Latest Update Freese homers, drives in two in Angels win Sat Sep, 13, 02:06 AM
Big and strong, he has a power bat and good RBI ability. Also shows the ability to hit consistently for average. Tends to deliver in the clutch.
Flaws: : Possesses below-average speed. Needs to work on his walk/strikeout ratio more in order to maximize his run-producing output in the bigs.
Freese has picked up the pace of late, hitting .360 with two home runs and seven RBI over his last 25 at-bats. In his first season with the Angels Freese is now slashing .259/.323/.375 with eight home runs and 49 RBI through 424 at-bats, which has made him more of a AL-only play down the stretch. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Freese's three run home run came off starter Danny Salazar in the 5th inning of today's contest. This was his 7th long ball on the year, but his average still sits at .256. Freese is approaching 50 RBIs on the year but there are better corner infielders available for your lineup.Analyst: Colby Conway
Freese has been an underwhelming player this season, but he had a nice night at the plate on Thursday. Before tonight, he had gone hitless in his six previous games, so I'm not ready to call a hot streak just yet. He should only be viewed as an AL-Only option down the stretch.Analyst: David Kerr
Freese was given the day off Tuesday after being mired in an 0-for-17 stretch. He is also apparently unhappy with being the designated hitter instead of the starting third baseman. Gordon Beckham certainly isn't the answer, but Mike Scioscia will continue to play him while he is swinging a hot bat. We'll see how Freese responds to his one-day sit and how this might affect him moving forward.Analyst: Howard Bender
