Freddie Freeman has interesting way to test bone spur in elbow

Freddie Freeman

Freddie Freeman has an interesting way of testing a troublesome bone spur that he has in his elbow.

The Atlanta Braves first baseman left Friday’s game against the Washington Nationals during the fourth inning with what was described by the club as “elbow soreness.”

Freeman has dealt with the bone spur for multiple years and has been able to play through discomfort in the past. Since the issue developed, Freeman has found that washing his hair serves as a test for how the spur will bother him any given day.

Freeman’s “good to go” proclamation was confirmed when his name appeared in the Braves’ lineup for Saturday afternoon’s game.

The spur has not been a big hindrance to Freeman so far this season. He’s played 148 of Atlanta’s 149 games and has posted a batting line of .302/.392/.566 with 32 doubles, 38 home runs, and 117 RBI.
