Dodgers News: Freddie Freeman Working to Find Power Stroke
Ever since his second year in the MLB, Freddie Freeman has made a name for himself as one of the best heavy hitters. His first full season with the Los Angeles Dodgers saw him bomb 21 home runs while slashing .325/.407/.511. Multiple Silver Slugger awards have found their way to the 33-year-old.
On a current Dodgers roster that is much younger than usual, Freeman finds himself as not only one of the remaining stars but also one of the only veterans. Even though LA parted ways with a good amount of talent over the offseason, many analysts still paid their respects to them as contenders because he remains with them.
We are currently eight games into the 2023 season and even though Freeman has still been very productive at the plate garnering 11 hits in 30 at-bats, the home runs have not been stacking up quite yet as he has only connected on one thus far. History shows us they are bound to come eventually and Freeman himself revealed that he’s been doing everything in his power to start slugging again.
“Every homer is alright. I don’t care where it goes,” said Freeman. “I’ve been working to try to find it again. I’m working a lot in the cage with RVS [Robert Van Scoyoc], Aaron [Bates] and JT [Watkins]. Just trying to stay up through the middle. I’ve been kind of topping some balls to the right side, so good start to the road trip.”(Via Sportsnet LA)
Freeman has able to make the most of pitches even without knocking them out of the park. He’s known for being able to turn even the worst of throws into hits and I’m fully confident he’ll get back in his groove soon.
Will Smith and Trayce Thompson are taking care of business for him right now in the meantime. They both lead the Dodgers in home runs so far with three each.
