for the future. If he can fulfill his potential, him and Heyward could be hitting back to back for a long time in Atlanta.
If needed, do you think Freddie Freeman would be ready to be called up in late 2010?
