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.
Jun 25 - 7:38 PM

David Freese went 2-for-4 and knocked in a pair of runs versus the Rangers on Friday.

It was against Joe Saunders, so we're not sure if those RBI even count. But if they do, they were his first since June 4. It's unclear why the Angels are sticking with Freese, accounting for his complete lack of power and their tendency to remove him for defense late in games anyway. It's probably time they give Grant Green a try.
Jun 21 - 2:03 AM

David Freese had another rough night at the plate in Sunday night's loss to the Braves, going 0-for-4 with three strikeouts.

Freese's first season in Los Angeles hasn't gone quite as planned, as he's hitting a paltry .218/.301/.276 with just two homers and 15 RBI in his first 170 at-bats. He shouldn't be started in mixed leagues at this point.
Jun 15 - 11:44 PM

David Freese came up with a bases-loaded single to drive in two in Sunday's win over the Royals.

The single was Freese's lone hit in four at-bats, but it was a big one for the Angels to tie the game at 3-3. Freese is still looking for some consistency at the dish, as his line still sits at a paltry .217/.267/.292. He can't be relied upon outside of AL-only leagues until he starts driving the ball with more regularity.
May 25 - 7:21 PM

David Freese went 2-for-5 with a double, a run scored, and four RBI in a 9-3 win against the Astros on Tuesday.

The Angels activated Freese off the disabled list earlier in the day after he missed 17 days with a small fracture in his right middle finger. Freese's double bounced off the top of the wall in right center, almost going for his third homer of the year. The 31-year-old third baseman has collected six RBI twice, but the four RBI output was his most in 2014. Freese should be relegated to AL-only formats.
May 21 - 1:46 AM

Angels activated 3B David Freese from the 15-day disabled list.

Freese wound up missing just 17 days with a small fracture in his right middle finger. He homered twice on his three-game minor league rehab assignment at Triple-A Salt Lake but returns Tuesday to a brutal .202/.266/.286 major league batting line. The 31-year-old third baseman is not a good option in mixed fantasy leagues.
