Freese is out of the lineup for Thursday's afternoon game against Milwaukee, Stephen J. Nesbitt of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

EDGE Analysis

With the afternoon matchup following Wednesday's night contest, Freese is getting the day off in the finale of Pittsburgh's four-game series with Milwaukee. Josh Harrison will take his place at third and bat second, opening the door for Max Moroff to take Harrison's regular spot at second base.

Freese is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Freese is 9-for-26 over the past week, helping him shrug off a post-DL slump. However, he'll hit the bench for a night off Wednesday, with Josh Harrison sliding over to man the hot corner in his place while John Jaso enters the lineup to complete the batting order.

Freese went 2-for-5 with his sixth homer of the season Tuesday in Baltimore.

EDGE Analysis

The infielder is batting .219/.318/.356 in 85 plate appearances since returning from a hamstring injury May 12, but has six hits in his last 14 at-bats. Freese, who has six RBI in six games since moving to the cleanup slot, continues to start at third base almost exclusively with Jung-Ho Kang out -- he's played 35 of his 38 games at the hot corner.

Freese went 3-for-4 with three RBI and a run during Sunday's win over the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

After a hot start to the season (.954 OPS through 18 games), Freese sustained a hamstring injury and was sidelined for 16 contests. He's posted a .206/.313/.309 slash line since being activated from the disabled list, and Sunday's solid outing was just his third multi-hit showing during that stretch. Hitting in the heart of the order does help provide a decent fantasy floor for deep settings, though.

Freese is not in the lineup Monday against the Diamondbacks, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Despite collecting hits in each of the last two games, Freese is just 5-for-26 (.192) over his last eight contests, so he'll head to the bench for Monday's series opener against the Diamondbacks. Josh Harrison will slide over to third base for the game, opening up a spot for Alen Hanson to start at second base.

Freese 1-for-4 with a walk and two runs scored in a 5-4 win over the Mets on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

He's struggled since coming off the disabled list, compiling a .163/.294/.302 line in 51 plate appearances. Freese decided against going on a rehab stint after missing three weeks with a hamstring injury, perhaps contributing to his woes. More likely, the 34-year-old is simply regressing after hitting .321 in April. He continues to start nearly every day at third base for the Bucs.

Freese is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

Freese has just three hits this month (3-for-26) since returning from the disabled list, so he'll head to the bench to try and regather himself. Josh Harrison will slide over to third base for the contest, opening up a spot for Alen Hanson to start at second base.

Freese went 2-for-3 with a solo homer, a walk and two runs in Saturday's win over the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

Freese launched his fourth bomb of the season to break a one-all tie in the fourth inning of a winning effort. This is just the second time in seven games that he's collected a hit since returning from the disabled list on May 12, but he's been a useful fantasy option with his current .273/.374/.468 slash line.

EDGE Analysis
