Freeman was designated for assignment by the Mariners on Wednesday.

A September callup by the Mariners in 2016, Freeman didn't perform well at the top level in a small sample size with both Seattle and Arizona. He does possess enough speed and a solid contact rate, but if he's not claimed off waivers, he will likely remain in the Mariners' system without a 40-man roster spot. The move was required following the club's acquisition of pitcher Chase De Jong from the Dodgers on Wednesday.
