Brewers' David Freitas: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freitas was recalled from Triple-A San Antonio on Sunday.

Freitas had been battling an intercostal injury throughout the middle of August but recently returned to San Antonio's lineup. Having proven he's healthy, Freitas will join the Brewers as depth among their catchers. He's hit well in Triple-A, racking up a .381/.361/.561 line across 91 total games.

Brewers' David Freitas: Could join Brewers in September
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freitas (intercostal) is a candidate to join the Brewers when rosters expand in September, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Freitas has been sidelined since mid-August with an intercostal strain, but it sounds like he could join the Brewers for the stretch run if he heals in time. The backstop has spent most of the season at Triple-A, posting a .386/.466/.573 slash line with 12 home runs in 88 games.

Brewers' David Freitas: Shipped to Brewers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freitas was traded to the Brewers from the Mariners on Sunday for minor-league pitcher Sal Biasi.

Freitas will join Triple-A San Antonio as catching depth for the Brewers, serving in a similar role as he did with the Mariners. The 30-year-old is unlikely to see the majors unless Yasmani Grandal or Manny Pina suffers an injury.

Mariners' David Freitas: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freitas was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Friday.

Friday's acquisition of Tom Murphy from the Giants meant Freitas was no longer needed at the major-league level, and indeed the catcher was sent down to Triple-A Tacoma to clear room for Murphy on the 25-man roster. It's a bit of unfortunate news for the 30-year-old considering he scored a run and hit an RBI sacrifice fly in Thursday's opener against the Red Sox. Freitas was expected to build upon his 2018 numbers (.215/.277/.312 with a home run in 36 games) after the departure of Mike Zunino during the offseason, but evidently it'll be Murphy and Omar Narvaez who will benefit from the available playing time.

Mariners' David Freitas: Puts in strong spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freitas went 1-for-2 in an exhibition loss to the Padres on Tuesday. He finished spring play hitting .409 with two doubles over 22 at-bats across 12 games.

Freitas saw the first 102 plate appearances of his big-league career in 2018 and posted a .215/.277/.312 line with six doubles, a home run and five RBI. Looking ahead to 2019, he could be in for a solid amount of playing time, considering Omar Narvaez, who's never played more than the 97 games he logged with the White Sox last season, has replaced the departed Mike Zunino behind the dish. Freitas showed decent pop over a long minor-league career that began in 2010, hitting or topping 20 extra-base hits in five different stops despite logging 321 plate appearances or fewer in four of them.

Mariners' David Freitas: Pair of hits in start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freitas went 2-for-3 with a double in a loss to the Orioles on Tuesday.

Just recalled from Triple-A Tacoma, Freitas came through with one of only two multi-hit efforts for the Mariners. The 29-year-old excelled with the Rainiers, but his playing time during September is expected to be sporadic with both Mike Zunino and Chris Herrmann ahead of him.

Mariners' David Freitas: Rejoins Mariners for stretch run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freitas was recalled from Triple-A Tacoma on Saturday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

Freitas had a couple stints in the majors this season but only managed a .549 OPS in 78 at-bats. The 29-year-old crushed the ball for the Rainiers this season, slashing .349/.428/.527, and will serve as the Mariners' third catcher for their potential playoff push.

Mariners' David Freitas: Shipped to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freitas was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Sunday.

Freitas' demotion comes after No. 1 backstop Mike Zunino (ankle) was activated from the 10-day disabled list. During his two-and-a-half-week stint with the Mariners, Freitas appeared in six games, going 2-for-18 at the plate.

Mariners' David Freitas: Smacks solo home run in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freitas went 2-for-2 with a solo home run and a walk in a win over the Angels on Wednesday.

The backup catcher took Jaime Barria deep for his first round tripper of the season in the third inning, opening the scoring on the night. Freitas and Chris Herrmann are currently holding down the fort behind the dish while Mike Zunino (ankle) remains out. However, with Zunino likely back in time to start the second half of the season July 20, Freitas is presumably a candidate to return to Triple-A Tacoma in a corresponding move.

Mariners' David Freitas: Called up by Mariners
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freitas was recalled by the Mariners on Thursday.

With Mike Zunino (ankle) heading to the disabled list, the Mariners replenished their catching depth by bringing Freitas up from Triple-A Tacoma. Freitas has 67 plate appearances with the Mariners this season, posting a .217/.299/.283 slash line with four doubles. He figures to serve as the backup to Chris Herrmann during Zunino's stint on the DL.

Mariners' David Freitas: Returned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freitas was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Monday.

Chris Herrmann was activated from the disabled list in a corresponding move and will reclaim his role as the Mariners' backup catcher. Freitas made just four appearances during his most recent stint with the big club, going 3-for-14 with seven strikeouts. He'll continue to serve as organizational catching depth.

Mariners' David Freitas: Brought back to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freitas was recalled from Triple-A Tacoma on Wednesday, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

Freitas was summoned to the majors to take the roster spot of Chris Herrmann (ribs), who was sent to the disabled list in a corresponding roster move. He's expected to serve as the team's backup catcher while Herrmann is sidelined. The 29-year-old hit .217/.321/.304 across 19 games with the big club earlier in the year. Freitas will be active for Wednesday's game against the Rangers.

May 27, 2018 03:40 PM
Mariners' David Freitas: Sent back to farm
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freitas was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Sunday, TJ Cotterill of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Freitas has seen limited work this season as the Mariners' backup catcher, appearing in 19 games and hitting .217 with no home runs over 53 plate appearances. He'll be replaced on the active roster by Chris Herrmann, whose contract was selected from Tacoma in a corresponding move.

Mariners' David Freitas: Starting second game of Saturday twin bill
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freitas will start the second game of Saturday's doubleheader, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

The reserve backstop will give Mike Zunino a breather in the nightcap, as the latter will catch James Paxton in Sunday's start. Freitas has seen action in 14 games thus far in 2018, slashing .229/.325/.343 with four doubles, an RBI, five walks and five runs over 40 plate appearances.

Mariners' David Freitas: Timely two-bagger in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freitas went 1-for-3 with an RBI double and a run in a loss to the Astros on Thursday.

The reserve catcher finally broke the ice on the scoreboard for the Mariners with a double to left in the eighth that plated Guillermo Heredia, which served as his first RBI of the season. Freitas has outperformed fellow backstop Mike Marjama during Mike Zunino's absence with an oblique injury, hitting safely in five of his last six games while racking up a trio of two-baggers and also scoring three runs during that span. Although Zunino is expected back at some point during the upcoming weekend series versus the Rangers, Freitas may have earned himself the top backup catcher job with his efforts thus far.

Mariners' David Freitas: Returns to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mariners recalled Freitas from Triple-A Tacoma on Friday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

The Mariners placed starting catcher Mike Zunino (oblique) on the 10-day disabled list Friday, opening the spot for Freitas. Mike Marjama should serve as Seattle top option behind the plate in the meantime, with Freitas slated to serve as the team's backup catcher.

March 19, 2018 12:28 PM
Mariners' David Freitas: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freitas was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Sunday, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

Over the course of the spring, Freitas went 5-for-21 (.238) over 11 games for the Mariners. While he had a chance to make the team's Opening Day roster, Freitas will begin the upcoming season with Tacoma. However, if Mike Marjama doesn't deliver in his reserve role behind Mike Zunino, Freitas could appear in the show during the year.

Mariners' David Freitas: Claimed by Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freitas was claimed off waivers by the Mariners on Friday.

Freitas appeared in just six games for the Braves this past season, going 4-for-17 with two doubles and two RBI during his first taste of the big leagues. The 28-year-old catcher spent a majority of the year with Triple-A Gwinnett, slashing ,263/.338/.356 with three home runs and 21 RBI in 71 games with the team. Moving forward, he will provide depth behind Mike Zunino in Seattle, and is a solid candidate to join the club out of spring training.

Braves' David Freitas: Collects RBI in big-league debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freitas got the start in the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Phillies, going 1-for-3 with a double, a run scored and an RBI.

His fourth-inning two-bagger brought home Dansby Swanson before Ender Inciarte's single allowed him to score in turn, marking a very successful big-league debut for Freitas. The 28-year-old only had a .263/.338/.356 slash line in 72 games for Triple-A Gwinnett this season, however, so his fantasy ceiling is very limited even if Tyler Flowers' wrist injury ends up sidelining him for most or all of September. He's probably only in line for a start or two per week behind Kurt Suzuki.

August 30, 2017 10:32 AM
Braves' David Freitas: Joins Atlanta on Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freitas was called up to Atlanta prior to Wednesday's doubleheader against the Phillies.

With Tyler Flowers landing on the 10-day disabled list due to a wrist contusion, the club added Freitas to the active roster in a corresponding move. He will serve as the primary backup to Kurt Suzuki until Flowers returns. During 72 games with Triple-A Gwinnett this season, Freitas is hitting .263/.338/.356 with three home runs and 21 RBI. It's expected that the 28-year-old starts Game 2 on Wednesday while catching Julio Teheran.
