Things can change fast in the world of professional sport.

Last week Atlanta Braves' first baseman was left stranded in a snow storm, but today he has agreed a major new deal by his MLB franchise. 

As reported by Fox Sports Jon Morsi, the deal could be worth as much as $100 million.

It seems like Freeman is set to benefit from the current environment of large contract dealings in the wake of Masahiro Tanaka's record-breaking $155 million deal with the New York Yankees.

Freeman is currently in his first year of arbitration and a hearing was set for Feb. 11.

But various sources have confirmed the player has agreed a new deal with the Braves which would likely sign him several years into free agency.

The first basemen has a break out 2013 season with .319/ .396 /.501 stats and 23 home runs. This led to the player receiving All-Star honors and it seems Braves' general manager, Frank Wren, is keen to tie one of his top prospects to the franchise for several years to come.
