David Freese knocks in a run as a pinch hitter Saturday

David Freese was called upon to pinch-hit on Saturday against the Reds and singled in a run.

Fantasy Impact

Freese pinch-hit in the bottom of the sixth and came up with a ground ball single that scored Josh Bell and put the Pirates ahead by three. He’s been used more often as a bench bat lately, but still occasionally has been getting spot starts. He’s hitting . 262 with four home runs after a recent hot stretch in his past seven games. Without regular playing time, he is not worth the roster spot in your league.

David Freese collects a hit in Pirates' loss

David Freese went 1-for-4 with a single on Monday in the Pirates' loss.

Fantasy Impact

Freese got the start at third base on Monday in favor of Moran. He managed to get on base with a single in his five at-bats. He's hitting .245 through 46 games with four home runs this season. His limited playing time, low batting average and moderate power don't make him a valuable fantasy player to roster.

David Freese gets on base three times against the Dodgers

David Freese went 1-for-3 with a double and two walks, driving in two on Wednesday against the Dodgers.

Fantasy Impact

Freese had a very productive game, including a double in the bottom of the fourth that drove in two runs. Interestingly, he got the start at first base Wednesday over the slumping Josh Bell. The 35 year old journeyman has managed to be a completely serviceable league average player for the Pirates in his 41 games this season. Bell is clearly the favored player at first and Moran the same at third, but if Freese continues to produces, it’s not out of the question for him to earn more playing time. The Pirates have shown they will play the hot bat, such as with Austin Meadows, so this could develop into a position battle to pay attention to.

David Freese held hitless in Sunday’s loss

David Freese went 0-for-3 in the Pirates’ loss to the Cardinals on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Freese continues to be an average to slightly below average part-time player for the Pirates. He does not have any standout tools that can help you in a particular category. Rather, he provides league average power and a .250 average with no steals. Unfortunately, he doesn’t even get an opportunity to compile counting stats since he is mostly splitting time with Colin Moran at third base.

David Freese held hitless on Monday

David Freese went 0-for-3 with a strikeout against the Cubs in Monday’s loss.

Fantasy Impact

Freese got the start at third base on Monday instead of Moran. He was unable to produce at the plate in a night where the Pirates struggled mightily. Freese is hitting .247/.310/.442 on the season with four home runs in limited playing time, so he has managed to be a decent fill in for the Pirates. However, his hard hit percentage has dropped significantly this season, and an extremely high home run to fly ball ratio has masked his contact issues.
