Freeman is not in the lineup Wednesday against Detroit.
ANALYSIS
Freeman seemed like a potential replacement for Jose Ramirez (hand) at third base, but he's been on the bench for two of the three games since Ramirez hit the injured list. Yu Chang gets the nod at the hot corner again Wednesday, even with a righty (Jordan Zimmermann) starting for the Tigers.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Freeman's season was filled with highs and lows. Things started well, as he raked Triple-A pitching and earned his first callup to the big leagues, but his happiness was short-lived. He went 0-for-9 with five strikeouts in his brief stint with Arizona prior to being designated for assignment. The 29-year-old was plucked off waivers by the Mariners, but he struggled during his stints in Seattle as well. Freeman's biggest asset is his defensive versatility, as he has experience playing at every position outside of the battery. However, his lack of power and inability to hit advanced pitching may keep him stuck on the periphery of the major leagues.
