Freeman was hoping to be cleared to resume some baseball activities by the end of this week, and then begin a Minor League rehab assignment early next week. But it appears he will need to wait a little longer to begin his comeback.
Dr. Gary Lourie has been evaluating Freeman and providing anti-inflammatory injections on an every-other-day basis over the past week.
Freeman started feeling some wrist discomfort during the latter part of a June 13 win over the Mets. He played the remainder of that contest and remained in Atlanta's lineup for four more games before the pain became intolerable and forced him to end his Major League-high streak of 243 consecutive games played.
