Freddie Freeman is serious about playing third base when he returns to the Atlanta Braves.
He says he originally suggested the move, which would keep Matt Adams in the lineup at first base.
"I mentioned it and said I'd be willing to move over to third base to accommodate Matt, who's been pretty spectacular for us," Freeman said. "It really happened yesterday when I was walking to the field."
Freeman has been sidelined for more than a month with a broken wrist. He has played first base his entire Major League career.
"I said I'm completely on board with it, want to do it," he said. "We got to keep Matt's bat in the lineup, and I'll do anything to win. So this is what we came to."
