ATLANTA — The Atlanta Braves have agreed to eight-year deal with first baseman Freddie Freeman that is worth about $125 million, a person familiar with the talks told The Associated Press on Tuesday. The person confirmed the agreement on condition of anonymity because the Braves haven't announced the deal, which is subject to a successful physical. Earlier Tuesday, outfielder Jason Heyward and the Braves agreed to a $13.3 million, two-year contract.
