Freese is Adam Berry of MLB.com for Tuesday's game against the Brewers, Joe reports.

EDGE Analysis

Freese will take a seat on the bench after starting six straight games at the hot corner, slashing an unimpressive .227/.292/.272 with 11 strikeouts over that stretch. In his place, Max Moroff will draw the start at third base, batting eighth.

Freese is not in the lineup Monday against the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

Freese has been locked in at the plate to start September -- hitting .379/.438/.517 in eight games -- but he'll head to the bench for a breather after starting six of the last seven contests. In his place, Sean Rodriguez will take over at the hot corner, batting sixth.

Freese is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

Freese has reached base multiple times in each game this month, but he'll head to the bench for a breather after starting eight of the last nine contests. Sean Rodriguez will take over for him at the hot corner.

Freese went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run during Monday's win over the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

Not to rain on Freese's parade, but the long fly came off outfielder Leonys Martin, and it was just his 10th of the campaign. With 46 RBI, 41 runs and a .264/.374/.380 slash line, Freese hasn't been able to move the fantasy needle outside of deep settings.

Freese is back in the Pirates lineup Monday, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

EDGE Analysis

Freese is just 3-for-26 over an eight-game stretch, but Josh Harrison went just 1-for-12 in the club's last series at Cincinnati and hasn't done enough to unseat Freese for the time being. Expect Freese to hold on to the starting role going forward.

Freese is out of the lineup Sunday against the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

With Freese managing just three hits in his last 26 at-bats, manager Clint Hurdle will send the veteran to the bench for the third time in nine games to clear his head. Since Freese is still maintaining an excellent .368 on-base percentage for the season, he's probably not at any major risk of losing his everyday role just yet, though his days off could become more frequent until the slump is over. Josh Harrison will slide over to the hot corner in Freese's stead for the series finale.

Freese, who went 0-for-4 with four strikeouts Friday, has one hit in his last 22 at-bats.

EDGE Analysis

The third baseman posted an .830 OPS in July but has finished with a .673 OPS or lower in every other month since April. Freese does boast an .843 OPS in 2017 against left-handed pitching, so he still carries some value on a matchup basis.

Freese is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

Freese has struck out in 13 straight games, slashing just .180/.263/.260 over that span, so he'll get the day off to clear his head. Josh Harrison will slide over to third base, opening up a spot for Adam Frazier to start at the keystone.

Freese is out of Saturday's lineup against the Cardinals, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The power hasn't really been there for Freese of late, but he is still getting on base at an excellent clip. He is slashing .305/.393/.429 with three home runs in 105 at-bats since the All-Star break. Josh Harrison gets the start at third while Adam Frazier slots in at the keystone.
