David Freese's finger not seriously injured

David Freese

Considering that Cardinals third baseman and ruling World Series MVP David Freese has already in his young career lost almost 140 games to injury, there was likely a bit of panic when it was announced he would miss Saturday's game against the Cubs. According to the team, Freese was suffering from "irritation of a finger on his right hand." 

Now, however, KMOX Sports tweets that, according to manager Mike Matheny, Freese has no structural damage in his hand and is listed as day-to-day. That's good news not only because the Cardinals are already stretched thin in the infield with Lance Berkman's injury but also because Freese is off to a tremendous start this season.

No word yet on whether he'll be in the lineup for tomorrow's 1:15 CST start.
