David Freese (hamstring) is not in the Angels starting lineup on Saturday.
This was expected as Freese was a late scratch Friday. The Angels are calling him day-to-day and will likely evaluate him again over the weekend, but for now Ian Stewart will man the hot corner for the Halos. Freese owners may want to take notice of the fact that Stewart is 5-for-10 with a home run, four RBI and three runs scored over his last three games and was considered a solid power-prospect when he played for Colorado. He struggled with his plate discipline and ended up with the Cubs and now the Angels. Should things have clicked for him, Freese could be in trouble if he misses too much time.
