RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

At first glance, Freeman's 2013 numbers appear to show a marked improvement from 2012, but there are reasons for skepticism. He drew just two more walks than he did in 2012, while striking out only eight fewer times. While Freeman finished second in the National League in RBI with 109, and third in the league with a .319 average, he hit .443 with runners in scoring position, and benefited greatly from a .371 BABIP. Moreover, his ISO dropped from .196 to .181, and he notched just 18 extra-base hits on the road, down from 28 in 2012. Now, all that said, Freeman hit lefties with far more consistency, improving his average against southpaws by 50 points (from .237 to .287), and his overall OPS by 101 points. Freeman didn't hit below .291 in any month of the season, and he appeared in 147 games, a number he's reached in three consecutive seasons. Still just 24 years old, Freeman is locked in at first base and likely into the three-hole in the batting order for Atlanta. While at least a slight regression in average and RBI seems inevitable, he's still an enticing fantasy option.

2013

Freeman's 2012 season ended up being remarkably similar to his rookie campaign of 2011. He had just five more extra-base hits while his OPS went up by just one point. His batting average dropped down to .259 but his strikeout rate dropped slightly and his walk rate improved slightly, indicating that he was showing an improved eye at the plate. Freeman's .282 batting average in 2011 was in part the result of a high batting average on balls in play. In 2012, his BABIP dropped closer to the league average, which could mean that he is closer to being a .260 hitter than a .280 hitter. His RBI and runs both took a big jump in 2012 after he found himself in a more favorable position in the batting order. Just 23, Freeman may not be a top-10 first baseman just yet, but he could take a step forward with improvement against left-handed pitching (.237/.315/.399) or on the road (.245/.314/.421).

2012

Freeman's first season as a regular in the Atlanta lineup was a success as he finished second in the NL Rookie of the Year award voting to teammate Craig Kimbrel. Freeman hit .282 with 21 home runs, but just 76 RBI as he hit lower in the order much of the season. While Freeman draws walks at a decent rate, he struck out 142 times and his below-average contact rate could hurt his batting average. His 22 home runs and .794 OPS were not elite for a first baseman and some have questioned if he'll develop significant power. However, at 6-5 and 220 pounds, he has the body to hit more home runs and will be just 22 years old next season. He'll get every opportunity to become an elite first baseman as Atlanta's everyday starter. Keep an eye on his health this spring, as Freeman suffered a knee injury in late February could miss a week or two of Grapefruit League action.

2011

Freeman is Atlanta's top hitting prospect who is expected to take over everyday duty at first base in 2011. Freeman was outstanding at Triple-A at just 20 years old by hitting .319/.378/.518 with 18 home runs. He later got his first taste of the majors in September. Freeman has a strong eye at the plate and increased his power numbers at Triple-A, which should continue to improve as he fills out his frame. He also plays strong defense, which should help him stay in the lineup if he struggles initially. He's a leading candidate for NL Rookie of the Year as a result.

2010

Freeman is Atlanta's first baseman of the future and could be a factor in the majors as early as 2010. After hitting .302/.394/.447 at High-A, he hit .298/.337/.452 at Double-A in July at just 19 years old before suffering a hand injury that limited him in the second half and ultimately ended his season. He's got a strong eye at the plate and should develop more power as he grows. He'll likely start the season at Double-A, but a strong start to the year could see him promoted aggressively. He's a top keeper to grab as a result.

2009

Freeman, a 2007 second-round pick, had a breakout season with good power and plate discipline. Finishing his first full year as a pro just prior to his 19th birthday, Freeman hit .316/.378/.521 with 18 homers in 491 at-bats at Low-A Rome after struggling in the Gulf Coast League in 2007. Given his age and the significant leap in production this early in his career, Freeman should be on the radar for those in keeper leagues, even though he's unlikely to make his major league debut until at least 2010.
