McAlpin reflects on Freeman, promising trio

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Two of the most significant developments the Braves realized during Spring Training came courtesy of the cooperation of Freddie Freeman's wrist and the maturity displayed by the crop of highly regarded prospects who were in big league camp.

The video that accompanies this story includes a discussion MLB.com's Mark Bowman and Kevin McAlpin of the Braves Radio Network recently had about Freeman's wrist and the impressions made by Dansby Swanson, Ozzie Albies, Aaron Blair and some of the other prospects while they were in camp.

Concerns that Freeman's wrist would prove as bothersome as it did last year dissipated over the past few weeks. But the memories left by Swanson, Albies and Blair will leave Braves fans eagerly anticipating their arrival to the Major Leagues.
