From three teams, actually:

 

The Mets pitching staff would be the hardest of those three for Dice-K to crack, but if he truly wants to remain in the states he’ll take one of these. If what he truly wants is to pitch at the highest level, however, I’m guessing a Japanese team would be willing to give him a shot, as rumored.

The Braves got a scare last night after first baseman Freddie Freeman was hit on the left wrist by a Hoby Milner fastball in the bottom of the eighth inning. It was doubly scary given that, less than a year ago, the same wrist was fractured when Aaron Loup plunked him last year, causing Freeman to miss over a month and a half.

Good news, though: the Braves just announced that Freeman’s X-rays are negative and that he’s day-to-day.

On the season, Freeman is batting .288/.468/.492 with two home runs, 12 RBI, and 12 runs scored in 79 plate appearances.
