- Freddie Freeman
Freeman is current face of the Braves franchise and one of the better hitters not only on the team but in the National League. Last season saw his numbers hit career highs for the most part with the only concerning one being the rise in Freeman’s strikeout rate.
If Freeman can continue to build off of last season as he is expected to the Braves offense is not going to be an easy lineup to face. His power seems to be growing with his homerun rate up, though his ability to hit with runners in scoring position will need to improve in 2017.
Projected statline- .323 Average-.403 OBP-89 Runs scored-107 RBI-4 Stolen Bases- 36 Homers
Projecting a career season following up his best season to date may seem odd but Freeman has the best lineup around him in quite some time and if healthy the talent to put up those numbers. Freeman is the most important piece of the Braves offense this season as he goes the offense seems to follow suit. Freeman is set for another career season and give the fans something to watch as the team continues to rebuild.
