Taking a personal guess, I would assume that Freese would be a prime candidate for activation after the All-Star Break to give the veteran some much-needed rest to keep him fresh.
Freese has been phenomenal this season, posting a 162 wRC+ in 56 games while putting together a cool .999 OPS. He has been elite against both lefties and righties this season, with a 135 wRC+ and 202 wRC+ against them, respectively. 202 wRC+ against righties as a right-handed bat will certainly play.
The offense could find use for David Freese as we head into the second half.
