Hugmaster Freddie Freeman appears on the verge of signing a $100 million extension with the Atlanta Braves. Terms of the deal are yet unknown, but this news comes on the same day that Jason Heyward inked a 2-year extension with the club worth $13.3 million.
With Chipper Jones, Tim Hudson and Brian McCann all gone, this team truly belongs to the young fellas. In fact, the team has only one pitcher and four position players on its 40-man roster over the age of 30. Having avoided arbitration with Freeman and Heyward, the team must now look to extend the best closer in baseball, Craig Kimbrel.
Freeman's been having an enormous week on the internet, after having previously been "rescued" by Chipper Jones during Atlanta's snow storm.
UPDATE: The deal is being reported at 8 years and $135 million.
