Dodgers News: Freddie Freeman Sits Out First Time This Season

Being durable comes as a luxury in any professional sports league with the notion knowing the best ability of a player is availability. Despite the injuries that have haunted the Dodgers all season long, part of their success comes from some of their top players being available every single game in Freddie Freeman and Trea Turner

Mookie Betts is not too far behind, appearing in 123 games this season, but all three have something in common ahead of Wednesday’s game against the Diamondbacks. All three will be sitting out from the game. 

Turner had missed one game prior to this, and mentioned about the pride he takes in playing each game alongside Freeman, but Freeman now gets to feel the pain Turner felt missing his first game. Freeman takes pride in playing in each game so to be a fly in the room when Freeman was told he’d miss his first game of the season would be a spectacle of its own. 

Durability is a luxury, but Freeman has been blessed throughout his career to be able to play in as many games as possible. Freeman has played in 147 games in a season eight times throughout his career including all 162 games in two of those seasons. 

It’s clear Freeman will do pretty much whatever it takes to be able to go out every single night, but he also understands the nature of the game. Freak injuries happen all the time and the Dodgers need him for a deep postseason run. 

It will be interesting to see how many games Freeman will miss heading into the postseason, but being the true team player and great guy Freeman is he will continue to take each game one day at a time.
