1BAtlanta Braves
October 21, 2020
The Braves are expected to begin preliminary discussions with Freeman regarding a contract extension this offseason, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports. "[Freeman is] someone we plan on and expect to have as a Brave for a long time," president of baseball operations Alex Anthopoulos said Tuesday. "I know he plans on that as well. When that time comes, hopefully, it will be the first time you hear about it. Like with any contract, we're going to work real hard to keep that quiet, because we don't want daily questions of the players, manager and coaches. It just makes it hard to get deals done."
