David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Freeman popped his right knee on Tuesday while participating in a fielding drill on Tuesday. It isn't a major injury, like the one recently suffered by Oakland Athletics third baseman Scott Sizemore in a similar fashion. O'Brien did indicate, however, that the injury was "more than a mild strain" and that Freeman is expected to miss 1-2 weeks of Spring Training.

The unofficial, early word is that Freeman suffered a sprain. The Braves had already suffered an infielder injury to backup shortstop Jack Wilson.
