Here in Flowery Branch the Falcons have made a move to boost their pass rush signing veteran Dwight Freeney Tuesday. He won’t arrive here until tomorrow, Hugh said “You want him to come out here and produce, the after affect of that is you hope others learn from him. He’s not going to be teaching classes, but he will lead by example.”
Matt Kemp made his Braves debut Tuesday night going 0 for 4 with two strikeouts in a 5-3 loss to the Pirates. Both teams meet again tonight with Rob Whelen making his major league debut for the Braves against Jeff Locke.
