Freese (back) is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Athletics, Mike DiGiovanna reports.
Freese is out of the lineup for the second straight game due to a mid-back tightness. Even though Freese's injury does not appear to be anything too serious, there is no need to rush his return as the Angels have already guaranteed their playoff spot. He is considered day-to-day as Luis Jimenez gets the nod at third base.

Freese is not in the lineup Tuesday against the A's with a little mid-back tightess, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.
According to the report, the issue is nothing serious, but with the AL West crown already in the bag, the team can afford to give Freese a day to rest up. Gordon Beckham will take over at third base and bat ninth against right-hander Sonny Gray.

Freese was given a "mental break" Tuesday against the Astros, according to Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times.
Freese currently finds himself in an 0-for-17 skid while simultaneously being unhappy about being started as the designated recently, so manager Mike Scioscia decided it would be best to "let him exhale for a day." There has been no indication that this is anything more than a one-day break, but with Gordon Beckham having tallied six RBI in his last five games, Freese could see his playing time dip if he can't dig himself out of the hole.
