Braves' Freeman could play 3B upon DL return

The Braves could have a problem when Freddie Freeman returns from the DL, since he and hot-hitting Matt Adams both have primarily played first base in the majors. Atlanta, however, is considering playing Freeman at third base.

Braves' Colon to remain on DL with stiff back

Bartolo Colon's return to the Atlanta Braves' rotation has been put on hold, as manager Brian Snitker said Tuesday that the 44-year-old right-hander will remain on the DL a bit longer because of a stiff back.

Matt Adams has done a great job filling in for Freddie Freeman in Atlanta (slugging .658 with the Braves), but once Freeman returns there may not be room for him. With today's pitcher-heavy rosters, it's hard to carry a 1B-only bench player. How about a trade to the Astros, where Carlos Beltran hasn't been that good, or the Royals, who could use a DH?
