Freeman underwent season-ending surgery on his left shoulder Monday.

More specifically, the procedure addressed the labrum of Freeman's left shoulder, which had been a concern for the 22-year-old since late June. He was on Double-A Akron's 7-day injured list for approximately three weeks before returning to action July 18, but he appeared in only five games before being shut down again. Freeman is expected to make a full recovery from surgery and could be available for the start of the 2022 minor-league season.
