Freese went 1-for-3 with a game-winning two-run home run in the seventh inning of the contest against the Rangers on Friday.

Freese worked the count to 3-2 without taking the bat off his shoulder before blasting the full-count offering over the center field wall to give the Angels and starter Garrett Richards a win. The home run was Freese's fourth this season, a mark which he did not reach until July in 2014. The power surge could make Freese an add in deeper leagues, while his low batting average (.250) and OBP (.295) could keep him safely on the wire for those who want to see a bit more.

Freese went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in a win over the Rangers on Monday.

Fortuitous scheduling provided Freese the opportunity to see three left-handed starters in the past week, and the 31-year-old didn't disappoint, homering off each starting southpaw. The jury will be out on Freese until he shows success against some righties, but the power he is displaying early on should have him on the radar screens of of prospective owners.

Freese went 2-for-4 with a solo home run against Jason Vargas in a loss to the Royals on Friday.

Freese has now homered against lefty starters on back-to-back days. The 31-year-old hit well against southpaws last season, tallying a .320/.386/.490 slash line in 100 at-bats, but saw his OPS fall more than 200 points against same-handed pitchers. As such, he could hold some value as a platoon option in deep leagues.

Freese went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in a victory over the Mariners on Tuesday.

It was a nice start to the season for Freese who took left-hander James Paxton deep in the fourth inning for the only score of the game. Even in what may have been his worst offensive year in 2014, Freese still hit lefties well, so prospective owners may want to see how he handles the rest of the league before imagining this is the year he turns it around.

Freese (elbow) returned to the lineup in for Sunday's Cactus League game against the Reds, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Freese missed four games because of a hyperextended elbow, but will play third base in the contest, which is a good sign that the issue is behind him heading into Opening Day.

Freese (elbow) is out of the lineup again Saturday, the Orange County Register's Jeff Fletcher reports.

This will be four straight days with Freese out of action with the hyperextended elbow. It does not yet seem like something that will keep Freese sideline through Opening Day, but if he does have to miss time Grant Green and Kyle Kubitza are the internal options to cover third base.

The same goes for outfielder Kole Calhoun, who is dealing with a minor triceps bruise. Neither player seems to be in any danger of missing Opening Day.

Freese hyperextended his left elbow Wednesday, and expects to be out at least a few days, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.

Freese apparently suffered the injury during a collision in Wednesday's Cactus League game against the Indians. The 31-year-old, who has 11 hits in 39 at-bats this spring, said he does not think he will need to miss extended time as a result of the issue.

Freese went 1-for-3 with a run scored in the Cactus League outing against the Cubs on Thursday.

Freese will head into 2015 looking to rebound from the worst statistical season of his career,when he tallied a .704 OPS in 134 games. There is no indication that the 31-year-old is feeling ill effects after undergoing minor ankle surgery this offseason, but he has just three singles in 16 at-bats this spring.

Freese came into camp "much leaner and more fit" in 2015, according to Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register

Freese has never played more than 144 games in his career, but said his intention is to "play a full nine innings and 162 games" after having minor ankle surgery in the offseason. Freese has watched his power evaporate over the last two seasons, having not posted a slugging percentage over .383 in that span, but will be given full opportunity to show what he can do at third base.
