Atlanta Braves manager Brian Snitker said he’s not “frightened” about the possibility of losing Freddie Freeman in freelancing.
Once the MLB lockdown is over (whenever it happens), there’s bound to be a frenzy of free agency deals ahead of the 2022 season. One of the big names available is Atlanta Braves first team athlete Freddie Freeman, who recently won the World Series. Braves fans are certainly hoping Freeman will return to the team, but at this stage, who knows if that will happen.
In an interview with The Athletic, coach Brian Snitker mentioned the possibility of losing Freeman to another team and said that while he wanted him back, he did “Don’t worry about it right now.“The question is, should he?
Can Freddie Freeman Comment Brian Snitker’s Mistake?
Losing Freeman will be very difficult for the Braves, especially the fan base. Did Freeman accept Snitker’s comments in the wrong way? Who knows. In the end, it is up to them to decide which team to sign the first base with. And that won’t happen until the locking is over.
As for the deal that Freeman can command in free agency, Project Spotrac he earned a market value of $27.1 million per year for 5 years. Have a team such as the New York Yankees and the Los Angeles Dodgers, who were in demand from the start, and Freeman is undoubtedly the top player available in his position.
What if the Braves lost Freeman in freedom? A recent report from The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal indicates that the Braves have access to Oakland Athletics related to the transaction for Matt Olson, a native of Atlanta, before the lockdown. Olson has one more year as a referee for the 2023 season before becoming a free agent. Given Olson’s age (27) and his contract situation, that could cost the Braves a lot in terms of prospects/players in a deal and a new deal.
With so much uncertainty, there’s really no point for Snitkers, Braves or fans to fret right now. All people can really do is wait for the MLB locking to come to an end.
