Freddie Freeman hopes to correct vision problems in offseason

Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Braves first baseman is considering lasik.

Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman is considering lasik eye surgery this offseason to correct a worsening vision problem, Braves beat writer David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal Constitution is reporting.

While he is yet to finalize a decision as to whether or not to go through with eye surgery, he has described his lingering vision issue as "frustrating" due to the discomfort of wearing and replacing contact lenses. Freeman began to notice vision problems this season during a series against the Colorado Rockies back in May.

Also of note is Freeman's left index finger, which is still sore from an injury sustained while sliding into second base against the Miami Marlins back in June. He plans to get more cortisone shots in the finger and rest it before resuming batting practice in January.

Through 147 games played in 2012, Freeman notched a .259 average with 23 home runs and 94 runs batted in.
