1B,3B - PIT
David Freese doubles home a run
Freese's strong spring continued Wednesday with a 5th inning RBI double that scored Hyun Soo Kim.
The 33-year-old Freese will have an opportunity to start with Jung-Ho Kang potentially tied up due to disciplinary action. He has put together a good line so far this spring, batting .350 with five RBIs over 20 at-bats. Freese could be a sneaky late round pick to fill out your roster.
David Freese signs extension with the Pirates
The Pittsburgh Pirates and David Freese have agreed to a two-year extension with a team option for a third year. The extension could be worth up to $22.5M.
With the Pirates this season, Freese has hit .276 with 12 home runs and 49 RBI in 107 games this season. Freese adds great depth to the Pirates roster but is a borderline fantasy player. Freese would have more value if he were to get regular at-bats. For now, Freese should be an injury fill it at best.
David Freese has multi-hit game in win over Cardinals
David Freese went 2-for-4 on the day, including his 16th double of the season, as the Pirates took care of the Cardinals 5-2.
Freese continues to be a valuable asset for both the Pirates and fantasy owners. His .296 BA and .832 OPS make him a solid start day in and day out.
David Freese homers in win
David Freese hit his third home run of the season as part of his 1-for-3 effort on Wednesday. Freese drove in two runs, scoring once himself and also walked in Wednesday's win.
Freese saw a slight reduction in playing time with the return of Jung Ho Kang, but he continues to get in the starting lineup considering his successful start to the season. While he does hold value in some season-long leagues, he's realistically a better option for DFS games in ideal matchups.
David Freese leading off on Tuesday
David Freese is batting leadoff for the Pirates on Tuesday against the Reds. It is Freese's first time batting from the leadoff spot.
The Pirates are facing Alfredo Simon today. Freese has almost no season-long value at this point, but makes an intriguing DFS option today. Bear in mind that Freese generally is more of a lefty-masher, but he could have some decent success against the right-handed Simon.
