The best thing Freddie Freeman has going for him in the Rookie of the Year race is that he plays every day.
The Braves first baseman has played in nearly every game this season and is hitting a more than respectable .295.
He leads all National League rookies in hits, doubles, RBI, walks, average, on-base percentage and slugging percentage.
Clearly, Freddie Freeman has been the best rookie position player in the Senior Circuit.
As far as total contribution to the team, Freeman's impact cannot be overstated. He has provided the pop and consistency that the Braves have needed all season long. With the resurgence of Dan Uggla and the return of Brian McCann from the disabled list, look for Freeman's numbers to continue to rise.
