Freiman was released by the Nationals organization on Thursday, Kevin Brown of ESPN reports. Freiman was acquired from Atlanta just before the start of the season but failed to catch on at Triple-A Syracuse. In 26 at-bats, Freiman registered just four hits while striking out 10 times. The 29-year-old will now look to catch on with another club on a minor league deal.
The Nationals acquired Freiman from the Braves in exchange for Tyler Moore on Sunday. After combining for 277 at-bats with the Athletics in 2013 and 2014, Freiman contended with a back injury early on last season and never made a major league appearance, eventually losing his spot on the 40-man roster on July 2. One week after his release in December, he landed a deal with the Braves, yet his spring was again underwhelming, as he posted a .120/.267/.240 line in 25 at-bats. Expect the first baseman to act as organizational depth to start this season.
Freiman signed with the Braves on Wednesday, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports. Freiman was waived by the Athletics last week, but wasn't on the open market long as the Braves picked him up. The 28-year-old hit just .220/.279/.321 in 79 games at the Triple-A level last season, so he's unlikely to make much of an impact in the big leagues in 2016.
Freiman was released by the Athletics on Wednesday, Joe Stiglich of CSN California reports. Freiman received a demotion from the 40-man roster back in July, and proceeded to finished the year with Triple-A Nashville. He'll now be in search of a team looking to pick up a low-risk corner infield option.
First baseman Nate Freiman was outrighted to Triple-A Nashville by the Athletics on Sunday after he cleared waivers, per Bay Area News Group. Freiman was designated for assignment on Thursday after the team acquired pitcher Cody Martin. He was hitting .171 at the Triple-A level during a rehab assignment. Freiman spent most of the year on the disabled list with a back injury.
