Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman partially dislocated his kneecap yesterday. Which sounds utterly horrifying. It hurts just to type those words. First reports had him missing a couple of weeks.
Well, Freeman showed up to camp this morning without crutches and said that he was feeling much better. Still sore, but he hopes to get back into action relatively soon and doesn’t expect to miss much time. It’s not clear when, but the suggestion is days as opposed to weeks.
Which, considering he’s one of the, like, three guys on the team who can hit a little, might be helpful.
