Freddie Freeman sits in fourth place in All-Star voting. The teams are announced on Sunday, and I wouldn't expect the Braves to have any starters. Freeman should make it, and Evan Gattis, Julio Teheran, and Craig Kimbrel have shots to make it as well.
The team is playing well right now, winning six straight and keeping their half game lead over the Nationals. It's important that the Braves at least keep their win total high enough for a wild card spot, so streaks like this are great to see.
Over at Tomahawk Take, Fred Owens breaks down the international free agent signing period. The Braves have had success in this market in the past, so it will be interesting to see who they acquire, if anyone, during this period.
For any fantasy baseball players, RotoGraphs writer Mike Podhorzer breaks down whether Christian Bethancourt is worthy of a pick up in your league.
Rick Porcello went nine shutout innings over the A's without striking anyone out. Porcello is now tied for the league lead with 11 wins, which should allow him to land on the All-Star team.
