Freddie Freeman Named National League Player Of The Week

Freddie Freeman got off to a bit of a slow start to begin the 2012 campaign, but the young first baseman really turned it on last week against the Mets and Diamondbacks. Despite some tough competition from Matt Kemp, who Freeman and the Braves will face this week, the 22-year-old slugger was named the National League's Player of the Week.

Atlanta went 5-2 last week and Freeman played a key role in every game. We have a bit more on his accomplishment after the jump.

According to an official release from MLB, Freeman batted .478 with three homers, five doubles and 14 RBIs last week. His slugging percentage? A cool 1.087. His best game came on Thursday night in Arizona, when he hit two homers and drove in a total of five runs as the Braves won 10-2.

A big congratulations to Freddie for his work this past week. I'm sure this won't be the last time the young slugger takes home Player of the Week honors in his career.
