Gonzalez said Freeman will also meet with former Cy Young winner Orel Hershiser, who was in Atlanta as a part of ESPN's broadcast team. Hershiser dealt with a similar problem during his career.
"[Hershiser] basically said, 'It's a process. He's got to be patient, he can't go through 12 pairs of contacts in one night. That isn't going to help,'" Gonzalez said.
Eric Hinske once again took Freeman's spot in the lineup. He was 1-for-10 in the previous three games Freeman missed.
