UPDATES & NEWS
Freddie Freeman went yard for the 7th time this season, a solo-shot, for his only hit in three at-bats to go with one walk in the losing effort to the Giants on Monday.
Although Freeman has been slumping of late, he is now the proud owner of a .302 average with seven home runs and 21 RBI through his first 142 at-bats. Monday night's home run was just his first since April 26, but is now sitting on a 20.3 AB/HR which would be a career high if he was able to keep up this pace. Fantasy owners have to be pleased with his production thus far as he continues to be one o the best first base options in the early going. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Angels have traded Josh Hamilton to the Texas Rangers.
The Angels were done with Hamilton after his relapse and following shenanigans, with the Angels acting very inappropriately considering the situation. He'll be sent to his former club, the Rangers, and there will not be a player coming back in the deal to the Angels. Hopefully a (sort of) fresh start with Texas will help Hamilton to bounce back.
