Angels acquire David Freese


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/22/2013) The Angels and Cardinals have agreed to a deal that would have third baseman David Freese and outfielder Peter Bourjos swapping teams. The Cardinals will also acquire outfielder Randal Grichuk, while the Angels will get reliever Fernando Salas. 

Freese, 30, hit .262 with nine home runs and a career-worst .721 OPS in 2013. He played 138 games last year, partially limited by the late-season call-up of top prospect Kolten Wong, who pushed All-Star Matt Carpenter to third and Freese to the bench. Between August and September, Freese started just 46 games. 

A career .286 hitter, Freese hit 20 home runs in 2012 and has averaged about 26 doubles over the last two seasons. He will likely be the starter at third base for the Angels in 2014


Divide on David Freese-Peter Bourjos deal


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/21/2013) Though the Angels appear to be in talks with the Cardinals about acquiring third baseman David Freese, the Orange County Register reports that the Cardinals won't trade Freese straight-up for Peter Bourjos.

The Cardinals do have interest in Freese, but they're also targeting shortstop Erick Aybar.


Angels in on David Freese talks


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/21/2013) FOXSports.com reports that the Angels and Cardinals have discussed a possible David Freese deal. The Yankees and Marlins have also expressed interest in Freese this offseason.

The 2011 World Series MVP had a down performancein 2013, hitting .262 with nine homers in 462 at-bats and even losing his everyday role later in the year. He'll be a free agent after the 2015 season.


Marlins considering David Freese


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2013) The Marlins are deciding whether Cardinals third baseman David Freese is a realistic option to fill their vacancy at third base, MLB.com reports.

Freese made $3.15 million in 2013 while hitting .262/.340/.381 with nine home runs and 60 RBI in 462 at-bats. He's scheduled to reach free agency after the 2015 season.


Yankees in trade talks over David Freese


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(11/13/2013) According to the New York Daily News, the Yankees are discussing a deal that would bring them third baseman David Freese from the Cardinals. Freese had a disappointing season in St. Louis, batting .262 with nine home runs and 60 RBI.

Should the Cardinals trade Freese, they could move Matt Carpenter from second base to third base, freeing up second base for prospect Kolten Wong. Meanwhile, Freese could play third base for the Yankees in the event that Alex Rodriguez serves his 211-game suspension or is used primarily as a designated hitter.


David Freese misses big opportunity in Game 1 loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/23/2013) Cardinals third baseman David Freese went 1 for 4 with an error but couldn't come through in a bases-loaded opportunity as the Cardinals fell to the Red Sox in Game 1 of the World Series, 8-1.

Freese came to the plate with the bases loaded and one out in the fourth inning but missed the opportunity to key a much-needed rally by grounding one weakly back to starter Jon Lester, who started a 1-2-3 double play to end the inning. He also struck out twice in the game and committed a throwing error in the seventh inning.


David Freese back in action


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2013) Cardinals third baseman David Freese, who injured his calf in Game 3, was back in the starting lineup for Game 4 of the National League Championship Series against the Dodgers Tuesday night.

Freese failed to make much of an impact at the plate as he went 0 for 3 with a strikeout in a 4-2 victory. He has just three hits over his last 25 postseason at-bats.


David Freese could start Game 4


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/15/2013) Cardinals third baseman David Freese has shown improvement, and could start Game 4 of the NLDS, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

While lineups have yet to be released, Freese has reportedly passed all of his tests, and may have improved enough to play. Freese injured his calf during Game 3. He was removed from the game shortly after sustaining the injury.


Cardinals expect David Freese to be available Game 4


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/15/2013) Cardinals third baseman David Freese should be available "for something" Game 4 against the Dodgers, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Freese injured his calf during Game 3, but the issue doesn't appear to be serious. General manager John Mozeliak said the injury was not severe enough to remove Freese from the NLCS roster. While Freese is unlikely to start Game 4, Mozeliak said he would be surprised if Freese wasn't used during the game. "Based on what (the medical staff) said, I’d be surprised if he couldn’t do something," Mozeliak said.

Freese is hitting just .192 during the playoffs.


David Freese leaves Game 3 with calf tightness


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/14/2013) Cardinals third baseman David Freese had to leave Monday's Game 3 of the National League Championship Series at Los Angeles due to right calf tightness. Freese appeared to suffer the injury fouling off a pitch, MLB.com reports.

Freese remained in the game initially and singled during the at-bat in which he suffered the injury. He was eventually removed for a pinch-runner.

Freese is likely to be available to play in Game 4. Freese is hitting .200 in the NLCS and .192 in the postseason overall.

David Freese smashes two-run homer in Game 5 win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/9/2013) Cardinals third baseman David Freese connected on a two-run homer to start the scoring Wednesday as the Cardinals would eventually beat the Pirates 6-1 in Game 5 of the National League Division Series.

Freese entered Game 5 hitless in nine at-bats over the previous three games and finished the series with just three hits in 16 at-bats, but he made his hits count, driving in two runs in Game 1 and another two runs on Game 5's homer. Freese now has seven home runs in 126 career postseason at-bats.


David Freese out Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2013) Cardinals third baseman David Freese is not in the team's starting lineup Wednesday against the Reds.

Freese will be replaced by Matt Carpenter at third while Kolten Wong starts at second. Freese is hitting .261/.338/.371 in 394 at-bats. 


David Freese back in the lineup


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2013) Cardinals third baseman David Freese is back in the lineup Tuesday against the Brewers.

Freese has not played much after Kolten Wong's promotion, but was expected to start Tuesday. He's hitting .267/.345/.385 in 356 at-bats. 


David Freese expected to start the next two games


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2013) Cardinals third baseman David Freese has seen his playing time dwindle with Kolten Wong in the majors, but he should play the next two games, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch .

Freese is expected to get the start against Kyle Lohse Tuesday. Freese has five hits in nine at-bats against Lohse, which may have fueled the move. He's also expected to get the nod against Tom Gorzelanny Wednesday.

Freese is hitting .267/.345/.385 in 356 at-bats. 


David Freese now fighting for at-bats


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/16/2013) David Freese was out of the lineup Friday at the Cubs, and it wasn't just a routine day off. He was replaced by top prospect Kolten Wong, who got the call from Triple-A Memphis earlier that day.

Wong is a second baseman, as is 2013 breakout Matt Carpenter. But Carpenter began his career as a third baseman and manned that position Friday. With Freese struggling at the plate this year, the Cardinals might actually prefer that arrangement going forward.

Freese is a hometown hero and was a legitimate middle-of-the-order hitter last year, so my guess is the Cardinals wouldn't just turn the job over to Wong and never look back. But if Wong lives up to his potential as sort of a speedier Matt Carpenter, he'll force his way into regular playing time, making Freese the clear odd man out.

Of course, Wong living up to his potential right away is far from a given, so all is not lost for Freese owners. But in anticipation of him losing at-bats, I now rank him 27th at third base.


Ending home run drought fails to spark David Freese


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/15/2013) Since ending his home run drought at 32 games Aug. 4, Cardinals third baseman David Freese has been mired in an offensive slump. Freese is batting .214 (6 for 28) with one double, two RBI, three walks and six strikeouts in his last nine games.

Freese's nine-game slide comes on the heels of him batting .500 (7 for 14) with one home run, four doubles and seven RBI in his first four August games.
