LAKELAND, Fla. – Freddie Freeman returned from the World Baseball Classic and rejoined the Braves lineup Wednesday, now manager Brian Snitker hopes shortstop Dansby Swanson’s return isn’t far behind.

Swanson has been out since March 4 with tightness in his back and side, a move the Braves said was strictly precautionary.

What Swanson initially indicated might be a one-week absence has stretched to 11 days. With opening day in 2 1/2 weeks, the rookie has played in six Grapefruit League games and has 16 at-bats (and seven hits, just one off the Braves’ lead before Wednesday).

“He’s doing everything now. He’s hitting and everything and feels great,” Snitker said before Wednesday’s game at Lakeland.

MIAMI —

Through the upheaval of a franchise under reconstruction, they emerged as weight-bearing beams to the Braves’ future. On Saturday, though, Julio Teheran and Freddie Freeman found themselves facing each other as adversaries for the first time, across the international divide of the World Baseball Classic.

Give this one to Colombian over the temporary Canadian.

Pitching five strong innings, an uncommonly fiery Teheran helped Colombia (1-1 in WBC first-round pool play) to a 4-1 victory over Canada (0-2).

As the winning pitcher in Colombia’s first-ever WBC victory, Teheran was a major player in a small bit of his nation’s baseball history. Yet, out of character, he refused requests to speak to the media afterward.

As for the game within the game between teammates, that essentially was a draw.

After appearing fidgety and uncomfortable on the mound in the first inning — giving up a walk and two singles to three of the first four Canadians he faced — Teheran settled in impressively from there. He retired the next 13 in a row, getting more efficient by the inning to squeeze five innings from this outing (there is a 65-pitch limit in the WBC first round).

One of those early hits was a Freeman single ripped past the Colombian first baseman to score Canada’s only run.

“It was definitely a little weird seeing him from the batter’s box,” Freeman said.

“He went first pitch in (edging Freeman off the plate), and then I thought he was going to try and throw some things by me. But he went 1-0 change-up, and I was able to reach out and hit it into right field.”

His teammate on every day but this then helped out his pitcher a little bit. Not exactly Donovan Bailey on the base paths — the momentum-challenged first baseman has 19 career major league stolen bases — Freeman was thrown out trying to steal second.

“I thought I was safe. He’s a 1.7 (seconds) to home plate. Trying to get two guys in, trying to put some pressure on them. Obviously the call didn’t go our way,” Freeman said.

Freeman would have dropped in another single in his other at-bat vs. Teheran had not the Colombians positioned their third baseman in shallow right field in an extreme shift against the pull-hitting left-hander. Overall, Freeman ended the day 2-for-4, his other hit a single when he barely beat out the throw of that pesky third baseman playing on the opposite side of the diamond.

He had no doubt that he would be well-scouted, given the identity of Colombia’s starter. “Julio’s on that team, so it didn’t surprise me,” Freeman said. “I’ve never been shifted that big.”

For his five innings of work — 61 pitches — Teheran allowed but the single run, two hits, striking out three and walking one. Striking out former Brave Pete Orr to end the fifth inning, Teheran let loose a big fist pump and a loud shout, demonstrating considerably more emotion than he usually would expend this time of spring.

The motivation for the two Braves came from different places. Freeman, a Californian, chose his team as a tribute to his late Canadian-born mother. For Teheran, this appearance was all about country.

Only 16 when the Braves drafted him, Saturday represented his first opportunity to play wearing Colombia’s colors. “I’m really excited. It’s a great honor. It’s the biggest pride,” he said back at Braves camp before leaving for the WBC. “When I put my jersey on I’m going to feel the energy.” Teheran wore that energy on his sleeve Saturday.

The anticipation was high for both parties. For weeks leading to Saturday’s game, Freeman and Teheran bantered back and forth inside the Braves clubhouse at the Disney complex.

Well, Freeman mostly.

“Just making fun. We’re both excited,” Teheran said.

“Yeah, I do (dish out the majority of the smack),” Freeman said earlier in the week. “I’m just hoping if all goes well I’ll get two doubles off him and, like, four RBI. Then I could really have the upper hand on him all year.”

Didn’t quite work out that way.

No, for whatever weight one afternoon in the WBC will carry, Teheran can bring it to bear against his first baseman for as long as he chooses.

2:18 p.m Tuesday, March 7, 2017 Atlanta Braves


BRADENTON, Fla. – The Braves deployed another prospect- and backup-laden lineup Tuesday for a road game against the Pirates, their 11th Grapefruit League game and the fifth in a seven-game span requiring a bus ride of more than an hour each way. Two games were 2 ½-3 ½ hours each way.

That was why the Braves had no player with more than 19 at-bats before Tuesday, when 62 major leaguers had at least that many. Of the 109 players in the Grapefruit League and Cactus League with at least 18 at-bats, the Braves had two, center fielder Ender Inciarte and bench candidate Micah Johnson.

Inciarte and Freddie Freeman played a lot in their last couple of games before leaving the Braves over the weekend to join their respective World Baseball Classic teams – Canada for Freeman, Venezuela for Inciarte – in a tournament that could keep them away from the Braves for a week or more, depending on whether their teams advance out of the first round.

Spring training is nearly a week longer than usual this year because of the WBC, and the extra time in camp is why Braves manager Brian Snitker was fine with letting veteran players (and a few others) skip most if not all early road trips.

The road schedule gets more reasonable soon and Snitker said the Braves, who had two wins in 10 games before Tuesday, would soon begin taking more of their projected lineup regulars to road games. After Tuesday, the Braves have only one road trip of more than an hour in the next nine days, and that’s an approximate 75-minute bus ride to Clearwater to face the Phillies.

“Even by the end of the week, some guys have got to go (on trips), that’s just the way it is,” he said during pregame batting practice Tuesday in Bradenton. “It’s not an easy schedule to navigate. Guys with a lot of service time, you try not to have them travel three hours. Today we’ve got half the squad here. I mean, you lose two (position players to WBC), we’re just kind of bare-bones anyway.

“But yeah, you look at the schedule, it’s good because now we start to play the Tigers quite a bit, which is good because it’s an easy trip (the Tigers’ are in Lakeland, a half-hour from Braves camp) and just kind of keep everybody on schedule. And, too, I look at the at-bats and everybody’s right where they should be (at this point of spring) anyway. There’s nobody getting slighted even with all of this. Everybody’s getting plenty.”

Snitker pointed out that in a typical spring the Braves would only be 3-5 games into their Grapefruit League schedule, so having just 10-15 at-bats at this point wasn’t a concern. The Braves don’t leave Florida for another three weeks until after a March 29 game against the Yankees, and they have one final spring-training game against the Yankees March 31 at new SunTrust Park in Cobb County before opening day April 3 against the Mets in New York.

The only projected starters in the lineup Tuesday were second baseman Brandon Phillips and third baseman Adonia Garcia, after catcher Kurt Suzuki was the only one on Sunday’s long trip to Fort Myers to face the Red Sox.

The Braves were off Monday, one of two off days in the schedule this spring (there is normally just one). With three weeks to go, there is still time for Braves regulars to get a minimum of 45-50 at-bats.
