Description: Angels third baseman David Freese is not in Monday's starting lineup against Houston.
Insight: Freese is off to an ugly start (.162, zero homers, two RBI) and will sit while Ian Stewart gets the start. Stewart has just one at-bat this season. A solid power guy in Colorado, he's yet to prove he can hit elsewhere.
 
3/25/2014 7:55:00 PM
Description: Angels third baseman David Freese is expected to return to the lineup Thursday after sitting out Tuesday with tightness in his quad, according to Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register.
Insight: Freese batted just .262 with nine home runs, 60 RBI and a 721 OPS last year with the Cardinals, down from .293 with 20 homers, 79 RBI and an .839 OPS the year before. He's 11-for-44 (.250) with 11 singles this spring.
 
11/22/2013 5:31:00 PM
Description: The Angels have acquired third baseman David Freese and reliever Fernando Salas from the Cardinals for Peter Bourjos and Randal Grichuk.
Insight: Freese, the 2011 ALCS and World Series MVP and a 2012 NL All-Star, hit just .262 with nine homers, 60 RBI and a .721 OPS in 138 games this past season before hitting under .200 in all three postseason series.
 
10/15/2013 5:17:00 PM
Description: St. Louis third baseman David Freese (calf) is in the lineup in Game 4 of the NLCS Tuesday against the Dodgers.
Insight: Freese left early in Game 3 due to right calf tightness but it wasn't a serious concern. The third baseman is only hitting .192 with one home run, four RBI and a .596 OPS in eight games this postseason.

Description: St. Louis third baseman David Freese exited Monday's Game 3 because of calf tightness. SOURCE: Bill Shaikin, Los Angeles Times
Insight: He went 1-for-2 with a single before leaving. Matt Carpenter is now at third base with Kolten Wong taking over for Carpenter at second. The injury isn't considered serious and Freese should be able to play tomorrow night in Game 4.
 
10/10/2013 9:46:00 AM
Description: David Freese got the Cardinals off to a good start Wednesday by bashing his seventh career postseason homer.
Insight: Say what you want about his regular season play but when it comes to the playoffs, few players in the league have been as reliable as Freese. He's now produced an absurd 1.001 OPS in 126 postseason at bats. Expect more of the same from Freese in the NLCS.
 
10/6/2013 11:14:00 AM
Description: Cardinals third baseman David Freese has never had much success against the Pirates left-hander Francisco Liriano - he's hitless in eight at-bats.
Insight: Freese's batting average dropped 31 points this season and his OPS 118 points. He's 2-for-6 in the first two games of the series, but this is an unfavorable matchup to be avoided.
 
10/3/2013 10:16:00 AM
Description: While Cardinals teammate Matt Carpenter has been terrific against A.J. Burnett in the past, third baseman David Freese has never had much success against the Pirates righthander.
Insight: Freese enters Thursday's contest with just one hit in 11 at bats against Burnett. After hitting .293 or better in three consecutive seasons, Freese slumped all the way to .260 in 138 games in 2013.
 
9/28/2013 9:56:00 AM
Description: St. Louis third baseman David Freese went 1-for-3 with a solo homer Friday against the Cubs.
Insight: Freese has really regressed this season, hitting .262 with nine homers, 60 RBI and a .721 OPS in 462 at-bats after batting .296 from 2009-12 and blasting 20 homers last year. However, fantasy owners in playoff leagues should not forget his epic 2011 postseason.
 
9/4/2013 12:32:00 PM
Description: Using St. Louis third baseman David Freese on Wednesday would be a waste of a lineup spot.
Insight: Freese, who has seen his playing time reduced since Kolten Wang's callup from Triple-A, is a pitiful .118 career hitter against Bronson Arroyo. Once a fantasy staple, Freese (.261, 6 HR, 50 RBI) is a fringe player nowadays.
 
8/26/2013 11:41:00 AM
Description: Cardinals third baseman David Freese is 7-for-13 (.538) with a home run and a 1.495 OPS versus Cincinnati starter Mike Leake.
Insight: Freese now finds himself in a timeshare with recent callup Kolten Wang. Freese (.265, 6 HR, 47 RBI in 109 games) was an All-Star in 2012 but this season he's been a disappointment. If he's in the lineup, he could be worth a flier.
 
Cold8/18/2013 1:21:00 PM
Description: Cardinals third baseman David Freese is out for Sunday's game against the Cubs.
Insight: Thanks to a 1-for-16 slump, Freese now finds himself in a timeshare with recent callup Kolten Wang. Freese (.265, 6 HR, 43 RBI in 103 games) was an All-Star in 2012 but this season he's been a disappointment. For now, he belongs on the waiver wire.
 
8/16/2013 4:29:00 PM
Description: St. Louis third baseman David Freese figures to have his playing time cut in half following Friday's promotion of prospect Kolten Wong.
Insight: According to FanGraphs, the 2011 NLCS and World Series MVP was worth 4.0 wins above replacement (WAR) last season, when he hit .293 with 20 homers and 79 RBI. This year, however, he has hit .269 with six homers, 43 RBI, a -13.3 UZR at third base and 0.2 WAR. He likely will only start against lefties going forward.
 
8/4/2013 9:40:00 AM
Description: St. Louis third baseman David Freese is 5-for-10 with a home run and a 1.445 OPS in his career against Reds starter Mike Leake.
Insight: Freese's production is significantly down across the board from last season, but at least he has a favorable matchup on Sunday.
 
8/2/2013 10:18:00 AM
Description: St. Louis third baseman David Freese is 1-for-15 (.067) in his career against Reds starter Bronson Arroyo with four strikeouts.
Insight: Freese's production is significantly down across the board from last season and this matchup doesn't figure to help.
 
7/30/2013 10:18:00 AM
Description: St. Louis third baseman David Freese is hitless in his career against Pittsburgh starter A.J. Burnett.
Insight: Freese's production is significantly down across the board from last season and this matchup doesn't figure to help. Avoid.
 
7/30/2013 1:53:00 AM
Description: St. Louis third baseman David Freese is hitless in his career against Pittsburgh starter A.J. Burnett.
Insight: Freese's production is significantly down across the board from last season and this matchup doesn't figure to help. Avoid. Latest update - Freese is not in the starting lineup for the first of two games on Tuesday night. Apparently manager Mike Matheny is seeing the same thing we are.
 
6/25/2013 9:47:00 AM
Description: St. Louis third baseman David Freese is a career .500 hitter in 10 at-bats versus Houston starter Lucas Harrell.
Insight: Freese's batting average is up for the second straight month, though his overall numbers are still below fantasy owners' expectations. he's hit just four homers this season after 20 last year and his OPS is 91 points below 2012 levels.
 
6/19/2013 6:51:00 PM
Description: St. Louis third baseman David Freese will get the night off Wednesday versus the Cubs.
Insight: Freese's batting average is up for the second straight month. He's hitting .359 in June after putting together a .299 average in May. He hit at a .163 clip during the season's opening month.
 
6/13/2013 1:13:00 PM
Description: Cardinals third baseman David Freese is getting a routine day of rest Thursday afternoon against the Mets.
Insight: Freese's 20-game hitting streak came to an end Wednesday night, so the team can afford to get him a day off without worrying about messing up his mojo.
