Pirates' David Freese: Hitting third Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freese will start at first base and bat third Thursday against the Reds.

The Pirates are resting four regulars for the matinee affair Thursday, allowing Freese to not only enter the starting nine, but earn a prominent spot in the lineup. He could make a decent punt-play option for the Thursday DFS slate while opposing Luis Castillo, who has shown spotty command in 2018 following a promising rookie campaign.

Pirates' David Freese: Will play third against Nats
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freese will start at third base and bat seventh Wednesday against the Nationals.

Freese is hitless in eight career at-bats against starter Stephen Strasburg, along with three walks. The veteran will be making just his eighth start of 2018. He's done well in a reduced role, compiling an .829 OPS in 45 plate appearances.

Pirates' David Freese: Swats second homer Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freese went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a second run scored in Wednesday's 13-5 loss to the Cubs.

The veteran continued to produce when he gets a chance, and Freese now boasts a .357/.400/.786 slash line with two homers in only 14 at-bats. The Pirates seem committed to using Colin Moran as their starting first baseman, but Freese will get opportunities against left-handed pitching, giving him some value in deeper league and formats with daily transactions.

Pirates' David Freese: Walks as pinch hitter Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freese walked in his lone plate appearance during Monday's 5-4 win over the Twins.

Freese has only started in one of the Pirates' four games to date, but made the most of the opportunity, going 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI on Sunday in the second half of a twin bill with the Tigers. It's likely that Freese will be a fixture in the lineup against left-handed pitching, but he'll settle for the short side of a platoon at third base with Colin Moran this season.

Pirates' David Freese: Clear backup at third base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freese is expected to occupy the short side of a platoon at third base this season with Colin Moran slated to receive the majority of the starts at the position, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

While a platoon arrangement may be in the works initially, Freese could see his starting opportunities fade as the season wears on if the lefty-hitting Moran proves capable of handling southpaws. Though he received just five plate appearances versus lefties in the majors last season, Moran was adequate against them in 87 at-bats with Triple-A Fresno in the Astros organization, slashing .287/.323/.448. Freese is also an option to fill in at first base when Josh Bell requires a breather, but unless injuries ravage the Pirates' corner infield, it's looking unlikely that Freese will comes close to matching the 503 plate appearances he earned in 2017.
