Freddie Freeman has recorded 14 RBI

Freeman might like his new spot in the batting order. After being moved out of the No. 2 hole in the lineup, Freeman will now be batting third for the Dodgers. That means he'll be hitting behind Mookie Betts and Shohei Ohtani.

This spring, Freeman leads the Dodgers with 14 RBI. Freeman has had back-to-back seasons of 100-plus RBI, and he'll be well on his way toward shattering his previous career-high of 121 ribbies in 2019.

With two former MVPs setting the table ahead of him, Freeman is going to have plenty of chances to drive in runs in 2024. Freeman led the NL in hits in three of the past four seasons, and was the league-leader in doubles the past two seasons. Having two of the best hitters in the game hitting ahead of him will see Freeman put up ridiculous numbers in 2024. His 14 RBI in 13 games this spring are an indicator of things to come.

Shohei Ohtani is slugging .909

What did you expect from Ohtani in a Dodgers uniform? Whatever your expectations may have been heading into the season, it's probably safe to double them. Ohtani has been hitting for contact and power this spring.

Ohtani was 11-for-22 before heading off to South Korea for the Seoul Series and had two home runs to go along with a .909 slugging percentage. Only four players with 20 or more at-bats have a higher slugging percentage than Ohtani this spring.
