2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

If you don't remember that Freeman pitched 24 games for the Cardinals last year, don't feel bad. Nearly every appearance was an inning or less, and he gave up 13 runs and 10 walks in just 20 innings. Still, the 25-year-old jumped a couple of levels in 2012 and struck out 27 batters in 30.1 Triple-A innings. He'll probably be up-and-down for St. Louis this year as one of the final options in the bullpen.
