Dodgers first baseman David Freese is being held out of Monday’s matchup with the Anaheim Angels due to right knee tendinitis, according to Alanna Rizzo.

Kiké Hernandez will play first base on Monday as the Dodgers go toe-to-toe with Angels’ right-hander Griffin Canning.

According to Dave Roberts, there is no major injury to Freese and he should avoid any kind of IL stint:

In regards to the Freeway Series, Freese should be available regardless:

David Freese has provided quite the boost on the down low to the Dodgers lineup against both righties and lefties, enjoying a 164 wRC+ on the season, with a 185 wRC+ against righties and 148 wRC+ against lefties in 48 games.

Freese, 36, remains a huge member of the club and is a major component to their current run of success as well as their prospective success in the playoffs this season.

    Maybe, if this knee issue lingers for a while, an IL stint might not be a bad idea, since the depth on the roster is often talked about.
