FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal says the Indians "still could" add a position player this winter and free agent third baseman David Freese is among the options.
Cleveland is also displaying some amount of interest in Juan Uribe. Freese has struggled to build a market for himself this offseason even though his free agency is not tied to draft pick compensation. The 32-year-old posted a decent .743 OPS with 14 home runs and 56 RBI in 121 games last summer for the Angels. Giovanny Urshela is currently projected to open the 2016 season as the Indians' starter at third base and he is very good defensively, but his bat is still in the developmental stages.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Angels and David Freese "are said to be making progress" on a new contract.

There's no word yet on what the potential terms of a new deal would look like. Freese has hit an underwhelming .258/.322/.401 in his two years with the Halos, but the free agent market at third base is thin, making it sensible that the Angels would want to bring him back. The former World Series MVP will turn 33 next April, so this could be his last chance at a multi-year contract.

Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports that the Angels will not give David Freese a $15.8 million qualifying offer.

The Angels are interested in bringing Freese back, but it's not a surprise that they feel he isn't nearly worth $15.8 million The third baseman batted .257/.323/.420 with 14 homers for the Halos this season.

David Freese said Sunday that he would "absolutely" like to return to the Angels next season.

And it sounds like the Halos will try to work something out with the 32-year-old free agent third baseman. Freese had a nice season in Anaheim and there's not a ready-made replacement at the hot corner in that organization. "A lot of things have to happen on both sides," Freese said Sunday evening. "It’s a new experience for me. We’ll see what happens when the World Series is over, and go from there."

David Freese went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Sunday's win over the Mariners.

Freese launched a solo homer off Mariners starter Hisashi Iwakuma in the fifth inning. It would be his only hit in the contest. He's now homered in back-to-back game and is slashing .258/.320/.424 with 13 homers and 53 RBI. The numbers might not be particularly electric, but this has been the 32-year-old third-baseman's best overall season since 2012.

David Freese hit a go-ahead two-run double in the top of the eighth inning as the Angels rallied to beat the Astros 6-5 on Wednesday afternoon in Houston.

Freese thought he had popped out, but the ball banged off the short left field wall at Minute Maid Park and scored both Mike Trout and Collin Cowgill. It was the only hit of the game for Freese, who struck out twice and is batting just .254/.317/.406 in 389 at-bats this season. He still has a knack for clutch hits, and the Angels are still in the hunt for a postseason spot.

David Freese (finger) will join the Angels on Monday in Oakland and could be activated from the disabled list.

Freese has been playing in rehab games with Triple-A Salt Lake for the past week with no lingering discomfort in his right index finger. He suffered a non-displaced fracture of that finger back in late July. Angels third basemen have hit a combined .183 with two homers in 36 games with Freese on the shelf, so he should return to a starting gig.

David Freese (finger) will begin a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Salt Lake on Sunday.

Freese was able to throw a ball without any issues on Thursday and Friday, which was the last hurdle he needed to clear before appearing in live game action. He should be able to rejoin the Angels lineup before the end of the month.

David Freese (finger) threw with full finger pressure on the ball on Thursday for the second straight day.

Freese has been hitting for a while with no issues but only recently has been able to throw. He's nearing a rehab assignment and could have a shot to rejoin the Angels before the end of the month. It seems more likely, however, that they'll wait until rosters expand to activate him.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Tuesday that David Freese's (finger) rehab is going "slowly, but it’s moving in the right direction."

Freese threw Tuesday without pressure on his broken finger and the hope is that he’ll be able to throw with pressure by the end of the week. He's already missed a month of action but finally does appear to be making some progress. It seems unlikely that Freese will return before September.

Scioscia said Freese is making slow progress with his throwing program. He did take batting practice on Monday and said he felt "perfect," suggesting he may not be too far off from a rehab trip. Freese has been sidelined since July 23 after suffering a fracture of his right index finger.
