Freddie Freeman feeling 100 percent following elbow surgery

New, 23 comments

Freeman is feeling 100 percent heading into the spring.

Freddie Freeman spoke with 680 The Fan’s Kevin McAlpin at Chop Fest and gave an update on the condition of his elbow. Bone spurs hampered Freeman down the stretch of the 2019 season and he underwent surgery shortly after Atlanta’s division series loss to the Cardinals.

During the procedure, doctors removed two bone spurs and three loose fragments. The second spur was discovered during the surgery and there was very little room in his elbow joint.

Freeman went on to say that he feels 100 percent and is ready to go for the start of spring camp. He has been hitting and throwing since mid-December and that he had been dealing with pain in his elbow for the last nine years.

From a medical standpoint, Freeman’s status was the biggest offseason question for the Braves. Having Freeman 100 percent is great news for the Braves as they head into the spring.
