Freeman accepted his outright assignment to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Tuesday. Freeman appeared seven times this season for the Brewers, and has an ERA of 12.91. He was traded to Milwaukee on April 5, and struggled much of the time he was used. Junior Guerra took Freeman's spot on the roster when he was originally designated for assignment on May 2. Freeman will look to make some crucial adjustments while he plays for Triple-A Colorado Springs.
Freeman has been designated for assignment. Freeman has a 12.91 ERA in just seven appearances this season, so the demotion doesn't come as too much of a surprise. After being traded to the Brewers on April 5, the left-hander was used sparingly and failed to make a great impression with his performance. Freeman will have a chance to make the necessary fixes in the minors as Junior Guerra takes his spot in the bullpen.
Freeman was traded to the Brewers on Tuesday in exchange for cash considerations, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Todd Rosiak reports. He had been designated for assignment by the Rangers last week, and the Brewers felt he could represent an upgrade in their bullpen so they pounced in a no-risk trade. Freeman will be in the Brewers' bullpen for Wednesday's game, and should start out working in low-leverage spots. The Brewers designated Ariel Pena for assignment in order to free up a spot on the 40-man roster.
Freeman was designated for assignment by the Rangers on Tuesday. A spot on the 40-man roster had to be freed up with Bryan Holaday coming aboard from Detroit, and Freeman was the casualty. Freeman made 54 appearances last season in his first year with the Rangers, posting a 3.05 ERA despite a walk rate pushing 15 percent. He misses bats and induces groundballs at an above-average clip, so another team may be willing to take a flier on Freeman.
The Rangers have purchased the contract of Sam Freeman from Triple-A Round Rock and designated Stolmy Pimentel for assignment, the team announced on Wednesday. Freeman has a 1.12 ERA with eight strikeouts and no walks in eight innings of work for Round Rock. Pimentel has a 3.97 ERA and seven strikeouts in 11 1/3 innings of work.
