One of the biggest questions of the offseason is whether Freddie Freeman will be returning to the Atlanta roster for the 2022 season. Fans have made it clear that re-signing Freeman is top priority, and current Braves players are beginning to chime in.
Tyler Matzek, a reliever who played a big role in Atlanta’s postseason run, joined The Midday Show on Wednesday and expressed his thoughts on a Freddie Freeman deal.
“I trust that we’ll get this thing done,” Matzek said. “I think Freddie’s going to come back. I hope he does, at least. What I think he means to Atlanta is just so much,” he continued. “He’s been there, he’s won a World Series, he’s brought a title to the city, so I think that it’s time to repay him.”
We continue to wait for deals to be announced at the conclusion of the lockout.
