Freeman and the Atlanta Braves have discussed whether his contract should include a guaranteed sixth year. With the possibility of him leaving, the Braves have been linked with Matt Olson and Anthony Rizzo as possible alternatives.

How ardently to seek a meeting of Freeman is a decision for the property and the main office, but the manager Brian Snitker he pointed to the Braves’ ability to overcome the losses of key players (most notably Ronald Acuña Jr. and Mike Soroka) last season:

But I’m not freaking out about it right now. Last year we lost player A and moved on. We lost player B, C, D, E, F, and we moved on. It’s what we do.”

I am a fan of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and all Mexican baseball in general. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover major events such as the Caribbean Series, LMB All Star, LMP (uninterruptedly since 2009), signatures of important players. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, although as a fan. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but I have baseball in my veins. Degree in Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS) , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and a reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I arrived at El Debate as a journalist reporter and it was almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to the radio providing my services at Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and a few days later, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. This is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
