Freddie Freeman arrived at spring training on Tuesday and met with the media this morning before getting in an on-field workout. Comments made by Braves GM John Coppolella on Monday that the team would be cautious with Freemanduring the early part of spring training caused a bit of a furor through the fanbase that Freeman might not be 100 percent recovered from the wrist injury that sidelined him for 45 games last season.

Freeman told reporters this morning that his wrist is still gaining strength and he will be ramping up his workouts as spring training progresses.

Freeman will be ramping up his workload slowly over the first few days of spring and hopes to be healthy enough to play in all 162 games this season.
