Freese is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Braves. Freese has just three hits this month (3-for-26) since returning from the disabled list, so he'll head to the bench to try and regather himself. Josh Harrison will slide over to third base for the contest, opening up a spot for Alen Hanson to start at second base.
Freese went 2-for-3 with a solo homer, a walk and two runs in Saturday's win over the Phillies. Freese launched his fourth bomb of the season to break a 1-1 tie in the fourth inning of a winning effort. This is just the second time in seven games that he's collected a hit since returning from the disabled list on May 12, but he's been a useful fantasy option this year with his current .273/.374/.468 slash line.
Freese is out of the lineup Thursday against the Nationals. Freese has started four of the last five games at third base, but has collected just one hit over that stretch, bringing his batting average down to .271. Josh Harrison will get the nod at the hot corner in his stead, while Alen Hanson mans the keystone.
Freese is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks. Though he was able to start the Pirates' past two games after being activated from the disabled list Friday, Freese will get the day off ahead of the afternoon tilt against Robbie Ray the Diamondbacks. Josh Harrison will draw the start at third base, with Gift Ngoepe taking Harrison's spot at the keystone.
Freese (hamstring) was activated from the 10-day DL on Friday. The Pirates' lineup for Friday is still pending but Freese will presumably reclaim his role as the starter at third base, pushing Josh Harrison back to second base. Freese hit .321/.418/.536 with three homers and more walks (10) than strikeouts (eight) in 18 games before suffering the hamstring injury.
