David Freese was found to have a fracture in his right thumb after being hit by a pitch in Wednesday's game.

The Angels didn't give a timetable for his return, but 4-6 weeks is the likely starting point. They'll probably recall Kyle Kubitza to fill in at third base. The team's need for a bat just got a little more urgent, and it'd be great if that bat were able to fill in at third base and then slide into the outfield or the DH spot once Freese returns.

David Freese left Wednesday's game against the Twins after being hit by a pitch on the right hand.

Freese was hit by a Mike Pelfrey pitch and was replaced by Taylor Featherston. Freese has twice in his career missed time after being hit on the hand or finger by a pitch, so it's certainly something to be concerned about. The Angels should provide more information on his injury following the game.
Jul 22 - 11:32 PM

David Freese finished 1-for-4 with a three-run home run, helping the Angels easily take game one of a doubleheader on Monday by an 11-1 margin.

Freese added unnecessary offense, as he clubbed a three-run home run in the fourth inning against Neil Ramirez to make it an 11-1 game. The third baseman last homered on June 16. Freese has 11 round-trippers on the year along with 42 RBI and a .240/.308/.401 triple-slash line.
Jul 20 - 8:29 PM

David Freese is not in the Angels starting lineup for Thursday's series opener against the Mariners.

It's nothing more than a routine day of rest for the veteran third baseman. Taylor Featherston will start in his place and bat ninth against Felix Hernandez and the Mariners.
Jul 9 - 8:42 PM

David Freese is not in the Angels starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Athletics.

Jun 20 - 2:10 PM

David Freese went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run Tuesday as the Angels handed the Diamondbacks a loss.

Freese drilled a two-run home run off of Randall Delgado in the eighth inning, boosting the Angels' lead to 4-1. He's been on a hot streak lately, batting .322/.394/.525 in his last 17 ballgames. On the season, Freese has 10 home runs, 34 RBI, and a .241/.296/.434 batting line.

David Freese (hamstring) will return to the Angels starting lineup on Saturday.

He has been held out since leaving Tuesday's game with a hamstring injury. Kyle Kubitza, who has benefited from the additional playing time will return to a reserve role.
Jun 12 - 7:04 PM

David Freese (hamstring) is out of the Angels' starting lineup again on Thursday evening.

Freese was held out of the lineup Wednesday after leaving Tuesday's game with tightness in his right hamstring. He was able to pinch-hit on Wednesday night, which is a good indication the injury isn't too serious. Kyle Kubitza is starting at third base Thursday in the Angels' series finale against the Rays.
Jun 11 - 2:29 PM

David Freese struck out as a pinch-hitter Wednesday in the Angels' loss to the Rays.

Freese was held out of the starting lineup due to tightness in his right hamstring. The discomfort drove him from Tuesday's game and he is considered day-to-day.
Jun 11 - 8:37 AM

David Freese left Tuesday's game against the Rays with a tight right hamstring.

Freese admitted that the hamstring had been bothering him a bit of late. He might miss a few games but doesn't anticipate requiring a trip to the disabled list.
Jun 9 - 10:34 PM

David Freese had a two-run homer and an RBI double against the Blue Jays on Thursday.

Freese had been 0-for-6 against R.A. Dickey and his knuckleball in his career, but he got a hold of a couple tonight. He's hit three homers in six games, and he's up to eight for the season. Less impressive are his .233 average and 37/9 K/BB ratio in 150 at-bats.
May 21 - 9:46 PM

David Freese will serve as the designated hitter Tuesday against the Blue Jays.

Freese gets a bit of a rest this way while Taylor Featherson will start at third base. Matt Joyce is starting in left field while Chris Iannetta behind the plate after a big game on Monday. Kole Calhoun remains in the cleanup spot.

David Freese homered in the ninth inning in a failed attempt at a comeback in Monday's loss to the Mariners.

Freese was 0-for-2 with a walk coming into the at-bat against Fernando Rodney. He drove a Rodney offering over the fence in centerfield to reduce the Angels' deficit to 3-2. The third baseman has five home runs already after hitting 10 total throughout the 2014 season. Freese also has 19 RBI and a mediocre .220/.262/.420 triple-slash line.
May 5 - 12:53 AM

David Freese hit his fourth homer versus the Rangers in Friday's win.

It was a two-run shot off Keone Kela. Freese had just 10 homers in 134 games last year and nine in 138 games in 2013, so this has been quite the early outburst from him. We still wouldn't suggest picking him up in mixed leagues.
