Freese is not in the lineup Saturday against the Nats, Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Freese got the nod at first base Friday, but he'll surrender the position back to John Jaso on Saturday. However, with Jaso struggling and Josh Bell being sent back to Triple-A on Saturday, Freese could be set for increased playing time in the infield.

EDGE Analysis

Freese's eighth bomb of the year came in the eighth inning and gave the Pirates a three-run lead in a game they'd go on to win. He's now hit safely in seven of his last eight games, and he's slashing .289/.365/.457 on the year.

Freese is out of the lineup Sunday against the Athletics.

EDGE Analysis

Freese has started the last seven games for Pittsburgh, even though three of those contests have been against a right-handed pitcher. The 25-year-old has improved against righties this season, posting a .269/.349/.398 slash line over 192 plate appearances. With the numbers on his side, Freese appears poised to be a regular starter for the Pirates moving forward, but he'll take a seat Sunday for a regular maintenance day.

Freese is out of the lineup Sunday against the Athletics, MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

As the top backup at both of the corner infield spots, Freese has been able to hang on to semi-regular at-bats even while both Jung-Ho Kang and John Jaso are healthy. Freese's value hasn't merely remain limited to NL-only formats, though: he's batting a respectable .264 with three homers and 15 RBI in 79 plate appearances this month. He'll get the day off Sunday, but don't expect Freese to remain out of the lineup for long, since he had started each of the seven previous games.

Freese went 2-for-5 with a solo home run -- his seventh of the season -- during Wednesday's 8-1 win at Seattle.

EDGE Analysis

On a night when the top of the Pirates' lineup struggled (2-for-15), Freese delivered as the cleanup hitter. The 33-year-old is hitting .287/.361/.448 with seven homers and 32 RBI this season, however he's just 10-for-42 (.238) over the last 14 days.

Freese went 2-for-5 with a double, a homer and three RBI in Tuesday's 15-4 loss to the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Freese's production came with the game well out of hand, but it counts all the same for fantasy purposes. The third baseman has hit in the heart of the Pirates order almost all year, yet this was just his second multi-RBI game of June. Hopefully this effort will jump-start the former Cardinal's bat moving forward.

EDGE Analysis

Freese will start for John Jaso in order to boost the lineup optimization against lefty Madison Bumgarner. The 33-year-old has been crushing southpaws all season, hitting .378 with two home runs and five RBI in 45 at-bats.
