$Signed a minor-league contract with the Cubs in January of 2018 that includes an invitation to spring training.
Having strong spring

March 24, 2018
Freeman is batting .408 through 49 Cactus League at-bats with two home runs, 10 RBI and four stolen bases.
ANALYSIS
The 30-year-old leads the Cubs in hits this spring with 20 and has been a pleasant surprise. Freeman likely won't make the 25-man roster to begin the year, with versatile players like Ben Zobrist and Tommy La Stella holding down reserve roles, but he's at least putting himself into the conversation in the event any spots open due to injury. Freeman will likely head to Triple-A, where he spent most of 2017 with three different organizations.

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.
