The Angels are expected to tender a contract to David Freese before Tuesday night's deadline.
Freese batted just .260/.321/.383 with 10 home runs and 55 RBI in 134 games this past season for Anaheim while earning $5.05 million. The 31-year-old third baseman could command something close to $7 million in 2015 -- his final year of salary arbitration. Dec 1 - 3:20 PM

David Freese belted a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Royals.

Freese's blast in the fifth inning off of Jason Vargas tied things up for the Halos, but they eventually fell in extra innings. The longball was Freese's eighth in 49 career postseason contests. Iannetta also had a solo shot for the Angels, but those were their only two tallies of the night.
Oct 3 - 1:14 AM

David Freese (back) returned to the Angels lineup on Friday, going 1-for-4 in a loss to the Mariners.

Freese had been sidelined since Monday due to minor tightness in his mid-back. The issue is believed to be minor, and his absence was for precautionary reasons to get him healthy for the postseason.
Sep 27 - 4:59 AM

David Freese (back) remained out of the Angels' lineup Wednesday.

Freese is nursing some mid-back tightness. It's viewed as a minor injury, but the Angels are understandably playing it safe. Luis Jimenez is at third base Wednesday.
Sep 24 - 1:03 PM

David Freese is not in Tuesday's lineup due to minor mid-back tightness.

It's not seen as a big deal, so expect Freese to be back in there in a day or two. Gordon Beckham is at third base Tuesday.
Sep 23 - 7:10 PM

David Freese went hitless in a sixth straight start Wednesday against the Astros.

Freese has one RBI in three weeks, so he's due to keep losing playing time to Gordon Beckham as long as Beckham continues to produce. He's the weaker defender anyway.
Sep 4 - 2:33 AM

David Freese had a double in three at-bats in his return to action Thursday.

Freese didn't start Wednesday because of a sore patellar tendon, but it's not expected to be an issue going forward. He's hitting just .253/.320/.356 for the season but has been much better since the beginning of June.
Aug 8 - 4:18 AM

David Freese is out of the Angels' starting lineup on Wednesday due to a sore patellar tendon.

Freese is dealing with some soreness, but Angels manager Mike Scioscia said he could be available to pinch hit in the game. It doesn't appear to be the type of thing that will cause him to miss much significant time. John McDonald started at third base Wednesday in his absence.
Aug 6 - 7:17 PM

David Freese committed a ninth inning throwing error to allow the Dodgers to come away with a 5-4 win over the Angels on Tuesday.

The error was Freese's second of the night. He was throwing home on an Andre Ethier grounder, trying to nab Juan Uribe at the plate, but catcher Chris Iannetta couldn't handle the throw. Freese was 1-for-4 in the game and is slashing just .251/.320/.350 on the season.
Aug 6 - 2:08 AM

David Freese hit a go-ahead home run in the eighth inning to lead the Angels to a 2-1 win over the Tigers on Sunday.

Freese connected on a Joba Chamberlain pitch for his sixth home run of the year. It was his only hit in three at-bats on the day. The third baseman has improved his numbers with a strong July but is batting just .245/.321/.350 overall.
Jul 27 - 8:23 PM

David Freese belted a solo homer and drew a walk in Saturday's extra-innings loss to the Mariners.

Freese's solo blast off of Dominic Leone in the 12th inning cut the Seattle lead to one, but that's as close as the Halos got. Rather quietly, Freese is hitting .348/.405/.591 with three homers, seven doubles and 16 RBI over his last 20 games. His season line is still sitting at just .255/.328/.357, but he's worth using in deeper mixed formats while he's hot.
Jul 20 - 9:03 AM

David Freese is back in the Angels' lineup Monday.

Freese sat out Sunday's contest with a bruised left shin, but he's fine. The third baseman has heated up of late, batting .417/.462/.750 with a couple homers over his last 11 contests.
Jul 7 - 10:00 PM

David Freese is not in Sunday's lineup due to a bruised left shin.

The good news is that he's available to pinch-hit and is expected back in the lineup in a day or two. John McDonald is at third base Sunday in Freese's place.
Jul 6 - 1:53 PM

David Freese went 2-for-3 with a homer and a walk against the White Sox on Wednesday.

With a .292 average and 11 walks in 89 at-bats since the beginning of June, Freese is no longer looking like such a sieve offensively. Of course, he still has just three homers for the year, two of which come in April, so he's still not doing much of anything to help fantasy leaguers. However, he will continue to hold off Grant Green at this rate.
Jul 2 - 11:18 PM

David Freese missed Wednesday's game with a sore left elbow.

Freese was hit by a pitch in Tuesday's game, leaving him with some soreness. Grant Green started in his place on Wednesday, but manager Mike Scioscia said it's not a performance-based move. Still, Freese is hitting just .226/.305/.282 in 55 games this season, so his spot in the lineup isn't exactly written in stone, either.
