Not only that, but he seems to be completely locked in at the plate in their series against the Cincinnati Reds.
Today, in their series finale, he has hit a two-run homer as the Dodgers lead 8-1.
The home run came in the top of the third inning off of Hunter Greene.
Bobby Nightengale Jr. tweeted some insane stats regarding Freeman’s recent performance against Cincinnati, revealing that the veteran slugger now has 13 RBI seven games against the Reds, while the Reds themselves have scored a total of just 13 runs.
Freddie Freeman has 13 RBI in seven games against the Reds this season after his two-run homer off Hunter Greene. The Reds have totaled 13 runs in those games.

This is an insane stat.
Sometimes when you look at another team’s jersey, you get locked in.
And it’s hard to take a hitter out of his zone when he’s locked in.
This seems to be the case with Freeman against the Reds.
He’s dialed in and is tearing their pitching staff apart
This is what the Dodgers brought him in to do.
He’s in Los Angeles to strengthen that lineup and to make the opposing pitchers work hard to try and get him out.
Given recent stats, it’s hard to imagine the Reds wanting to pitch to him anymore at this point.
He’s just locked in.
He’s been able to find the Reds’ weak spot and exploit it.
So far, he’s been a bargain for the Dodgers.
His power numbers are a little down, as he’s only hit eight homers to this point, but he’s hitting .301 with 44 RBI and an .876 OPS in 266 at-bats this season.
We’ll see if he’s got any more tricks up his sleeve as the game between the Dodgers and Reds reaches the later stages.
