Freddie Freeman went 3-for-4 with one RBI, a run scored and a walk against the Cubs on Friday.
Freeman has really turned it on of late going 8-for-15 (.533 BA) over his last four games resulting in three doubles and two RBI. He is now the proud owner of a .321 average with six homers and 20 RBI through 131 at-bats while continuing to get on base at a high clip (.396 OBP). Although his power stroke has been absent of late, he has managed to produce in other areas making him one of the better options to own at the first base position. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
The Rangers released Ryan Ludwick on Sunday.
Ludwick was notified a couple days back that he would not be making the big-league team and was allowed to search for another team. He has struggled in Spring Training and hasn't been able to get over the .700 OPS mark the last two seasons. The Rangers will look internally to create outfield options for the 2015 season.
