Freddie Freeman’s latest request proves he’s the ultimate competitor
Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Freddie Freeman is undoubtedly a dedicated player. His latest request proves he’s more dedicated than most.
Los Angeles Dodgers First baseman Freddie Freeman has always been someone who takes challenges head on and stands out from a talented team. Now he demands a big challenge that shows why he has had so much success.
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Freeman was clear the first baseman wanted to start every game until the Dodgers won the NL West.
Los Angeles is in a great place so far this season, and there’s a strong possibility that Freeman will get his time to rest sooner rather than later.
Dodgers: Freddie Freeman asks not to rest until NL West is won
The Dodgers sit very comfortably at the top of the NL West rankings as they entered Wednesday’s game against the Twins with a 16-game lead over the Padres in the division.
Los Angeles is one of the most diverse teams in MLB. They have big hitters and currently have the third best batting average in the league (.261), best on-base percentage (0.336), best slugging percentage (0.448), and best OPS (0.784). They have produced the second most runs (581) and the seventh most homers (140).
They are just as good with their pitching staff. They have the best ERA (2.87), the second best batting average of their opponent (0.215), and the best WHIP (1.06).
Freeman is a major contributor to their success. The veteran is batting .325/.401/.525 for a .926 OPS this season, his first with the Dodgers after helping the Braves capture the franchise’s first World Series since 1995 last year.
From his last request, it’s clear why he was able to help Atlanta reach such heights.
