Latest Update David Freese went 1-for-3 with a double, two RBI and a run scored in the Angels victory on Tuesday night. Wed Aug, 13, 01:15 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.
While most people will simply stop listening after hearing nine-game hit streak, let's keep it in perspective and point out that he's had just one hit in each game -- 9-for-28 (.321) -- and has just five RBI and two runs scored in that span. It's not that we can't appreciate what he's done, it's that he's basically been batting average help only during this streak and is still just a .255 hitter on the year. Just keep it in perspective, that's all.Analyst: Howard Bender
John McDonald is getting the start at third base Wednesday. Freese is available off the bench if needed to pinch hit so his stay out of the lineup could be short lived. Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
The home run was just the sixth of the season for Freese, but three of them have come in the month of July where he is hitting over .280 with 13 RBI. Freese's improved overall production this month should provide fantasy owners with a little more confidence in using him as a corner infield option.Analyst: Michael Pichan
David Freese hit a bottom of the 12th inning home run, his fifth of the year, but it was not enough as the Angels came out on the short end of their second extra-inning game in two days against the Mariners with both games ending in a score of 3-2 and the Angels winning the first one. As for David it looks like the early season freeze is finally over as he is hitting .356 with three home runs in 14 games this month making him worth owning, at least while he is hot, in most formats.Analyst: Michael Pichan
