Freddie Freeman undergoes elbow surgery

The Atlanta Braves star first baseman, Freddie Freeman underwent arthroscopic right elbow surgery. Freeman had three fragmented loose bodies cleaned out of his elbow joint, as well as multiple bone spur formations that had developed in his elbow.

After putting together an MVP-caliber regular season, Freeman looked like a different player in the playoffs and now it all makes sense.

During the NLDS, Freeman was asked about his elbow and told reporters that his elbow was not bothering him. However, fans knew something was not right with the all-star first baseman, who arguably played his worst five-game stretch of his career in the NLDS. Freeman's -0.46 win probability added (WPA), was the lowest mark for a Braves batter during the NLDS.
